Article 300-A of the Constitution of India ensures that no person is deprived of any property except by the authority of law. This means that a lawful procedure must be applied by the Central or the State Governments in case there is acquisition of any private property. These acquisitions give rise to multiple issues such as payment of compensation, assessment of the compensation, enhancement of compensation, handing over possession, compensation for buildings, loss of structures, loss of business, etc. Some of the most common disputes in land acquisition matters relate to enhancement of compensation and deposit/payment of compensation to landowners, etc.
