Congress senior leader and Jagtial MLA T Jeevan Reddy has demanded the State government to acquire the land for the proposed irrigation projects by providing compensation to the land losers following the Land Acquisition Act-2013.

            Jeevan Reddy addressed a letter to the Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao in this regard here on Wednesday.

of State governments since 2014. According to Land Acquisition Act 2013, the government has to give compensation to the farmers 1½ more to the market value of the land and after that the government has to give 100% solacium also. Then the government has to pay Rs 6 lakh plus Rs 3 lakh and 100% solecium becomes Rs 9 lakh plus Rs 9 lakh becomes Rs 18 lakh per acre.
