(PLO)- The story of relocating and liberating thousands of households to implement projects in Ho Chi Minh City here will not face so many obstacles as before.
Ho Chi Minh City is rushing to prepare for the implementation of key and urgent projects such as Ring Road 3, relocation of houses on and along canals, new construction of old apartments… so there will be tens of thousands of households having to leaving their residence to resettle in a new place, handing over the site to the State for project implementation.
For people, it can be said that having to leave a place that has been attached to family memories, neighbors for many years, even generations is something no one wants. Not to mention that moving to a new place will inevitably disturb people’s activities, lifestyles, studies, livelihoods, etc.
However, for the sake of the national interest, the public interest, even in many cases it is to improve the lives and accommodation of the people themselves (moving from temporary residences, which do not guarantee living conditions). on and along the canals to get to a more spacious, civilized, clean and beautiful place to live), people will have to cooperate with the State for the common good.
When the State recovers land, it always aims to harmonize the interests of people, businesses and the State. Therefore, most of the policies on compensation, support, and resettlement when land is recovered are strictly implemented. The State also wants people to have a better life after leaving the old place.
This was reflected in Resolution 19/2012 of the 11th Party Central Committee. However, many contents of CLC in Resolution 19 have not been concretized in the Land Law and related laws, so it cannot be implemented in practice.
According to the Land Law 1993 and 2003, the State issues a decision on land acquisition according to the project, then formulates, appraises and approves the resettlement plan, then issues a decision on settlement of the resettlement claim to each person whose land is recovered.
However, from the 2013 Land Law up to now, land acquisition must be carried out in parallel with the CRC.
Specifically, in one day, four related decisions on CLC must be issued, including: Decision on land recovery of each individual; decide to approve the land price to calculate the SET of the project; decision approving the plan of resettlement land acquisition for each person whose land is recovered; decide on the project’s plan to support training, job change and job creation.
According to Resolution 18 that has just been issued by the central government, the work of the CLC is placed on the first stage and “must be one step ahead”. After completing the resettlement process (especially the resettlement arrangement for people is completed first), the land will be acquired. The resolution also determines: “There must be specific regulations on resettlement so that after land is recovered, the people whose land is recovered must have a place to live, ensuring a life equal to or better than the old one. Effectively implement vocational training, create jobs, reorganize production, and stabilize life for people whose land is recovered. This shows that the State is increasingly interested in the legitimate rights and interests of land users. If the people are safe, everything will be done.
Looking back on the implementation process of projects for a long time, HCMC has noticed and also designed and proposed ways to do it, but it has not been approved by the central government. Therefore, this time, the Central Committee issued Resolution 18 to determine the direction to remove obstacles in terms of institutions. The resolution process will facilitate land acquisition, resettlement and site clearance for project implementation.
It is hoped that the contents of the resolution will be clearly specified in the law to serve as a basis for the most favorable implementation by localities, avoiding the case where each place does the same thing. Thus, the story of relocating and releasing thousands of households to implement projects in Ho Chi Minh City here will not face so many obstacles as before. And the people whose land is acquired are not disadvantaged when they accept the disturbance of life for the common development of the city.
