Kerala government has decided to implement attractive package to those whose land will be acquired in connection with Kannur airport.
‘The package will be implemented in three ways. Those who lose their land will not get any special benefits directly. For them a special package will be given shape,’ an official release said today.
Special preference will be given to those who lose their homes. For such people and to those who lose their land will get special benefits along with compensation and will also get special exemption for construction of homes. PWD will check other possibilities as well. The idea of Green Field Road including airport is given prominence.
Two proposals have been received regrading roads in Kannur on the basis of the discussion carried out by Minister KC Joseph. Kannur City Road Improvement Project will be tabled for sanction from Finance Department within 15 days.
It was also decided to extend the present relaxation to six more months in connection with sand mining in the district. State government will approach Green Tribunal and MOF to get sanction for below water level sand mining.
