HC Paves Way for Dwarka E-way Completion, Disposes of Petition

HC Paves Way for Dwarka E-way Completion

Gurgaon, 22 March: Paving the way for the completion of long-delayed Dwarka expressway (also known as the Northern Peripheral Road or NPR), the Punjab and Haryana High Court disposed of the petition by Satyendra Singh, while directing the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) to settle claims of landowners, whose property has been acquired to develop Sector 110 A, within one month.

The move will allow the Huda to start the rehabilitation of oustees and the completion of the Dwarka Expressway.

To resolve the legal tussle, Huda has agreed to formulate a special package or allot alternative plots and thus rehabilitate oustees by April 10. The claims of petitioners will be settled by the Huda under the Relief and Rehabilitation (R&R) Policy of 2010.

The High Court order also implies that the stay granted on the allotment of alternative plots to the GPA/ SPA holders will be lifted as it was clubbed with the said petition.

Satyendra Singh had earlier filed petition alleging that Huda failed to give compensation or alternative plots to the original land owners, while it was giving plots to GPA/ SPA holders.
Developers have welcomed the move. “The court order will speed up completion of the expressway, which will benefit large number of people who have invested in projects along the NPR,” said Ravish Kapoor, director, Elan Group.

“We hope Huda will resolve the issue at earliest to complete the remaining portion of Dwarka expressway and benefit home buyers of projects along expressway,” said Prakhar Sahay, Founder, Reckon Mind and homebuyer.

As per Huda records, around 212 out of 568 oustees, from New Palam Vihar and Kherki Daula, were found eligible for alternative plots.

The failure to rehabilitate the oustees in Sector 110 A had been delaying the completion of the highway. The project was expected to be completed in 2010 but missed several deadlines.
