HC Strikes Down GO 123 Land Acquisition Bill

The Hyderabad High Court on Thursday passed an order preventing the government from acquiring lands under the revised GO 123 for irrigation projects.
Hyderabad | 5th January 2017
In yet another blow to the TRS government's irrigation projects in Telangana, the Hyderabad High Court on Thursday passed an order preventing it from acquiring lands for the same under the revised GO 123.

The High Court ruled that the State government could acquire the lands under the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013.

The division bench headed by Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan passed the orders on a batch of petitions filed by farmers affected by projects like Mallanna Sagar and others. They alleged that the State was forcibly acquiring lands from them under GO 123 when there was already a Central legislation for land acquisition.

The government, however, denied that it was forcibly acquiring lands and informed the court that it was taking lands only from those who were consenting. The government also argued that it was paying more compensation than under the 2013 act. But the HC overruled the counter and favoured the farmers' concerns, passing the order.
