Jaypee Infratech Limited (JIL) has developed Yamuna Expressway. The road is 165 Km long connecting Noida and Agra. The main objective of this highway is to minimize travel time from Delhi to Agra and facilitate faster uninterrupted movement of passengers and freight traffic. The expressway is intended to serve new regional infrastructure such as the proposed Taj International Airport Hub and various commercial, industrial, institutional, amusement and residential projects that are being developed  Thousands of villagers whose land had been acquired for this project gathered in New Delhi to stage protests in August 2010 . Since then they are organizing protest time to time in different places. Farmers are demanding a better compensation for their acquired land by Uttar Pradesh government . Under political pressure, the then government of Uttar Pradesh offered farmers a better compensation. The state government was ready to pay 570 rupees per square feet instead of 436 per square feet earlier.
