Metro rail: relief plan for the affected

50-60 acres of government land earmarked and frozen for the purpose Compensation could be land to land or 100 p.c. for the poor and weaker sections It could also be 50 p.c. relief with structural compensation award of GHMC

HYDERABAD: Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMR), the government's special purpose vehicle to oversee construction of the elevated project, is readying a relief and rehabilitation plan for owners of affected private properties on the three routes.

The compensation could even be land to land or 100 per cent for the poor and weaker sections as also those losing their entire livelihood. Alternatively, it could be 50 per cent compensation and the regular structural compensation award given by GHMC.

"Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy was very clear about total rehabilitation of poor people.

We have earmarked and frozen 50-60 acres of government land for the purpose so that residences can be built very near to the sites where their original plots are," explained HMR Managing Director N.V.S. Reddy.

The extent of land delineated for rehabilitation could be more while the project begins to shape up as HMR was holding negotiations with various government agencies.

The area would be over and above the 269 acres spread over 33 select stations and three depots to be given to Maytas, the BOT developer, for real estate development but would be outside the domain of the latter.The government has already made it clear that the 269 acres would be only for renting out and not to sell during the concession period of 35 years."We are not giving them an extra inch of land other than what is there in the agreement.Maytas can develop up to 18.5 million sq.ft. of property space - 12.5 million sq.ft. over depots and six million sq.ft over stations being built over government land," affirmed Mr. Reddy.

About 1,355 properties, both government and private are going to be affected across the three corridors - Miyapur to L.B.Nagar (Line 1), Jubilee Bus Station to Falaknuma (Line 2) and Nagole to Shilparamam (Line 3), for alignments, curves, bends and stations.Private properties alone constitute a vast majority totalling to 1,266 structures, hence the compensation package.


Railway panel for better deal to Vizag
Waltair division contributes a major share of revenue after Mumbai: Nandi Yellaiah
He wants Railways to run more trains from the division to Chennai, Hyderabad and New Delhi

Merge Waltair Division with the South Central Railway, he says

Member of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Railways Nandi Yellaiah wanted a better deal to Visakhapatnam corresponding to the revenue it is generating and its importance as a fast growing industrial city.

Out of the 67 Railway Divisions, Waltair is contributing a major share of revenue after Mumbai.

Visakhapatnam has many large industries and many more are coming up. But due to lack of sufficient number of trains and with trains being extended to Bhubaneswar or diverted without touching the Visakhapatnam Railway Station, the city's development is not as fast as it should be, Mr. Yellaiah said in a representation made to Railway Minister Laloo Prasad Yadav on Thursday.

"Since Waltair Division is under East Coast Railway, it has been neglected by the railway officials. Introduction of Garib Rath after a long delay and only after much public outcry, even though it is announced much earlier, is the best example. It shows the callous attitude and gross negligence meted out to Waltair Division by the East Coast Railway authorities. Extending trains originating from Visakhapatnam to Bhubaneswar is uncalled for", Mr. Yellaiah said.

MP's suggestions: He also wanted the Railways to run more trains from here to Chennai, Hyderabad and New Delhi as there is a huge demand for these trains.

To ensure justice to Waltair Division and Visakhapatnam railway station, Mr. Yellaiah wanted the Railway Minister to merge Waltair Division with the South Central Railway; in the place of Link/Dakshin express from Visakhapatnam to Hazrat Nizamuddin (Delhi) a direct train with a new name should be run so that the long wait in between to get the train linked up with link trains from other places is avoided and the train should start at 8 p.m. from here; a daily super-fast train to New Delhi similar to Tamil Nadu express must be introduced; a Rajadhani express from Hyderabad to New Delhi via Vijayawada, Visakhapatnam and Raipur must be introduced so that people of entire AP are benefited; the tri-weekly Samata Express from Visakhapatnam to Hazrat Nizamuddin via Raipur and the twice-a-week Swarna Jayanti Express via Vijayawada must be made daily trains; the Purushottam Express between Delhi and Bhubaneswar must be extended to Visakhapatnam to provide a direct train from here to Varanasi; overnight trains to Chennai and Hyderabad should be run to meet the huge demand for such trains and passenger trains starting at midnight at Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada be introduced between the two stations to cater to the needs of people.
