Roadmin plans Rs 60K cr land buys, says prices shot up after new Act 3.5.2017 DNA: Top News
The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) is planning to spend around Rs 60,000 crore on land acquisition this year for various highway projects in the pipeline. For any infrastructure project -- be it roads, railways, logistics park, recreation zones, special economic zones, industrial parks -- land acquisition is the biggest challenge. Several road or highway projects are stuck or delayed due to land acquisition related issues, which has been among the top reasons for the delay in completing such projects. "As you are aware that since 2014, when the land acquisition law came into force, prices of land shot up substantially. This year itself we are spending Rs 60,000 crore on land acquisition," said Nitin Gadkari. On the reasons for land acquisition and the cost involved, he said a lot of road infrastructure work is being undertaken covering mega cities and regions, too. "In the road sector, earlier there was national highway length of 96,000 km out of the total around 52,00,000 km road ...

Brigade Group accused of dumping soil in Varthur lake 28.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Citizen volunteers from Thubarahalli and AECS Layout say real estate major, Brigade Group, is dumping soil on the Varthur lakebed in southeastern Bengaluru. On April 27, a group of volunteers noticed trucks streaming out of Brigade Tech Garden in Brookefields Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and headed for the Varthur lakebed near Vibgyor High. "We called the police who swung into action and seized five to six trucks the same day. A cursory examination showed that the samples of soil taken from Brigade Tech Garden and the lakebed were the same," said a volunteer, who would not be quoted. The volunteers have been keeping a close watch ever since a local resident filmed earthmovers dumping soil in the Varthur lakebed recently. The video spurred the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), the custodian of Varthur lake, to file a police complaint. Residents said the police were yet to make arrests. According to residents, trucks have been dumping soil in the lakebed for several months now but government agencies ...

How Dalit lands were stolen 26.4.2017 FrontLine: Social Justice
The British government, on the basis of a 1891 report on the subhuman living conditions of “Pariahs” by James H.A. Tremenheere, Acting Collector of Chengleput, assigned 12 lakh acres of land for distribution to the “depressed classes” of the Madras Presidency to empower them socially and economically. But more than 100 years later, much of this land is in the possession of non-Dalits, and the struggle to reclaim them has seen little progress. An exclusive story on how this tale of usurpation is still being played out. By ILANGOVAN RAJASEKARAN

Stopping water to MCF will hit agri activities: Lobo 8.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Mangaluru south MLAJRLobo on Saturday said if water supply to industrial houses, especially Mangalore Chemicals and Fertilisers Limited (MCF) is stopped, it will majorly impact the agriculture activities in the state. Lobo was replying to a question on action taken to stop the water supplying to industrial houses — mainly MCF, Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL) and Mangalore Special Economic Zone (MSEZ) — in the wake of drinking water crisis in the city. He said stopping water to MCFwill have a cascading effect as it is the only fertiliser producing industry in the state. The production is closely monitored by the Union government to meet the demands of agrarian community, as the sowing activities will pick up and farmers will be in the need of fertilisers after rain. In this view, it will be absurd to stop supply of water to MCF, he felt. Mayor Kavitha Sanil said MRPL and MSEZhave been categorically instructed not to draw water beyond 10 MGD fromAMRDam at Shamboor ...

Green norms violated in SEZ, Surathkal highway widening: CAG 10.3.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Six Karnataka projects, including the Phase 1 of Mangalore Special Economic Zone and widening of a highway near Surathkal, have been named by the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG)among the violators of environmental norms, which the project developers were supposed to adhere to. These projects were accorded green approval with conditions that the project proponents were to follow to improve the ecological condition of the surrounding areas. However, a reality check by the CAG came up with a completely different picture, exposing the flaws in Indias environmental regulatory system. For instance, the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) was given approval for a project to widen the Kundapura-Surathkal highway with a stipulation that 14,956 trees would be cut. But 18,400 trees were felled as NHAI implemented the project without any approval for cutting down more than 3,400 additional trees. The environment management plan of the first phase of the Mangalore Special Economic Zone project had a ...
