UP govt accepts report of probe  against two former DMs of Meerut

Wednesday, 20 November 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

The Uttar Pradesh government accepted the probe report of Meerut Divisonal Commissioner against two former district magistrates of Ghaziabad for their alleged role in acquisition of land for Delhi-Meerut Expressway.

The report suggested a CBI probe into the matter along with action against then DM of Ghaziabad, Vimal Kumar Srivastava and Nidhi Keserwani along with other officers. The report was tabled before the cabinet in Lucknow on Tuesday. State government spokesperson Srikant Sharma said that former Meerut Divisonal Commissioner Prabhat Kumar, in his report on September 29, has claimed that there were several anomalies in acquisition of around 71.1495 hectares of land in four villages, including Dasna, at the old rate of compensation even after a new Compensation Act came into force.

“Due to the arbitration moved by farmers, the land could not be acquired leading to a delay in the project,” the report said recommending stringent action against the erring officials, including the DM. The cabinet instructed that compensation for land acquired by the government for projects should be paid as per the new Act. After the probe report suggesting that farmers should get the new compensation rate, the total amount of compensation would be Rs 486.98 crore.
