“Fulfilled all-land compensation commitments for Gadarwara project,” says NTPC
NTPC Ltd has fulfilled all its commitments for the acquisition of land for its 1,600 MW Gadarwara power project, which is in tandem with the,Madhya Pradesh government's rehabilitation department and the tripartite agreement signed with the land owners and administration, according to the state-run company. It will continue to work towards the local area development and betterment of the affected people even after the project goes on stream. The public sector power utility has sought support from the local people for the project of national importance from which half of the electricity generated will be for Madhya Pradesh, the company said. The project-affected farmers have been agitating at Gadarwara in Narsinghpur district, demanding jobs in the central PSU. Former Union Minister and senior BJP leader Yashwant Sinha also took part in the agitation in support of the demands of the project-affected people last week.
