SilverLine survey proceedings
Thiruvananthapuram: The K-Rail will speed up the Social Impact Study of the SilverLine semi high-speed rail corridor as the revenue department has approved its recommendation to use GPS technology for the survey.
Geo-tagging, stone laying in the boundaries and the properties are the tasks for the survey team. The GPS system will be used in places where protests happened. Geo-tagging will have the preference of the surveyors. But this requires more equipment and trained persons. This will be ensured in the coming days. However, if the landowner does not object, the surveyors will lay stones. Laying stones is politically important for the government as the opposition claimed the latest move as a victory of the protestors. Police will continue to help the surveyors.
K-Rail claims that they are processing the office work and the survey is not halted.
Once the study is over, the compensation can be calculated. The K-Rail aims to avoid the loss due to delay in the process by speeding up the process from now onwards.
