DELHI: As many as 200 south Delhi farmhouses may soon have to give up a part of their land for the expansion of proposed eight-lane Mandi Road. The project, connecting south Delhi to Gurgaon and Faridabad, requires acquisition of around 45 hectares of land and farmhouses along the Mandi Road stretch — on Chattarpur, Sultanpur, Gadiapur and Jonapur — are likely to be affected. Union urban minister Kamal Nath gave in-principal approval for the project on Monday and asked PWD and DDA to expedite the process.

Confirming this, PWD minister Rajkumar Chauhan said the acquisition is inevitable and the landowners will be compensated as per the government rate of Rs 75 lakh per acre. Experts however, say this rate is several times less than the market rate. "Mandi Road has to be constructed for which the land acquisition (of the farmhouses) has to take place. The department has already started work like lying of sewer lines. We are only waiting for the final alignment of the project to start the construction," added Chauhan.

 

The acquisition process however, is expected to start in a few months after DDA issues the land acquisition notification. At present, the project alignment that received a go-ahead from the lieutenant governor on May 10 has been put up on the UTTIPEC website for suggestions. The final meeting to pass the alignment is scheduled on June 10.

 

Interestingly, the current alignment has been designed in a way that will cause minimal disturbance to the surrounding villages. "Initial alignment proposed for the road was disturbing some part of Jaunpur village which would have involved removing built up structure like house of villagers. Therefore a new plan was proposed ensuring minimal disturbance to the village," said an official. The official, however, accepted that acquiring farmhouse land is going to be a big challenge. On Monday Nath had held a review meeting of the project that was attended by PWD secretary Arun Baroka and Chattarpur MLA Balram Tanwar.

 

The 9.05 kilometre corridor is expected to help commuters from Mehrauli, Greater Kailash, Chhattarpur, Saket etc to avoid jams at NH-8 and NH-2. At present, the road exists as a two-lane road riddled with potholes and is without a central verge. The proposed project will start at Mehrauli-Gurgaon road, go via Gwala Pahari and terminate at Gurgaon-Faridabad road — the shortest connect to Faridabad from south Delhi. The road will start with 45m right of way and widen it to 60m. The width of the carriageway is proposed to be 7.5 metres on each side.
