NOIDA asked to consider pleas on land package
The Allahabad High Court has directed the New Okhla Industrial Development Authority (NOIDA) to consider the applications of all those persons,who had sold land to the authority and claimed to be eligible for 10 per cent of developed land being returned to them as part of the compensation package. The court directed the authority to dispose of such cases,as per law,within three months.
In 2011,a three-judge bench,while disposing of hundreds of petitions challenging the land acquisition in NOIDA and Greater Noida,had directed the two authorities to consider returning 10 per cent of developed land to those landowners,whose petitions challenging the acquisition were earlier rejected; or if they had never approached the court in this regard.
Following the decision,many land owners,including the petitioner,one Jagat Singh,had approached the authority concerned. However,their cases were yet to be decided.
AUSU presidents election set aside
The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday set aside the election of the president of the Allahabad University Students Union (AUSU) Dinesh Singh Yadav. The court passed the order on a petition filed by Abhishek Singh alias Sonu,who was one of the contestants to the presidents post and had finished on the second position. He had challenged Yadavs election on the ground that he was wrongly allowed to contest the polls,as he had been rusticated from the university in 2008.
