“There are many court cases that we have to resolve in this regard. Once, we will get a comprehensive list of oustees, I will send it to chief administrator’s office for approval. Our aim is resolve the issue at the earliest,” Khare said.

The Punjab and Haryana Court had merged all the cases of oustees filed in last five to six years in September 2017.

A senior Huda official said that Northern Peripheral Road (NPR), Southern Peripheral Road (SPR) and Connecting Peripheral Roads (CPR), and several other sector roads, are among projects which are mired in litigations, as landowners and oustees moved court demanding adequate compensation.
