Evacuees will be paid adequate compensation, says Krishnaiah

Correspondent

‘Uttara Kannada has lost land for many major projects in the past'


The idea of mediation is there from centuries

Mediation has helped solvie 8,000 cases




Making way for peace:A workshop on mediation in Karwar on Saturday.

Karwar: Uttara Kannada district has lost maximum land for different development projects in Karnataka and efforts will be made to get more compensation for the evacuees of such projects, said Uttara Kannada Deputy Commissioner B.N. Krishnaiah. He was addressing the mediation programme for advocates and workshop on mediation for mediators which was jointly arranged by the district judiciary and Uttara Kannada District Bar Association and the mediation centre Bangalore, on Saturday, in Karwar.

Mr. Krishnaiah said the people of Uttara Kannada had lost their land for projects like Seabird, Kaiga Nuclear Power Station and Kodasalli dam. They were yet to receive compensation and were entangled in court cases.

The officials of the Seabird project had brought the issue of compensation to the notice of the Chief Secretary of the Department of Defence and mediation would be held once the Department of Defence replies to the letter.

He said the district court could have solved the problem by holding a meeting among the naval officials, district administration and the evacuees.

The idea of the mediation had been in force since centuries all over the world. In rural areas, the disputes were solved through the talks, said Mr. Krishnaiah.

B.M. Angadi, district sessions judge, said at a time when the number of cases were on the rise in courts such cases could be solved through negotiation.

The idea of mediation had begun about five years ago in Bangalore and with the help of this more than 8,000 cases were solved. Sixteen trained mediators were from Uttara Kannada district and more were getting trained.

Responsibility

The advocates should make use of this and act as socially responsible persons, he said. Siddalinga Prabhu, senior judge, called for the mediation of the Deputy Commissioner to solve the Seabird compensation problem.

The interest had been added to the compensation amount and the Navy officials should take note of it.

The officials in Maharashtra were evolving a plan to save such interest.

The officials in the State should think about it, he said.

Pradeep Naik, senior advocate, said if the Supreme Court upholds the judgment of the High Court in connection with the compensation then the compensation problem would be solved, he said.

Master trainers Prasad Subbanna and Sheela Krishna of Bangalore trained 24 advocates about the mediation.

Senior judges P.S. Balikayi, B. Narayanappa, Shrinivas Budrapur, Sarvoday Shettigar and advocates R. Hegde Gali were present.
