Land acquisition notification in February

In this regard, farmer Ranveer Singh had made a complaint to the Vigilance. He mentioned that a 32-kilometer road was being built. The central government issued a notification for land acquisition in February 2021.

During this, it was found that some influential people had purchased the land, while according to Section 3D, land cannot be purchased and trasfered after the schedule. He had informed the Vigilance about some registrations even a few copies of the same have also been handed over to the authorities.

Fraudulently planted gardens

The complainant said that the people who are involved in the source of the land purchase have also planted trees and made parks on that land even after the notification so that a huge amount can be recovered from the government. He said that some photographs related to this have also been seized by the Vigilance.

Earlier in Mohali, a case of fraudulently planting guava, in the matter of land acquisition for a government project also came to light.
