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.

We have been appearing before many courts and forums including the Honorable Supreme Court, High Court, Arbitrator, Land acquisition collector/competent authority, etc. Our team has handled many successful cases across the state of Punjab and Haryana relating to the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI).

Our team of lawyers has vast experience in land acquisition matters. Given below are some of the acts under which land may be acquired by different arms of the Government for different purposes:

  • Land Acquisition Act, 1894
  • Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013 (LARR Act)
  • The National Highways Act, 1956
  • The Electricity Act, 2003
  • The Railways Act, 1986
  • The Petroleum and Minerals Pipelines (Acquisition of Right of User in Land) Act, 1962
  • The Metro Railways (Construction of Works) Act, 1978
  • The Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Sites and Remains Act, 1958 etc.
