Governor writes to Defence Minister for enhancing compensation for Field Firing Ranges in J&K

JAMMU, FEBRUARY 07: Governor N.N. Vohra has addressed Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar; and requested him to enhance the compensation rates payable to persons in J&K who are affected by Field Firing and Artillery Practices.

The Governor pointed out that the land owners have been complaining about the poor rates of compensation and this also raises additional problems when the existing Field Firing Ranges have to be re-notified, as for example the Hiranagar Field Firing Range. The Governor has pointed out that the rates of compensation were fixed 28 years ago.
