3. NLC India Ltd presented the R&R policy of the company adopted in the state of Tamilnadu.
A copy of the PPT is at Annex-II. The salient points are as under:

 NLCIL is implementing the provisions of National Rehabilitation and Resettlement Policy


2007 The Company acquired 259 sq. Km land in 1956. Assistances covered under NRRP
2007 is as follows:
 One time Rehabilitation grants of 750 days minimum agricultural wages in lieu of
employment, one time financial assistance for cattle shed, Shifting allowance, one time

 Allotment of alternate house site to the affected family whose house has been acquired, to
an extent of 120 sq.m to 250 sq.m in well developed resettlement centres.
 Self Employment training, Entrepreneurship development training at NLCIL Learning and
Development Centre, Exclusive ITI apprenticeship training, Medical lab technician
courses etc. & other suitable training programs in association with reputed NGOs like
Gandhigram University, Anna Malai University for affected persons, so as to enable them
to take on suitable job. After this exclusive training people go for various domestic as well
as international markets for employment. College students who are wards of PAPs are
provided in-plant trainings, assistance for project works at free of cost. Also preference is
given in Technician Apprenticeship Training and Graduate Apprenticeship Training.
 Preference to affected persons in awarding contract works in LA - R&R Department upto a
value of Rs.5 lakh, subject to satisfying other prequalification conditions.

 Over and above the NRRP-2007 provisions, the following assistances are also provided:
 Though the dwellers/encroachers of Govt. lands are not entitled for any compensation,
50% of the value of the house structure in which the encroacher is residing is paid by
NLCIL.
 NLCIL has obtained a special Government Order for directly calling for applications from
the Project Affected Persons for ITI Apprenticeship Training in NLCIL, instead of through
the employment exchange.

 It was informed that the creation of assets like schools, hospitals & other facilities are done by
NLCIL and thereafter handled over to state government for running the same. However, the
maintenance of civil works are being done by NLCIL. On this JS(H) enquired about the
availability of Doctors & Teachers. She also enquired about various State Government
Welfare Scheme like Mid-Day Meal, Amma Canteen etc whether benefits from those
Schemes are reaching to affected persons. JS(H) directed to submit a note on this through Shri
Anurag Kapil, Director, M/o Coal.

 JS(H) directed to work out the cost of resettlement as per Schedule 3 of RFCTLARR Act
2013.

 It was informed that the following R&R benefits are also provided as per the RFCTLARR Act
2013:
 Each Affected family may be provided Rs. 5,00,000 in lieu of employment
or
Annuity policies that shall pay not less than Rs. 2000 per month per family for 20 years with
appropriate indexation to the consumer price Index for Agricultural Labourers.
 Other R&R Benefits of approx Rs. 5 Lacks (for housing, subsistence, transport, cattle
shed, artisan, one time resettlement allowance, cost of alternative site etc) should also
being provided to each family.

 It was informed that with the constant follow-up and persuasion with District Revenue
Officials also with the effective cooperation of the District Administration PAFs were easy to
resettle. Also a good rapport is maintained with the affected villagers before and after
acquisition by continuous engagement & frequent dialogues.

 The major challenge faced by NLCIL in acquiring lands is requesting permanent employment
opportunity in NLCIL. However, the same was not possible in the present scenario. Even
though NLCIL is providing enhanced compensation & other R&R benefits, some of the
project affected families loose the benefits shortly and again seeking employment from
NLCIL. Because of this condition every project affected family insist on permanent
employment opportunity from NLCIL.To overcome this situation, about 40 to 50 % of the
temporary employments arisen from contract agencies are filled up with the PAFS.

 Salvaged materials are allowed to be taken away by the affected families. NLCIL provides
transport arrangement with departmental trucks.

 Locating the Resettlement centres near to the highways and provision of good infrastructure
facilities like roads, water, street lights, schools etc. and maintaining the same. These facilities
were not available in the original villages and the families relocate themselves to these
resettlement centres without any hesitation.

