AGRICULTURAL LAND IN TOWN BE TREATED AS URBAN LAND

THE HONOURABLE MR. JUSTICE ANAND BYRAREDDY WRIT PETITION No.34303 OF 2012 (LA-RES) in the case of Sri N V Ramesh vs The State Of Karnataka, Decided on 10 March, 2014 There is one aspect however which requires to be taken note of by this Court and which is a glaring circumstance. It is not in dispute that the lands in question are treated as agricultural lands and are referred to by their survey numbers, apparently indicating that what is sought to be acquired is agricultural. It is also not in dispute that the lands are in the middle of the Town and not on the outskirts. If this is so, even if the lands remain as agricultural lands in the revenue records, the area is entirely built up and the lands have lost their character of agricultural land and to that extent, the petitioners being deprived of just compensation, would result in grave injustice. Therefore, given the admitted circumstance that the lands in question are well within the Town limits and are surrounded by built up areas and it is evident that one of the petitioners has even obtained conversion of the land belonging to him and has constructed a shopping complex which would establish that the adjacent lands of other petitioners are equally very much inside the Town and ought to be treated as urban land.
