India - Mumbai Urban Transport Project : disposition of additional claim to the panel related to MUTP (Inglês)

On May 15, 2006 the Panel received a letter from the Powai Merchant's Social & Welfare Association (the Association), representing 218 private and commercial land owners who have shops in Adi Shankaracharya Marg, IIT Market, Powai, Mumbai. The complainants assert that under the Mumbai Urban Transport Project (MUTP) they have been incorrectly treated as slum dwellers and, as a result, will be adversely affected by the Project. They claim that the Bank has failed to ensure that they are treated as private land owners and compensated appropriately. The Panel's MUTP Investigation Report addresses the issue of private land owners several times and includes a section on Private Ownership of Land and Shops at the Old Locations (pp. 79-83). In its report, the Panel noted several instances in which affected persons claimed to have private ownership of their land and their structures. This report provides that the Panel shall not hear requests related to a particular matter or matters over which the Panel has already made its recommendation upon having received a prior request, unless justified by new evidence or circumstances not known at the time of the prior request. After a careful review of the additional claim, the Panel believes that it should not be registered as a request at this time. In the Panel's view, the claims that the Association raises regarding compensation for private property have been considered in the Panel's MUTP Investigation Report and covered to some extent in Management's Response to the Panel's Report and its note dated July 27,2006. Importantly, Management is actively engaged in addressing their concerns at this time.
