THE 12.5% SCHEME
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.
