Noida (UP): A hundred and fifty nine more landowners have agreed for the acquisition of their land by the Uttar Pradesh government for the proposed Jewar airport, MLA Dhirendra Singh said Saturday.

The Jewar MLA said this in a statement after an interaction with farmers and landowners at the villages, whose land is to be acquired for the mega project in Gautam Buddh Nagar district.

A total of 5,000 hectare of land is to be acquired for the proposed airport with an estimated cost of Rs 15,000 crore to Rs 20,000 crore. Over 1,300 hectares of the land is to be acquired from five villages in the first phase of the project.

"159 landowners from Ranhera, Rohi, Kishorpur etc have agreed to acquisition of 32 hectare of land for the airport project. Earlier 1,411 landowners have agreed for the acquisition of 575 hectare of land," Singh said.

The MLA urged the people to consider the development of the area and the future of their children and upcoming generations and decide accordingly.

During the interaction the villagers raised with the MLA their concerns over the land where they would be resettled and sought waiver of stamp duty in new land registry.

Singh assured the farmers that their concerns would be taken up with the government and efforts will be made to ensure that they do not have to pay the stamp duty while purchasing land elsewhere in the state, according to the statement.

"Your assembly constituency (Jewar) will get on the world map if the airport with the best facilities is built in your area. It's fortunate that out of the 403 constituencies in Uttar Pradesh, Jewar has been selected for the project.

"All these things are favourable to you, so this opportunity should not be missed otherwise the only option later will be to repent at a lost opportunity," Singh told the villagers.
