Madras HC declares land acquisition by Tamil Nadu government as illegal
06/07/2019 , by , in News/Views

The Madras High Court has declared as “illegal” an amendment made by the Tamil Nadu government to the Centre’s Land Acquisition Act, exempting three state legislations from its purview.

It also made it clear that all land acquisitions made by the state government under the three state legislations on or after September 27, 2013, were “illegal.”

A division bench of Justices S Manikumar and Subramonium Prasad, which set aside the amendment on Wednesday, however, held that the lands, which had been acquired and already put to use for the purpose for which they had been acquired before September 2013, should not be disturbed.
