Land acquisition

This query is : Resolved 

17 February 2017

Our land had been acquired by the government during 1986 (the acquirement is just confined to papers but not psychical possession). They paid very less megar compensation to our grandparents. But the government has not physically acquired and not even deducted the extent of land in our passbooks and we are in peaceful possession of the land. So is there any provision to fight against the government to claim my land as it's not acquired.

It seems the Government has not used the acquired land for the purpose it was acquired even after passage of more than 30 years. Discuss with senior lawyer dealing such cases, regarding provisions to return land in such conditions, show him all related documents and proceed as per his advice.

If the land had been acquired for a public purpose and a compensation amount has been paid and the purpose is not fulfilled or dropped, the government has to return the property.

It cant sell the property to any other persons or it cannot use the same for any other purpose.

In your case, it is understood that the government has not utilised the land for the purpose for more than 30 years which means the project has been dropped.

You file writ.

Consult a local lawyer who has good knowledge over this type of case.
