CIDCO claims breakthrough, farmers not convinced

After ten years of delays and uncertainties, the state government is apparently heading towards a breakthrough in the Navi Mumbai Airport project, with project-affected persons (PAPs) likely to accept the compensation package of 22.5 percent of developed land.

After a meeting between CIDCO brass, PAPs and political representatives Friday, the stalemate over the compensation package might end in a final meeting Monday. CIDCO joint commissioner V Radha said the talks were "positive".

However, PAPs say there is no breakthrough in sight. R C Gharat of Navi Mumbai International Airport Sangharsh Samiti said farmers would not settle for anything below 35 percent of developed land.
