Early Times Report

Srinagar, July 16: After a gap of more than 23 years, J&K has finally decided to revise the rates of fruit trees which get axed during land acquisition for any public utility project.
The Governor's regime, as per sources, has directed Director Horticulture Jammu to constitute a committee which can finalize the fresh rates. Farmers affected by Semi Ring Road in Jammu have welcomed this decision. As reported already, on the direction of High Court and continuous reporting by Early Times, the authorities had started making reassessments of fruit trees coming under alignment of Semi Ring Road in Kashmir valley.
Sources say that rates of fruits in Kashmir were to be enhanced. Now keeping into consideration Jammu's farmers, the Horticulture Department has issued an order to Director of Horticulture Jammu who has been asked to make assessments of fresh rates in Jammu region as well.
Details available with Early Times reveal that Department of Horticulture has already 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 last week. It is also learnt that rates of apple have been enhanced from Rs 16 to Rs 50/Kg and Plum from Rs 13 to Rs 60/Kg. The fresh orders in this direction will be issued by the Governor's office next month, said sources.
"We are thankful to Secretary Horticulture and Director Horticulture Kashmir/Jammu for initiating the process of new rates for fruit trees in Jammu/Kashmir region," said Ghulam Qadir, a senior member of Land Owners Welfare Committee.
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 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 department in some areas.
The 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 directed the government to present status of the trees and to undertake fresh assessment within four weeks.
