  • The High Court of Allahabad held thatLARRA [Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Authority] is not a civil court under Section 24(1)(a) of CPC, to be  subordinate to the High Court.
  • Thus High Court cannot transfer a case pending before LARRA to another court.
  • LARRA is an authority that was established under Section 51 of  the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013.
  • The bench consisting of  Justice J.J. Munir noted that LARRA is an authority and may be considered as a Tribunal subordinate to the High Court under Article 227 of the Indian Constitution but not under CPC.
  • The court read as follows, “The LARRA, described under the Act of 2013 as an "Authority", may be regarded as a Tribunal subordinate to this Court for the purpose of superintendence under Article 227 of the Constitution, but not a Court subordinate to this Court under the Code,"
  • The observation was made when a case related to Transfer Application was seeking transfer from LARRA to any other competent court within jurisdiction due to absence of presiding officer at the Pragyaraj LARRA.
