The Prime Minister's Office (PMO) recently asked the ministries and departments concerned to ensure proper compensation to the affected people of Matarbari coal-fired power plant, officials said.

The directive came as the local people alleged that they were being paid compensation based on a land price fixed several years back.

Officials said principal secretary to the PMO Abul Kalam Azad early this month visited the site for Matarbari coal-fired power plant where the local people raised various allegations including lower payment as compensation and non-rehabilitation.
