RAMGARH: The Ramgarh district administration asked families displaced by the proposed NTPC-JBVNL thermal power plant to submit their pending claims of compensation. The move comes after the affected families launched an agitation under the banner of Visthapit Prabhavit Sangharsh Morcha (VPSM) last month.
Deputy commissioner Sandeep Singh said, “The administration is ready to settle all pending cases of compensation. We have asked for details of the lands that have been acquired.”
Singh, however, said that the district land records suggest that there are no pending cases. “If there is any claim on part of the locals, they have been asked to provide documents for the same so that they are compensated as per provisions,” Singh said.
VPSM president Aditya Narayan Prasad said, “We have handed over our charter of demands to the district administration and on a peaceful dharna, but were lathicharged .”
