Aug 10 2017 (10:55)   Delay in land acquisition hits railway projects

Entry# 2375851   News Entry# 311278         Tags   Past Edits
Indore: Railway projects worth thousands of crores hit the roadblock due to inordinate delay in land acquisition. At least three projects in the division fall victim to such delays, which may overrun the estimated budget.
In a meeting held in September 2016 with high-ranking officials of the railways and district collectors, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan instructed them to complete the task of land acquisition for Indore-Dahod and Dhar-Chhota Udaipur new rail line and Mhow-Khandwa gauge conversion projects within six months. The railway officials and officials of the districts concerned had promised to meet the target. But even after 10 months, no progress has been made in this direction. Still the land acquisition work is going on with snail’s pace and it
would take at least one year to get land for the projects.
Ajit Singh Narang of Malwa Chamber of Commerce and Industries, who is also a member of Western Railway’s Zonal Railway Users Consultative Committee (ZRUCC) and Jagmohan Verma, member of WR ZRUCC, expressed regret over slow pace of working of officials of the railway and district administration.
They said Indore-Dahod and Dhar-Chhota Udaipur new rail line project had to be completed by 2011, as while laying the foundation stone of the project in 2008 the then Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh had announced to complete the project in the scheduled period.
Similarly, the gauge conversion work of Mhow-Khandwa section had to be completed much earlier. But due to inordinate delay in land acquisition and not finalising alignment of the track in Mhow-Sanawad section, the project is getting delayed. Both the members of WR’s ZRUCC inform that the delay would escalate the project cost.
Narang and Verma said they requested Divisional Commissioner Sanjay Dubey to take note of the situation and held a meeting of all stake holders to review the progress of work and instruct officials to solve land acquisition matter soon.
