Tata dues: West Bengal explores legal options – Times of India

by The Technical Blogs

KOLKATA: West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday held a meeting with the state law minister Moloy Ghatak and other legal aides to decide on the mode of appeal against an arbitration panel order directing the West Bengal Industrial Development Corp (WBIDC) to pay Tata Motors Rs 766 crore as compensation over losses incurred due to the scrapping of its car factory in Singur.
The state is mulling whether to challenge the order in the Calcutta high court or move the Supreme Court directly.
Trinamool Congress spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said, “The apex court had held that the land acquisition in Singur was illegal and void. If the land acquisition was illegal, where is the question of the company and its claims? The state government, to the best of our knowledge, is exploring all legal avenues.”
He added, “Mamata Banerjee’s Singur agitation was not against the industry. It was for poor peasants who did not want to part with their multiple-crop land. Let industry come up in the land earmarked for industry. The land of poor farmers cannot be taken at gunpoint.”
