My lands have been acquired under National Highways act 1956. For enhanced compensation, NH Act refers Arbitration act 1996, for determination of enhanced compensation. Now the Arbitrator (Arbitrator appointed by the Central Govt) has rejected the petition for enhancement. Against the Arbitration award, the land losers can approach the Civil court under CPC. Now my doubt is whether the District Judge can or the District Judge has the power to enhance the compensation or he should remand back the matter to the Arbitrator only?
