Direction issued by the CommissionThis proceeding shall be read in continuation of the earlier proceeding of the Commission dated 7.1.2013. It was alleged by the complainant that four bighas of land belonging to Smt. Triveni Devi Chauhan, r/o village Kabrai, District Mahoba, UP, was used by the PWD in the year 2006 for construction of a road. However, Smt. Triveni Devi Chauhan was not given any compensation. When she approached the police station, her complaint was not registered. Pursuant to the directions of the Commission, the SP Mahoba, and the SE, PWD, Mahoba had sent their reports dated 30.10.2011 and 8.11.2011 respectively. As per the police report, 0.90 acre of land comprised in Rakba no. 182, situated in village Kabrai, belonging to Smt. Triveni Devi Chauhan, was used by the PWD while constructing a road. However, she was not paid any compensation by the PWD. Hence, the case did not relate to the police department. The SE stated in his report that a by-pass road, 3,600 km. long connecting NH No. 86 and NH No. 76 was constructed by the PWD in the year 2007. During the construction, no farmer raised any objection. The report further stated that a 'Chak Road' already existed and at some places private land was also used. However, there was no provision for paying any compensation to any farmer. Admittedly, some land belonging to the complainant was used by the PWD in the construction of the road. Hence, she should have been given compensation as per law. The Commission therefore directed the Chief Secretary, UP to submit a report in the matter. Pursuant thereto, the Special Secretary, PWD, UP Government, Lucknow, has sent a report dated 18.2.2013 enclosing therewith reports of other officers and a copy of the registered sale deed of the land executed by Smt. Triveni Devi in favour of the State Government of UP through Executive Engineer, Mahoba after receiving a cheque dated 15.12.2012 of SBI Mahoba for Rs. 9,10,000/- as sale consideration. The Commission has considered the above report and papers. Due to the intervention of the Commission and taking up of the matter with the Chief Secretary of UP Government, the complainant Smt. Triveni Devi, owner of the land ultimately got justice. The State Government paid her the fair price of her 0.90 acres of land used for construction of public road at the market rate. Thus her grievance stood satisfactorily removed. No further enquiry/action is required. The case is closed. Inform the complainant accordingly.
