Early Times Report
Srinagar, July 12: On the directions of High Court and continuous reporting by Early Times , authorities have started making reassessments of fruit trees coming under alignment of Semi Ring Road in Kashmir valley. Sources say that rates of fruit will be enhanced 4 times as fresh rates will be issued within a weeks time by Government . The new rates will be applicable in Jammu belt also where hundreds of mango trees will be axed in Jammu / Kathua districts...
Details available with Early Times reveal that Department of Horticulture has started making reassessment of fruit trees in Budgam / Srinagar after the aggrieved orchardists got a relief from High Court.
Sources say that team constituted by Directorate of Horticulture visited several villages of Budgam on Wednesday.
It is also learnt that rates of apple have been enhanced from Rs 16 to Rs 66 / Kg and Plum from Rs 13 to Rs 70 / Kg. The fresh orders in this direction will be issued by Government next week sources said.
As reported already the affected farmers of Budgam and Srinagar whose land is going to be acquired for Semi Ring Road had got a great relief from High Court last month after the Jammu & Kashmir High Court stayed the felling of fruit trees. The High Court had directed the Government to undertake fresh assessment within 28 days of time which has been started by the Horticulture depar

ment in some areas.
High Court bench of Justice M K Hanjura had ordered that Government must undertake fresh assessment of the fruit bearing trees in Budgam and Srinagar wherein farmers allege that compensation paid on account of fruit trees was too less and was not enhanced at all from last 23 years. High Court has directed Govt to main present status of the trees and to undertake fresh assessment with 4 weeks of time.
After almost 23 years Government had decided to revise the rates for compensation provided in lieu of fruit trees which are to be cut down during the process of Land Acquisition. As on date the compensation is provided as per 1995 rates which is Rs 16 / Kg for apple and Rs 13 for plum peach and plum etc. Government through Department of Horticulture had constituted a committee which was to submit report to administrative department by January 1st week, but rates were yet to be revised. This prompted the farmers to knock High Court doors. Now Govt has finally agreed to enhance the rates of the fruit trees at least 4 times sources say... Early Times has been following this case from last 8 months. Affected farmers have praised the role of Early Times. " We are highly indebted to Early Times for their cooperation and support to our cause. We hope rates of land will also be enhanced soon" said Mohammad Afzal an aggrieved farmer from Wathoora Budgam.
