To serve socioeconomic development projects in the area, Hanoi city has reclaimed land from residents and transferred it to investors for implementation.

Some localities merged into Hanoi from Vinh Phuc and Ha Tay provinces have a policy of allocating service land to households affected by agricultural land reclamation to support the stability of their lives and facilitate the implementation of site clearance.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Hanoi said that the total demand for service land to be allocated to households and individuals in the city is 360.52 hectares, involving 55,580 households. Up to now, after encountering difficulties and issues with mechanisms and policies for decades, Hanoi has only allocated service land to 36,557 households, with an area of ​​248.33 hectares. The number of households yet to receive service land is 19,023, accounting for an area of ​​112.19 hectares, mainly in Ha Dong, Me Linh, Thanh Oai, Quoc Oai, Hoai Duc, and Thanh Tri districts. Me Linh district has the largest area of ​​24.4 hectares, with 5,705 cases.

To overcome obstacles in land policies, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Hanoi proposed to the People’s Committee of the city to report to the Prime Minister and consider applying special mechanisms to settle service land issues in order to ensure fairness between households affected by agricultural land reclamation (at the same time and for the same project) and according to the commitments of each locality and specific projects during different periods. Me Linh district, in particular, has been approved by the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to support the allocation of service land to households and individuals with agricultural land in the district in accordance with Government Decree 64 of 1993.

To expedite the progress of service land allocation projects in other localities, the Department of Natural Resources and Environment proposed that the Chairmen of the People’s Committees of districts, towns, and townships urgently develop plans for service land allocation, report and unify directives for implementation, ensuring the basic completion of service land allocation by 2024.

Localities that have completed technical infrastructure are requested to promptly allocate service land to households and individuals. Based on general planning, zoning planning, detailed planning, or new rural planning, a review and unified proposal for service land locations should be carried out in coordination with the Department of Planning and Architecture, and the report should be approved by the People’s Committee of the city as prescribed.

According to the guidance of Deputy Chairman of the People’s Committee of Hanoi Nguyen Trong Dong, the People’s Committee of Me Linh district and the relevant departments are inspecting and reviewing each specific case to ensure the accuracy of information and data, and carrying out the allocation of service land to households and individuals with agricultural land affected, ensuring the legitimate interests of the state, people, and enterprises. In particular, it is necessary to ensure the correct targets, transparency, and fairness for households with similar cases of agricultural land reclamation as in Vinh Phuc province, avoiding complaints, lawsuits, and losses to the state budget.

Based on the actual situation in Me Linh district, after nearly 20 years of difficulties in allocating service land to residents affected by agricultural land reclamation, now, right after being relieved of obstacles by central ministries and Hanoi city, the district has mobilized the entire political system with the highest sense of responsibility to accelerate the progress of service land allocation, helping residents stabilize their lives as soon as possible.

The Chairman of the People’s Committee of Me Linh district, Hoang Anh Tuan, said that when it was still part of Vinh Phuc province (before 2008), the district reclaimed over 2,000 hectares of agricultural land from households to implement socioeconomic development projects, with compensation prices and land clearance support ranging from 12-18 million dong per sao (equivalent to 360 square meters).

The number of households expected to be allocated service land is 6,420, with a total land area to be returned to households of 28.2 hectares. These are the households that were subject to the reclamation of over 30% of agricultural land in accordance with Government Decree 64/CP dated September 27, 1993. During the 2004-2008 period, the district allocated service land to 460 households in Quang Minh town and 255 households in Dai Thinh commune with an area of 3.8 hectares. Currently, there are still 5,705 households that have not received land allocation, with an area of 24.4 hectares.

Recognizing the allocation of service land to residents as one of the key tasks to protect the legitimate interests of people, with the spirit of “resolving obstacles whenever they arise, and solving difficulties at the level where they occur,” Me Linh district has been actively working with the Department of Natural Resources and Environment of Vinh Phuc province and Hanoi city to find solutions to the service land issue. In addition, the district has worked with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment to resolve difficulties, allocate service land to the remaining 5,705 households.

Immediately after receiving the document approving the allocation of service land from the competent authorities, on August 11, 2023, the Party Committee of Me Linh district issued Document No. 15-DA/HU regarding the “Leadership and guidance on the allocation of service land to households and individuals” and organized a conference to thoroughly discuss the plan at the commune and town levels.

The Party Committee of Me Linh district instructed the establishment of the Steering Committee for the allocation of service land at all levels, focusing on comprehensive guidance for the allocation of service land to the people. The district established an Appraisal Council and a Task Force for implementation at all three levels to disseminate, review, and compile statistics on cases of allocated service land, coordinate the construction of service land infrastructure, and develop allocation plans. The district also ensured the procedure for granting land use rights certificates to households and individuals who received land allocations, ensuring democracy, objectivity, fairness, transparency, and compliance with regulations.

The leaders of Me Linh district stated that the district is reviewing and preparing to develop 12 technical infrastructure projects for service land areas, divided into 3 groups. At the same time, the district assigned specialized departments and agencies to coordinate with the People’s Committee of communes and towns to review planning, propose the implementation of 17 projects, with a total investment of about 940 billion dong. Specifically, in Tien Phong commune, the demand for service land is over 6.8 hectares; Quang Minh town 6.8 hectares; Chi Dong town 3.7 hectares; Van Khe commune 2.6 hectares; Trang Viet commune about 1.5 hectares…/.
