This appeal is preferred by the requisitioning authority, the Airport
Director, Calicut Airport. The case is in respect of acquisition of land in
Nediyirippu Village of Malappuram District, for extension of run way of
the Calicut Airport. The acquisition was pursuant to Section 4(1)

judgment. Following the aforesaid judgment, we re-fix the land value at
