The Minister was replying to a question raised by Mr. Firdous Ahmad Tak in the upper house of the legislature today. The Minister further informed the House that in 2009 the Deputy Commissioner Kishtawar had identified 75 kanals and 1 Marla of land at village Lanyal in Kishtawar for the construction of Sports stadium there.
He said though the notification has been issued, Rs 12 crore is required as land compensation for the same.
Mr. Ansari said that as per the standing policy, stadia are developed where ever free of cost land is available as the land compensation is not covered in the scheme.
