I need some advice here.
Scenario - A land owner by mistakenly assumed that his land is acquired (since land adjacent to his land was notified) for development authority in 1979 (Preliminary Notification) - 1985 (Final Notification), however he recently (2021) on detailed verification of the Notifications found out that his name was not in the Gazette Notification list. However the authority has taken some portion of the land and formed layout. The owner is currently in possession of the remaining portion of the same land, he has now approached the High Court to consider this pleadings and restore back his land. Does this attract Limitation Act? Will he succeed?
Also in addition to that, I see the bare act it just mentions about what are the rules to be followed if the land is been notified for acquisition. Is there any provision /section where the land owner is not been notified in the Gazette notification but his land is being acquired by the authority?
Please suggest if there is any case laws I can read about it
