Singur land issue: HC refuses to pass interim injunction


The Calcutta High Court has refused to pass an interim order restraining the West Bengal govt from distributing to farmers in Singur the land acquired earlier to set up Tata'a car manufacturing unit.


On Tata Motor's plea that an interim injunction be passed to restrain distribution of the land from Tuesday, Justice Saumitra Pal said in that case the company's original petition challenging the Singur Land Rehabilitation and Development Act, 2011 would become infructuous.


Justice Pal observed that since the court found from the petition that no specific statement has been made that land distribution would start on Tuesday; no interim order was being passed.


Tata Motor's counsel Samaraditya Pal moved an ex-parte petition seeking stay on distribution of land expressing apprehension that it would be distributed within a day or two.


Appearing for the West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation, senior counsel Saktinath Mukherjee opposed the prayer claiming that it could not be done when the opposite party was present in the court and copies would have to be served to them.
