Dhanbad: Though Belgaria is known as a rehab township for those families residing in Jharia influenced by subterranean flame , it’s one of the five colonies in Baliapur block which were suggested to be developed to change the 1. 04 lakh families. Further, in accordance with the master plan, besides Baliapur block, three townships have been to develop in Baghmara block for non-BCCL households and yet another at Nirsa block to change equally BCCL and non-BCCL families.
But, delay in the process of obtaining land as a result of unwillingness of these owners to associate with their plots within the collapse of their authorities to supply high prices slowed the rehab procedure and abandoned the government with distance crunch.
Several measures were initiated to move about 950 acre property possessed by Bharat Coking Coal Limited (BCCL) at Mukunda region of Baliapur in 2013 and also to obtain 468.3 acre property in 2015 in six distinct areas throughout the district in accordance with the urgency supply of Land Acquisition for Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act 2013, however the procedure couldn’t be completed as a result of legal and procedural hurdles.
Jharia Rehabilitation and Development Authority’s (JRDA) initiative to obtain land besides Belgaria started together with the attempt to obtain 120 acre raiyati property in Nipania Mauza of Baliarpur block, 4km from Belgaria Township. The jurisdiction also attempted to get Dokra and Sabaigara regions (300 acre) in Baliapur however the procedure couldn’t be completed.
In 2013, a new effort to build a different colony on a 950-acre property of BCCL in Mukunda region has been pioneered. BCCL gave its NOC into JRDA to build homes, however, the procedure met a lawful wall as structure without transfer of property wasn’t possible. The property was also situated near the fire-hit regions of Jharia.
JRDA in 2014 issued a tender to build 400 temporary tenements to a 3. 26 hectare property of recovered mines, but the procedure was later shelved as throughout the technical and scientific analysis analysis, the sturdiness of these websites for building houses couldn’t be warranted.
In 2015, confronted with the crisis scenario of subsidence and gas emission, JRDA attempted to hasten the procedure for property acquisition under the urgency provision of Land Acquisition for Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013, however the state authorities afterwards did not consent to cover the higher speed.
On being contacted, former Dhanbad deputy commissioner Amit Kumar stated,”Together with the growth in the height of these buildings, property demand has diminished. We’ll also get 800 quarters constructed by BCCL which will reduce our land demand for your rehab.”
