Ten years after acquiring 167 acres in Dhanas and 15 years after the acquisition of 40 acres in Kaimbwala, the UT administration has deposited more than Rs 85 crore for the land with the Sector 43 district courts in compliance with a Punjab and Haryana High Court order.
However, the amount is only a fraction of what the high court had ordered the administration to give. In the 2015 order, the high court had directed the administration to give Rs 91.8 lakh per acre for the Dhanas land and Rs 25,87 lakh per acre for the Kaimbwala land to the litigants instead of the lower amounts it was offering.