 Transparent and Hassle free procedure to help the villagers to get their benefits without any
trouble.

 JS (H) directed to analyse & submit a note regarding contribution of CSR funds as % of total
R&R cost.

 JS (H) enquired about how to prevent new construction on/near project site once the project is
announced in the public domain. On this, representative of NLCIL informed that after getting
mining approval, a comprehensive survey is done and documented for all the projects which
are to be undertaken in next 5 years.

 Mines/Projects of different Subsidiaries of CIL are situated across 8 States namely Assam,
West Bengal, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh &
Maharashtra. There are variations in State law relating to land acquisition and also variation
in implementation of the R&R policies.

 R&R activities are conducted in all the subsidiaries of CIL except MCL, under CIL R&R
Policy 2012 subject to modifications by Subsidiary Boards, suiting to local conditions,
whereas, MCL follows R&R Policy of Govt. of Odisha.

 In view of the order of Government of India dated 28th August 2015 relating to RFCTLARR
Act 2013 and to incorporate the provisions of the RFCTLARR Act, 2013 as prescribed in
Schedule I, II & III in the present R&R policies of CIL, R&R Policy of CIL 2017 has been
drafted and under active consideration.

area of the land not on the basis of definition of Family. Except MCL all subsidiaries are
providing one employment against 2 acre of land either in Package Concept or Descending
order. MCL provides employment as per R&R Policy of Odisha Govt. This created the
resentment among the people who are having land holding of less than 2 Acres. There upon it
was worked out that such people (collectively having 2 Acre of land) can nominate someone
among them for employment.

 As per R&R Policy of Coal India Limited 2012, all the land losers who are not eligible for
employment shall be entitled to receive monetary compensation in lieu of employment at the
rate of Rs. 5.00,000/- for each acre of land on pro-rata basis with minimum of Rs 50,000.

 Land losers who are offered employment have the option either to opt for employment or to
forego employment and opt for monetary compensation at the rate of Rs. 5,00,000/- for each
acre of land on pro-rata basis with minimum of Rs. 50,000 provided that the employment thus
surrendered shall not be available for offer to any other person and will stand lapsed from the
total sanctioned number of employments.

 A person whose Homestead is acquired, apart from the Compensation for homestead by the
standard valuation method of the L A Act. of the concerned State Govt, a one time lump sum
payment of Rs. 3,00,000/- in lieu of alternate House site, Assistance in designing Shifting
Allowance, compensation for construction of cattle shed, Monetary compensation for
construction of work shed etc. shall also be provided. The compensation shall be paid to
displaced persons only after vacation and demolition of the homestead/ work shed etc.

 Each affected displaced family will get subsistence allowance at the rate of 25 days
(Minimum Agricultural Wage) per month for one year.

 Landless tribals, Tribal dependent on forest produce will be given one time financial
assistance of 500 days of MAW for loss of customary right or usages of forest produce. Loss
of customary rights needs to be authenticated by the district authority.

 The following Remedial Measures for R&R issues across the different States were suggested
in the presentation:
 Regular updation of land records by the State Government
 Publication of details of land to be possessed in Newspapers asking to submit the
ownership documents in time for further authentication/verification by State Government.
 Regular meeting and consultation with land owners for sensitization creating more
awareness.
 Conducting Social Impact Assessment as confidence building measure and framing a
proper R&R scheme.

 Apart from the aforementioned Remedial Measures, the following Way Forward was also
suggested in the presentation:
 Pre CSR activities in surrounding area of the project such as skill development, health and
education etc.
 Use of Technology ,Satellite Image, Drone Image, GIS Based LIS
 Transparency in all the land deals for confidence building in the stakeholders.
 Regular liaison with state authorities.
 Efforts to be made to sustain cultural identity of PAFs during the R&R.
 Post monitoring of the R&R site is essential to ensure an obstruction free implementation.
 Constant support from the respective State governments during possession of land.
