In 1992, Rajasthan government had acquired about 538 bigha land from farmers in Bhankrota, Keshavpura and Asarpura villages in Jaipur to build a truck terminal and a settlement called Transport Nagar. Jaipur Development Authority had paid compensation to the affected families. But later, the government shifted the truck terminal to a different location on Sikar road. When farmers learned about it, some families refused to take compensation and give away their land. The government deposited their compensation amount in the high court. Out of 538 bigha land, 150 bigha or 25 hectares remained to be acquired. Until 2013, no government scheme was launched on the acquired land. In 2013, the government began the process of acquiring the remaining 25 hectares of land for a township project. Residents who live on that piece of land moved court and got a stay against the acquisition. They say the compensation provided to them in 1992 means nothing given the current land rates, and since township is a new project they should be given better compensation and a proper rehabilitation.
