Supreme Court to hear Kandlakoya case on 18th April 2018
Hyderabad: The long pending Kandlakoya case will come up for hearing in the Apex Court on Wednesday.
The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authorities claimed that the issue pertaining to the construction of the Outer Ring Road at Kandlakoya Junction which was going on for 10 years, was expected to come to an end soon.
However, the HMDA has already received the go ahead from the SC a few months ago, to resume the road works at Kandlakoya pending the final judgement. The pending work is expected to be completed within the next few weeks.
According to an HMDA official, the metropolitan body and the property owners had held consultations, as per the directions of the Supreme Court, to come to an agreement regarding the compensation amount.
It has been learnt that the landowners have agreed to accept the package offered by the HMDA as per the Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act of 2013.
The metropolitan body has so far been unable to acquire nearly 110 acres of land near Kandlakoya due to pending legal cases, first in the High Court and later in the Supreme Court.
While some landowners were willing to part with their lands, others refused to do so and moved court alleging that project alignments had been changed to suit the needs of influential persons.
