Greater Noida: Taking into consideration the delay in disbursal of the bunch of cases filed in connection with land acquisition in Noida Extension, the Allahabad High Court has decided to conduct hearing over the petitions of the farmers on a day-to-day basis from Tuesday.

So far, the court has reserved its order after hearing pleas of two dozen villages, including the petition of Patwari village.

On Tuesday, the court would start hearing the petitions of other villages. It is expected that the hearing of all the villages would be over by the end of September.

In this regard, the officials of the authority left for Allahabad on Monday evening. In order to make their point, the farmers, builders and investors have also left for Allahabad.

It is noteworthy that 495 petitions have been filed in the Allahabad High Court by the farmers of the 65 villages of the Noida, Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway against land acquisition.

A higher bench of the Allahabad High Court has started hearing the cases from September 12.

Farmers meet CEO   

Farmers of Patwari, Bisrakh, Haitabpur and Eteda village met the CEO of the Greater Noida Development Authority, Rama Raman on Monday.

The farmers said that they are ready to withdraw their plea on the condition that the authority should give it in written that it would return back their abadi land. The Authority is seriously considering the demand of farmers.

Many lenders of land

While on one hand, the farmers are fighting against land acquisition in the high court, there is no scarcity of farmers who are ready to give their land to the Authority.

In last six months, more than one thousand farmers have registered their land with the Authority. At least 500 farmers’ application is still pending on which the Authority would decide in next 10-15 days.

The state government has asked the farmers to raise their objections over regularisation of abadi land in Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway, before giving nod to the move. The farmers, if having any objections, can give it in writing.

It is believed that regularisation of the abadi land would be implemented next week.
