Smart City project stumbles upon plethora of court cases, AMC , commissioner appeal for co-operation

By Our Correspondent

Agartala February 13 ,2020 : Work on   Agartala Smart City Project, one of the dream projects of Tripura government is faltering because of  large number of  court cases filed by beneficiaries of illegal encroachment on municipal land by a section of city's citizenry. As always, settlement of the cases is taking time, stalling progress of the work on project. Sources in Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC) said that at the moment works worth Rs 250 crores is on in the smart city project but court cases continue to retard the progress of the work. 

Sources in AMC said that many people are in possession of illegally encroached government land in the city and a section of them have obtained even mutation by means of manipulation. "Whenever served notice to vacate the land the encroachers file court cases and work gets stuck until judicial verdict is available ; this is the root of the problem because cases of civil nature take inordinately long to be disposed of" said a senior official of AMC. He added that many litigants have been requested to settle the issue through discussion in stead of moving court but there is no response. The AMC authority including the civic body's Commissioner (administration) Shailesh Yadav  have appealed to the dwellers of Agartala town and extended Municipal areas to extend co-operation to the smart city project and to desist from moving court in stead  of having issues settled through discussion in the interest of Agartala city's development
