Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - HT Navi Mumbai Live - - NAVIMUMBAI -

The state gov­ern­ment in 1990 had an­nounced the 12.5% scheme and ex­tended it to all pro­jectaf­fected peo­ple (PAP). In this scheme, the PAP are given back de­vel­oped land, which is 12.5% of the land ac­quired from them. The 12.5% scheme be­came fully op­er­a­tional in 1994.

RTI ac­tivist Vikas Parshuram Patil had, on Jan­uary 22, 2012, sub­mit­ted an RTI ap­pli­ca­tion to CIDCO’s Land and Sur­vey depart­ment. He had then asked for de­tails of the 12.5% scheme plots dis­trib­uted in Ulwe. The in­for­ma­tion was not given to him.
