Japanese government published their prediction that some areas will remain more radioactive than 20mSv/y even in 10 years, where will still be uninhabitable on 4/22/2012.

They are planning to complete decontamination in places where the radiation level is lower than 50mSv/y by March of 2014. However, they still have not made a plan for the areas where the radiation level is higher than 50mSv/y.

Though it is assumed that some of the evacuated people want to go home even if it takes time, Japanese government is inclined to the idea that spending money on supporting evacuating people is more efficient. It costs significant sum of money to decontaminate and the reliable technology is not established. It would be more efficient to spend the money on evacuating people.
