The local court hearing the plea of the farmers has extended the stay granted earlier up to January 25 2022 in the Halga Macche bypass case.
The farmers who had petitioned the local civil court a month back then were given the interim benefit of the stay on any kind of work on the Halga Macche bypass.
The government acquired 134 acres for a 9.5-km bypass road between Halaga and Mache. A part of the land acquired for the work is said to be fertile, which has enraged a section of the affected farmers.
Many farmers have denied part with their fertile land and protested by sitting on their land.
A total of 27 crores is the compensation paid to 825 persons.
About 130 acres of land will have to be acquired for the 9-10 km stretch which will pass through Halga, Zadshahpur, Madhavpaur, Old Belagavi, Vadgaon, Shahpur, Mache.
The Farmer’s advocate has raised technical points saying the NHAI can’t build this bypass and nor have they redefined the Zero point as per law. The NHAI has failed to produce any documents in this regard in court.
