Land Acquisition : Setback for farmers as SC upholds in Noida Extension

NewDelhi/Nagpur: In a setback for farmers, the Supreme Court on Thursday quashed their plea while upholding land acquisitions in Noida Extension by the Greater Noida Authority between 2006 and 2009. The apex court has overturned Allahabad High Court order which had scrapped acquisitions.

The order came as a relief for flat owners and builders else buildings would have been demolished.

Farmers had wanted their land back while Greater Noida authority was unwilling to give the developed land.

A lawyer said, “The Supreme Court dismissed all petitions land acquisition. Farmers wanted some more compensation but that has not been accepted by the Supreme Court. This verdict will impact 65 villages of Noida and Greater Noida.”
