Resettlement & Rehabilitation Action plan

Large scale development projects involve huge land acquisition and thus forceful displacement of people from their land. Resettlement & Rehabilitation Plan (R & R Plan) helps to systematize the land acquisition process so as to achieve the satisfaction of the land owners and aids effective execution/development of the project with 100% social acceptability.

This reduces the social risks associated with the project which may come up during the design and execution stage and may incur huge cost for managing those social issues. Preparation of R & R Plan is mandatory for all the projects involving land acquisition as per the R&R Act, 2013
