The highest land donor Nabam Taring who is also the Gaon Burah, said that we are living here from several generation and the land is belong to Nyishi Community , not government .
District administration has fixed the land rate of Rs. 1014 per Sqm but now government has try to reduce the compensation rate from Rs 1014 Per Sqmtrs to Rs 253.50 per sqrm by claiming the proposed land is government land. And this kinds of report is hurting the land affected people and their family members.
