Public Works Department and Nagar Nigam Raipur have made plans to widen the roads of the Raipur city to smoothen the traffic across the city. Under this plan, many overbridges are getting widened and new roads are developed for which Nagar Nigam and PWD has started the land acquisition; where mostly the houses of the urban poor and many informal working spaces are being demolished for the road widening project. Under this project, 44 houses coming on way to Amanaka overbridge widening were demolished with only 24 hours notice given to the residents of these houses before demolition.The residents expressed their resent over the decision as they were not given enough time to collect their belongings and alternative arrangements for housing were also not made by the Government and have demanded compensation for the loss of housing. Over which Nagar Nigam and PWD has cleared that these houses were made on government land and were illegal housing so no compensation can be given. The case is still under investigation and no decision has been taken yet.
