Singur land acquisition was illegal - Supreme Court verdict

Supreme Court verdict is that Singut land acquisition was illegal. Left Front government handed over 1000 acres of land to Tata Group for their nano project in 2006.

The land owners will get back their land within 12 weeks.

The bench of Justice V Gopala Gowda and Justice Arun Mishra pronounced the judgement as the acquisition was illegal as it was not a public purpose. 

In May 2006, the then CPM government led by Buddhadeb Bhattacharyya (then CM) announced that Tata would locate their 'Rs 1 lakh' car project — Nano project — in Singur for which some 997 acres of land would be allocated. The land would be acquired for the Tatas by a state industry promotion agency.

Mamata Banerjee protested the acquisition of the land by industry giants Tata. The farmers, whose land was being acquired by the company, were taking their compensation cheques, however, the agitation led by the Trinamool Congress had turned violent.
