Govt mulling Act on rehabilitation

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 18 � Assam Government would soon form an expert committee to examine the feasibility of an Act that would ensure proper rehabilitation and adequate compensation to those affected by any Government or private projects in the State.

Speaking at a press conference today, Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi informed that the idea is to guarantee the safety and security of the people affected by big projects.

�The Act would have the provision of making the people or authorities involved in the projects accountable for any damage caused by their projects. They would not be allowed to go scot-free by dint of the No Objection Certificates issued to their projects by the Pollution Control Board and other departments concerned,� the Chief Minister pointed out.

�Be it any private or public projects under the State or Central Government, each one of them will be covered by the Act,� Gogoi stated.

�However, it would also be ensured that the Act is not misused by the beneficiaries,� he added.
