Mamata Banerjee wins Singur Land act over the Tatas

Mamata Banerjee
Kolkata, Sept 28: The Calcutta High Court on Wednesday, Sept 28 took a you-turn by favouring CM Mamata Banerjee and upheld the Singur Land Rehabilitation Act as constitutional and valid. The Court rejected the petition of the Tatas that challenged the constitutional validity of the Singur Land Act.

The High Court justice IP Mukherjee directed Tata Motors to remove all its articles within two months. The Tatas can apply for compensation before the Hooghly district judge within six months.

The act was introduced in June by Mamata Banerjee after she became West Bengal chief minister. It allowed her government to cancel a 99-year-lease signed with Ratan Tata for nearly 1000 acres for his Nano factory.

The deal was signed by the Left which lost to Banerjee in the state elections in May this year. Ratan Tata had challenged the Singur Act. He is expected to appeal against today's order in the Supreme Court.
