AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat High Court (HC) on Thursday ordered to entirely quash a land acquisition notification issued by the competent authority for the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India Limited (DFCCIL) from Pansar village near Kalol in Mehsana to Sanand in Ahmedabad.

The notification was issued to acquire agriculture land of 26 villages while changing the alignment of the railway corridor on the route under the provisions of the Railways Act. However, it was challenged by the farmers through a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) in 2012. The PIL was partly allowed by HC in February this year with a direction to the competent authority to consider objections of the farmers afresh.

The petitioner farmers’ lawyer, Vikram Thakor, said that they had challenged this judgment in a review petition while demanding that their PIL should be entirely allowed and that the entire land acquisition notification should be quashed. “Today, the review petition has been allowed and the court has directed the competent authority not to consider objections of the farmers afresh as the acquisition notification itself has been quashed completely.” ENS
