HC upholds decision to quash land acquisation in Noida Extenstion

Bringing some relief to the lakhs of buyers who invested their money in Noida Extension and Greater Noida, the Allahbad High Court on Monday dismissed the review petition filed by farmers and Greater Noida Authority in the land acquisition case.

Farmers had challenged the Allahabad High Court decision of October 21, 2011. And now the court has kept that decision alive that the steps taken at the time of land acquisition were right.The court refused to quash the acquisition of the village land acquired by using the urgency clause. The Allahabad High court in its order passed on October 21, 2010, said, “No clearance has yet been obtained by the Greater Noida authority to draft its master plan-2021. Steps taken for land acquisition, development activities including creation of third-party rights were not in conformity with the NCR Planning Board Act, 1985.” 

After the Allahabad high court rejected the review petition of villagers in Noida Extension, a small section of farmers unhappy with the order went on a rampage targeting projects of several builders. Other farmers were, however, happy that the Allahabad high court had turned down the plea made by the Greater Noida Authority in its review petition to not dole out hiked compensation and developed plots to non-ancestral lands of villagers.

These farmers are greedy and the worth of their land was nothing if GNIDA had not acquired land and made roads, there were no bridges on Hindon river and the only way to reach here was from NH 24,  GNIDA had paid handsome compensation at the time of acquisition. Politicians have made the matter worse. Another Khoda is in making...
