Vadodara Mumbai Expressway: Residents of villages in Kalyan taluka fight for compensation. Thane News – Times of India

Kalyan: Thousands of people living in 2,000 rooms affected by the Vadodara-Mumbai Expressway project belong to three villages here. Welfare Talukas of Thane district are struggling for compensation.
Land Acquisition Process for Vadodara-Mumbai Highway passes through childish, Umberni and Nandap villages. Affected people who bought rooms in the chawls of these areas a decade ago are struggling for compensation. Residents claim that the authorities are paying compensation to the landowners instead of paying them, despite their names appearing in the survey.
According to the survey conducted by the Public Works Department, the residents who will be affected due to the project will get a compensation of Rs 7-8 lakh per house. However, the landlords who got this money are now giving only Rs 4 lakh to the affected people. The owners sold their land by building rooms several years ago.
The residents have decided that they will not leave their home for this project if they do not get proper compensation.
Earlier, MLA Ravindra Phatak and MLA Jagannath Shinde had raised the same issue in the state assembly, during which the state directed the authority to pay compensation directly to those affected in the project.
Raising the issue, local councilor Namita Mayur Patil has now warned that she will go on a hunger strike outside the office of the Special Development Officer (SDO) in Kalyan if the affected people are not compensated in the next 15 days.
When asked about the issue, SDO- Kalyan Abhijit Bhande Patil said, “Those who had proper property documents, we have compensated them. But those who have brought property on notarized paper documents, we have given compensation to the landlords on the condition that they will give money to the landlords. If the landlords do not compensate the residents, I will meet them and try to resolve the issue.
