Installation of 220 kw electric tower


While Govt is installing Electrical Towers, I have read in Telegraph Act 1885 that compensation should be given to the land owner. If Land owner doesn't agree for the compensation, want to check if Contractors/Officers can install the tower with DC order with protection or discussion on compensation has to happen with District Magistrate before Tower is installed?

Can Land owner go for seeking Stay to install tower in Civil court till right compensation is given?

Removing roadblocks in reaching electricity to every village, the Supreme Court has ruled that no prior consent of landowners was required to lay overhead power transmission lines and erect towers to support these lines.
