Allahabad: Uttar Pradesh government has been fined for Rs 1 crore for violating the orders passed by the Allahabad High Court regarding the acquisition of a piece of land in Ghaziabad district, whose physical possession is still pending even after four decades.

What the court said?

  • The order came on a petition filed by Surendra and others.
  • The order was passed yesterday by a division bench comprised of justices Tarun Agarwala and Vipin Sinha.
  • Court ordered the state government to deposit Rs 1 crore before the Registrar General of the Court by September 15, which is the next date of hearing.
  • Court also observed that state had not acted upon the UP State Industrial Development Corporation, the owner of land, who acquired it for no use.
  • In such case, state government should have exempted the land from acquisition.

What is the case?

  • A piece of land in Loni in Ghaziabad was acquired in the year 1973.
  • Neither the physical possession of the land has been taken till date, nor was any compensation paid to those affected.
