Allahabad, Oct 21: In yet another set back to the Uttar Pradesh Government, the Allahabad High Court has quashed the Noida Land acquisition. Based on a petition filed by the farmers, the ruling will now ensure that the farmers will get back their lands. The acquisition has been quashed for villages in Deola, Shahberi and Asadallapur.

Disposing all other petitions in regard to the case, the court has ordered that the farmers will be given 10 per cent of developed land and an enhanced compensation of 64 per cent. The court has also ordered that those farmers who have already claimed compensation, can return the same and claim back their land. 

The UP Chief Secretary will have to appoint officers to probe the matter further according to directives by the court.

The court has also stated that no new constructions will be allowed till the 2021 master plan comes into effect.

As many as 491 petitions were filed by farmers against the land acquisition by the government in Noida and Greter Noida. They had alleged that the govt had evoked the urgency clause that forced them to part with their land without receiving adequate compensation.
