    • Chandigarh, Sept 27– Haryana Cabinet which met under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister, Mr Manohar Lal here today approved a proposal of Irrigation and Water Resources Department to denotify 1,019.2994 acres of land acquired for construction of Dadupur Nalvi Irrigation Scheme. 
    • Initially Dadupur Nalvi scheme was initiated in year 1985 and project was approved by Govt. for Rs. 13.00 crores for irrigation and recharging of ground water in the Yamunanagar, kurukshetra and Ambala districts. For implementing the scheme, 190.67 acre land was acquired during 1987-90. But scheme could not be further taken up. Later on during October 2005, project was again approved by Govt. for Rs. 267.27 crores for this scheme in which Shahbad Feeder, Shahbad Distributory and Nalvi Distributory alongwith 23 No. offtaking channels were to be constructed for utilizing 590 cs discharge. As per the project 2246.53 acre land was to be acquired/used for construction of this scheme. Out of it, deptt. Acquired a total of 1019.2994 acre land for construction of main channels i.e Shahbad Feeder, Shahbad Disty and Nalvi Disty. Acquisition of this land costed 75.98 crores as per award. Additionally Rs. 116.35 crores were paid as enhancement as per court orders. Thus till date a total of Rs. 192.33 crores have been paid to land owners for 1019.2994 acre land. Department also incurred expenditure of Rs. 111.167 crores on execution of these three channels.
    • The other channels which were to irrigate 92532 hectare area of these districts could not be taken up due to resistance of land owners/farmers as farmers were not interested to give their land for construction of minore due to the fact that water would be available to them only during rainy season when they do not require water. Hence Govt. abandoned the execution of these channels. 
    • It is also brought out that Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) in its annual report of year 2011-2012 on Social General and Economic Sector (Non Public Sector Undertakings) Report No.3 of the year 2013 raised the observation regarding this scheme, that the reply of department regarding usefulness of the project was not convincing as the primary objective of project of providing canal irrigation could not be fulfilled. The department’s reply of partially recharging the area and providing irrigation facilities to the land surrounding the channel constructed was also not found convincing to Public Accounts Committee as mentioned in the report of the CAG for the year ending 31.03.2012 which was presented to the House on 10.03.2017.
    • The land owners whose land was acquired from 2005 onwards were not satisfied with the award of lower courts and filed RFAs in Hon’ble Punjab and Haryana High Court. The Hon’ble Punjab & Haryana High Court has pronounced judgment on dated 05.05.2016 awarding compensation @ Rs. 116.83 lacs per acre + incidental charges. As per the judgment of the Hon’ble Punjab & Haryana High Court Chandigarh an amount of Rs. 566.49 crores has become payable in respect of  167.27 acres of land only.
    • Since enhancement for only 167.27 acre land has been given as Rs. 566.49 crores by Hon’ble Court, Govt. has not found the scheme feasible and hence decided to abandon the scheme and denotify the acquired land.
