The Jaipur Development Authority's biggest housing scheme at Ninder village seems to have fallen flat as the government authorities are facing problems in acquiring land. The proposed scheme will have 10,000 houses. In December 2010, Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) had proposed this scheme on 1,100 bighas of land in Ninder village on Sikar Road. Ninder village is just 20 km away from Ajmeri Gate area in Jaipur. As much as 900 bighas needs to be acquired from the private land owners. The government has allotted around 200 bighas for the scheme. JDA is finding it difficult to acquire land because many land owners have denied to give away their land. The land owners have intensified their protest and carried out a torch march. In October 2017, about 50 farmers Launched 'Zameen Samadhi Satyagraha' demanding compensation as per the Land Acquisition Act, 2013. A similar protest was held again in February 2020 demanding fair compensation. In December 2020, JDA officials started a fresh round of talks with farmers on matters pertaining to land acquisition.
