Panchsheel Yojna is a housing scheme launched by Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) in 2011. The completion of the project was scheduled in 2014 but LDA failed to give the possession to the allottees in time. The main reason for the delay was that farmers in the region denied to give away their land for the compensation offered. Farmers not only protested against the housing scheme but also stopped work, damaged construction machines whenever LDA tried to initiate the construction. They were demanding better compensation along with a house for each farm family. After failing to deliver the plots LDA offered allottees to either take plots in a different location or take the refund of their money along with the interest rate of 12%. But, allottees denied both the options. In 2016, LDA resolved the issue with the farmers and construction started. But the slow speed of construction infuriated the allottees leading to them filing several complaints. LDA has not yet been able to deliver the plots.
