Allahabad HC seeks UP govt’s reply on plea challenging land lease

Published on 15 Jul 2017 by Team

The Allahabad High Court today sought a reply from the Uttar Pradesh government on a petition challenging the grant of lease for a huge tract of land in Bulandshahr district to a trust run by an industrial group.

A division bench comprising justices Arun Tandon and Rituraj Awasthi passed the order on the petition of Bulandshahr resident Nathimal, who challenged the grant of lease for 40 acres of land, for a period of 90 years, to Jaiprakash Sewa Sansthan – a trust run by the Jaypee group of industries.

The petitioner claimed that there was no law under which the state could give land to a private person.

He also alleged that the municipal council of Anoopshahr, while granting the lease of the land in 2009, had fixed the annual rent payable at Rs 40,000 which should have been no less than Rs 96 lakh as per the prevailing rates.

The court directed the state government to explain under which law the land could have been given to a private party, and fixed July 17 as the next date of hearing in the matter.
