Q.) Land needed for mining, dams, and other large-scale projects is acquired mostly from Adivasis, hill
dwellers, and rural communities. The displaced persons are paid monetary compensation as per the legal
provisions. However, the payment is often tardy. In any case, it cannot sustain the displaced families for long.
These people do not possess marketable skills to engage in some other accusation. They end up as low paid migrant labourers.

Moreover, their development goes to industries, industrialists and urban communities
whereas the costs are passed on to these poor helpless people. This unjust distribution of costs and benefits is
unethical. Suppose you have been entrusted with the task of drafting a better compensation-cum-rehabilitation policy for such displaced persons, how would you approach the problem and what would be the main elements of your suggested policy?
