Allahabad High Court imposed a fine of Rs 1 Crore on UP government
03 September 2016 Current Affairs: The Uttar Pradesh government landed in trouble as the Allahabad High Court penalised it with a fine of Rs 1 Crore. The fine was imposed following the land acquisition matter of Loni, Ghaziabad. The Allahabad High Court ordered the Uttar Pradesh government to deposit the fine in the Court before September 15, 2016. Also, the next date of hearing is the same as the deadline.

Justice Tarun Agarwala and Justice Vipin Sinha headed the bench which passed the order of penalty while hearing a petition filed some residents of Loni, Ghaziabad. 

About 105 acres of land of Noor Nagar and Loni, Ghaziabad was acquired for UPSIDC in the year 1973. However, there was no award made for the acquisition to the land owners and any physical possession was not done as well.

Earlier, the land owners had filed petitions before the High Court which gave decision in 2014 with a direction to the state government to exempt the land from acquisition. However by the impugned order instead of exemption of the land the state authority directed to the land acquisition officer to take recourse to acquire the land under the new land acquisition act of 2013.
