NRI from Germany gives up land in Gujarat for bullet train project
NEW DELHI: An NRI octogenarian from Germany handed over her ancestral land in Gujarat for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project, making it the first stretch of land to be acquired by the national transporter in the state for the project, an NHSRCL official said on Friday.
Savita Ben, who runs an Indian restaurant in Germany, is originally from Chansad village and she shifted abroad 33 years ago after getting married, the official told PTI.
In Chansad, the National High Speed Rail Corporation Limited (NHSRCL) required 11.94 hectare of private land and Savita Ben sold hers for Rs 30,094.
"She flew down specially to hand over the land for the project and we are extremely grateful to her for having agreed to it. She returned to Germany where she lives with her son and runs a restaurant.
"This stretch of land is the first piece of land which we have acquired for the project in the state," NHSRCL spokesperson Dhananjay Kumar said.
On Thursday, the NHSRCL also bagged 0.29 hectare of private land in Paye village in Maharashtra's Thane district and gave a total compensation of Rs 3,32,76,468 to four plot holders.
"The sale deeds were signed and amount released today to bank account within three hours of signing documents," NHSRCL spokesperson Kumar.
The 508-kilometre corridor would require around 1,400 hectares of land in Gujarat and Maharashtra, of which 1,120 hectares is privately owned. Around 6,000 land owners will have to be compensated.
Earlier, NHSRCL has managed to acquire only 0.09 per cent of land in Mumbai for the project and has been dealing with protests across the two states over land acquisition issues.
The railways is now conducting consent camps in districts where it needs land to convince farmers to give up their land.

Savita ben will be investigated by real dacoits of congress, if they are elected to power. Chidamabaram will manufacture special charges and declare her terrorist and income tax absconer etc etc. Very important to develop India with Modi and Gujarat Model. 400 in 2019.

Bullet train is not at all important for the country now you have the improve the state of railway in the country and the stations and the law and order and those food outlets on the staion premises should be outside and not on the station premises they make the station dirty and they throw the waste water on to the railway tracks i have noticed that in my 56 years
