Udupi: Due to the persisting inclement weather, the district has incurred damages worth Rs 545 crore. Four houses have been completely destroyed. Where is the necessity of constructing new houses? How many areca nut, coconut trees have been damaged? Conduct a re-survey in this connection, directed minister Kota Srinivas Poojary, speaking at the meeting held in connection to the natural disaster at DC office on Thursday.

There is report that 675 houses have been partially damaged. Since it is difficult to reside in houses which have suffered cracks and whose roof has been blown away, a re-survey is required. As per the government’s guidelines, Rs 5 lakh compensation for completely damaged houses can be provided only after a report has been submitted in this regard, he informed.

A compensation of only Rs 18,000 per hectare of damaged agricultural land is not enough. During land acquisition a coconut tree is given a compensation of Rs 13,000 while an areca nut tree is compensated for Rs 3,000 and similarly, a re-survey based on trees has been started in DK district and needs to be conducted in Udupi as well.
