Relocation of 3,800 families likely for Noida International Airport

A three-month social impact assessment (SIA) survey for the Noida International Airport phase 2 at Jewar found that nearly 3,800 families in six villages are likely to be displaced as a result of the project, with many residents ready to donate their agricultural land for the development of the region.

The survey was conducted from 1st June at Kureb, Karoli Bangar, Mundhera, Birampur, Dayanatpur, and Ranhera villages in the district under the provisions of the Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation, and Resettlement Act, 2013.

On September 25, a six member team from the Gautam Buddha University submitted its report to the district administration.

The second phase of construction will require the acquisition of approximately 1,185 hectares of private land from the six villages. For the second phase of the project, a total of 1363.45 hectares will be handed over to the Zurich AG subsidiary that is developing the Noida airport.

The public hearing, which will compile the affected villagers' objections and suggestions, is scheduled to begin on October 10.

According to the media, the survey team encountered some opposition in Karoli Bangar village, and a portion of the surveyed population expressed concern about displacement.

The Yamuna Expressway is extremely close to Karoli Bangar village, according to officials.

About 230 people live in the village, and more than half of them are opposed to the plan to relocate.

Professor Bandana Pandey of Gautam Budh University led the study to assess and sketch the socio-economic profile of the villagers affected by the project and the impact on their livelihoods. Faculty members RK Srivastava, Om Prakash, Amit Kumar Awasthi, and Anand Pratap Singh made up the rest of the SIA team.
