Construction work for Nabinagar power plant begins: a big dilemma resolved!

Construction work for Nabinagar power plant begins: a big dilemma resolved!

Editorial introduction: for several months, Nabinagar posed in front of the thinking Bihari a problem and a dilemma faced in numerous places all over the country. We all know how crucial electricity production is for Bihar. But should that be done by sacrificing the interests of the landowner in Nabinagar? We took different sides on the matter but the truth is Nabinagar should be seen as a precedent – by overlooking the interests of local people once, we set a terrible precedent that can snowball into a horrible social spectacle. This is why an amicable settlement between the residents of Nabinagar and the NTPC is an event to celebrate. In the coming years, Nabinagar alone will provide Bihar with 2500 mw electricity. Isn’t that a reason for cheer too?

Negotiated peace: the enlightened approach!

Aurangabad : according to press reports, finally, construction work for the proposed 1980 MW thermal power plant at Nabinagar in Bihar’s Aurangabad district began today following resolution of the compensation-related issues of local farmers. The demand for adequate compensation by the farmers for their land acquisition for the proposed power plant being constructed in a joint venture by the NTPC’s subsidiary unit Nabinagar Power Generation Company Ltd and the state government has been finally resolved after over a four-and-a-half month deadlock, the sources said.

All the parties, comprising farmers, district administration and the construction company, mutually resolved the issues during three stages of dialogue held among them to sort out compensation-related issues, they said. Following the resolution of the farmers’ demand for compensation, the construction company has started the levelling of the acquired land for construction of the proposed thermal power project, the sources added.

Bihardays had repeatedly reported on the farmers’ agitation alleging inadequate compensation for the acquired land [http://wp.me/p14ArU-24B].
