KAKINADA: Farmers of Kakinada Special Economic Zone (KSEZ) have succeeded against all odds with the state government finally deciding to return certain extents of lands back to the farmers.The nearly one-and-a-half decades' struggle of farmers under KSEZ fructified with the state cabinet on Tuesday deciding to return around 2,180 acres of land in the zone to farmers who have refused to take any compensation.

If small extents of 5-10 acres of land adjacent to KSEZ are there, these farmers will be given the same extent of land at another place the 'land-for-land'' policy.
