EGoM sets rules to avoid forcible acquisition of land

25
Apr '07
With land acquisitions for industrial projects including special economic zone SEZs had gone berserk and protests in the last few months, the West Bengal Government shelved all such projects until the development of a national policy on acquisition of land for industries.

The Centre also has decided not to pass any proposals until it has a certificate of recommendation from the West Bengal State Government.

Until now the State Government has sent recommendation to the Board of Approval (BoA) for 119 projects out of 360 proposals. The Commerce Department has decided to consider these 119 proposals in the next two months.

The BoA has scheduled for meetings in this regard on May 9, May 30, June 5 and June 22. The May 9 meeting will give formal approval to the 19 in-principally cleared proposals with land, the 119 new proposals will be taken up in the subsequent meetings.

However, the Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoM) has set a number of safeguards to avoid forcible acquisition of land for private developers and placing a ceiling of 5,000 hectares on the size of SEZs.
