NH-37 Compensation Left Out Properties Land and Structures Owner’s Association (NCLPLSOA) on Monday decried against a complaint on joint survey conducted by SDO office Nungba, NHIDCL officials, RO construction on the NH-37 between Khongsang to Kambiron Nungba, Noney on January 5.
A release issued by NCLPLSOA stated that the association decried the complaint on the joint survey conducted by SDO office Nungba, NHIDCL officials, RO construction along with the villagers on the NH-37 from chainage no. 101+280 to 131+280 between Khongsang to Kambiron Nungba subivision, Noney district in January in order to assess the left out properties including graveyards and collateral damages.
As per the order issued by Noney DC on December 30 Ref no. 11/01 DC (NNY)/NH-& R/2018/03, the joint survey was officially conducted with the staff of SDO, Nungba PWD, Horticulture and Forest departments representatives, Manipur police personnel, NHIDCL RP constructions and the affected land owners, it informed.
However, “some individuals with vested interest” were using the JAC on NH-37 Land and Properties Affected Owners Association which was already dissolved on August 28, to submit complaint to the Noney DC and falsely accusing the authority of maliciously and intentionally excluding some rightful land and property owners, it maintained.
It may be noted that as per NHIDCL instruction besides the structures which were left out in the last compensation payment, those structures which have been constructed or are under construction after the payment of the last compensation were not included under the purview of the joint survey, it mentioned.
It also stated that the JAC had falsely accused the assessment team of “sidelining” one Gaibilung Kamei who was allegedly the Nungba Village Authority gazette chairman and added that Gaibilung Kamei is not a member of Nungba Village Authority nor published in the official gazette as the chairman of Nungba Village Authority.
It also urged the authorities concerned to approve and recommend the joint survey report conducted on January 5 to carry the matter forward to the relevant authority for timely payment of the due compensations. “The public will also cooperate with the department and agency concerned in expediting the earth cutting of those compensated except the left-out portion of the highway in the near future in the larger public interest,” it added.
