Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) is planning to develop a residential area on HardoiSitapur bypass named Prabandh Nagar. Spread across 2500 acres, the project includes 1500 acres of residential area and 1000 acres of a gigantic theme park. The project is stuck for the past 10 years because farmers are denying to give away their land. When Lucknow Development Authority offered the circle rate to acquire the land for the project, farmers of the region protested against the move and asked for a compensation four times higher than the circle rate. Due to the compensation row, the LDA could not make any progress. There is a status quo in the matter. Recently, the LDA administration was reported saying that the authority is going to use the process of land pooling to convince the farmers. Landpooling implies that LDA will develop land, provide facilities like sewerage, drainage, roads etc and then give 50% of it to the farmer/landlord for his use and keep half for developing the project.
