High Court directive to Deoli farmers

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court has directed a group of farmers of Deoli village in South Delhi, whose land the Delhi Government had acquired 20 years ago, to make representations to the South District Collector about non-payment of compensation amounts for the plots of land acquired.

A Division Bench of the Court comprising Justice T. S. Thakur and Justice B. D. Ahmed issued the directions on a bunch of petitions through Delhi High Court lawyer Surat Singh. The farmers had sought directions to the Collector to release the compensation amounts because the competent officer had not released the same despite repeated requests.

Dr. Singh submitted that since the land had been acquired as well as taken into possession, there was no justification for non-payment of the amounts due to the farmers.

However, counsel for the Delhi Government, Geeta Luthra, raised certain factual objections to the farmers' plea that the petitions were silent on the total area of the land acquired.
