'Pay farmer compensation'

Press Trust Of India  |  Gurgaon 

Maruti Suzuki's woes at Manesar are piling up with the Haryana government asking the company to pay Rs235 crore to Haryana State Industries and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) as enhanced compensation to farmers for land acquisition under a Supreme Court order.

HSIIDC, in a notice issued on June 25, warned the company that if it did not deposit the amount within three months, the land allotted for the Manesar plant "shall become liable for resumption and further action would be taken".

According to HSIIDC, the notice was issued as the firm did not respond to an earlier communication in March 2012. Divya Kamal, DGM (estate), HSIIDC, IMT-Manesar, who issued the notice, said a team of top management of the company had already met Chief Minister and HSIIDC's Managing Director over the issue.

When contacted, an MSI spokesperson declined to comment.
