Singur Land Act: HC directive to Tata Motors

PTI Kolkata | Updated on June 22, 2011

The Calcutta High Court has refused to hear the ex-parte Tata Motors’ petition challenging the Singur Land Rehabilitation and Development Act, 2011.

Mr Justice Saumitra Pal, while taking up the petition filed by Tata Motors, directed its counsel Mr Samaraditya Pal to serve a notice to the state government, and said the matter would be taken up at 12 noon today.

Mr Samaraditya Pal submitted that he wanted to move the petition ex-parte, but the court refused to entertain his plea.

The Act scrapped the previous Left Front Government’s deal with Tata Motors and provided for return of land to unwilling farmers.

The Bill was passed in the State Assembly on June 14, amid a walkout by the Opposition Left parties, by voice vote along with some amendments brought by the Government.
