Compensation Not Disbursed To Genuinely Affected Villagers In Anjaw District
Itanagar: A section of villagers from Hayuliang and Khupa villages in Anjaw district and from Loiliang and Daughat villages in Lohit district has claimed that compensation against the 15 km Khupa-Matengliang-Hunli road under the Trans-Arunachal Highway project in Anjaw district has not been disbursed to the people genuinely affected by the project. In a release, the villagers said that, despite their objections in a complaint letter submitted to the Anjaw deputy commissioner in April 2015 regarding the joint survey which had been conducted on 11 and 12 April 2011, and despite their appeal for conducting a fresh survey, the administration went ahead and released the compensation “even when there were outright objections.” “The administration had summoned two meetings in connection with the land dispute to solve the matter at the ADC Hayuliang office on 17 April 2015, and 13 May 2015, but no decision was arrived at; but shockingly, compensation was disbursed on 27 May 2015.
“The compensation was released based on the earlier joint survey. Also, the public notice for the disbursement of compensation was served on 27 May 2015, and on the same day the beneficiary received the amount,” the villagers alleged.
