Farmers to get 5-times land compensation

Farmers in <g data-gr-id="10">Dondaicha</g> constituency in Dhule district will be the first beneficiaries of five times higher compensation for land acquisition, following the new rate announced by the Maharashtra government.

The coal-based thermal power project was stuck in BJP legislator Jaykumar Rawal’s constituency for the last two years as farmers opposed the land acquisition process and waited for a new Bill after it was introduced in Parliament by the then UPA government.

According to Revenue Minister Eknath Khadse, farmers will be content and allow their land to be acquired if they get a compensation higher than their expectation.
