PATNA: In what could be a ray of hope for at least 159 displaced Mahadalit families of Panapur diara at Danapur, the Patna high court recently asked the disaster management department special secretary and Patna DM to jointly convene a meeting of all stakeholders and approach the families for their rehabilitation after purchasing four-decimal land for each of them.

These families have been living in temporary sheds for more than eight years in inhuman condition after their houses and agricultural land were swallowed by the Ganga in July 2013.

A high-level committee had decided on February 20, 2019 that each of the 159 families should be given four-decimal land for rehabilitation. The land has to be purchased by the revenue and land reforms department.

A writ petition in nature of PIL was filed in the high court by one Ranjeet Ram and Urmila Devi in December last year, who urged the court to direct the authorities concerned to rehabilitate the 159 affected families. The matter was taken up for hearing by the division bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Karol and Justice S Kumar on Monday. However, the court’s order came into public domain on Thursday.

The court has directed the DMD principal secretary to file a report within four weeks on the matter. It fixed November 15 as the next date of hearing in the matter.

As per the PIL, the families were to be rehabilitated at Hathiyakant village and even Rs 12.72 crore was released following a revenue and land reforms department resolution on December 31, 2014. However, the families are yet to be rehabilitated.
