P R E S E N T: THE HON’BLE THE CHIEF JUSTICE

JUDGMENT
( 09.04.2010)

Dipak Misra, C.J.

In this batch of appeals, the challenge is to the award dated

26.11.1994 passed by the learned Special Land Acquisition Judge,

III, Patna in L.A.Case No.1 of 1993 and other connected cases.

2. A notification was issued under Section 4(1) of the

Land Acquisition Act, 1894 (for short, ‘the Act’) for acquisition of

74.515 acres of land situate in village Raipura, P.S. Fatwah,

District-Patna for construction of Railway Godown. The Land

Acquisition Officer determined the price at Rs.2403/- per katha.

The awardees not being satisfied with the same filed an application

for reference to the Civil Court and the Land Acquisition Officer

referred the matter to the Civil Court.

3. Before the Civil Court, it was contended that the

claimants were entitled to Rs.50,000/- per katha as that was the

price at the time of acquisition. It was also contended that the Land

– 29 –

Acquisition Officer had not taken into consideration the documents

on record and had arbitrarily determined the price.

4. Before the Reference Judge, number of witnesses were

examined on behalf of the claimants and documents were exhibited

to highlight how the transactions were made which would show the

land was sold at much higher rate.

5. The learned Reference Judge referred to the sale deeds

vide Ext.-1 series produced on behalf of the awardees. Ext.-1 is the

certified copy of the sale deed dated 05.04.1989 in respect of

Survey Plot No.1029 of Village Raipura, whereby one katha of land

was sold for Rs.10,000/-. Vide Ext.-1/A, 1/3rd katha was sold at

Rs.8,000/-. Ext.-1/B is the sale deed by which an area of 5 kathas

was sold for Rs.45,000/-. Ext.-C is a sale deed by which one katha

of land was sold at Rs.11,000/-. He has also referred to Exts. A, B

and C, the valuation report, valuation khatiyan and the sale

statements on which the Land Acquisition Judge has relied.

6. It is worth noting the Land Acquisition Officer had

awarded Rs.2403/- per katha relying on the three documents,

namely, Ext.A, B and C. The Reference court relying on the

contemporaneous sale deeds determined the price at Rs.11,000/- per

katha.

7. While determining the compensation, the court is

required to keep in mind the law that has been crystalised by the

– 30 –

Apex Court in the decisions rendered in Ahmedabad Municipal

Corporation and Others Vs. Shardaben and others (1996) 8

SCC 93, Hookiyar Singh and others Vs. Special Land

Acquisition Officer, Moradabad and another, (1996) 3 SCC 766,

State of U.P. and others Vs. Ram Kumari Devi (Smt) and

others, (1996) 8 SCC 577 and Gujarat Industrial Development

Corporation Vs. Narrottambhai Morarbhai and another,

(1996) 11 SCC 159.

8. In the case at hand, there are number of sale deeds

which were exhibited, and the same would show the price per katha

varied from Rs.9,000/- to Rs.11,000/-. As the Land Acquisition

Officer had fixed the price per katha, the learned reference Judge

could not be said to be gone by determining the price per acre.

When the said principle is accepted, the only thing remains for

consideration is the determination of quantum. The acquired area of

the transaction covered in the sale deeds is almost adjacent to the

land. The said fact is not disputed by learned counsel for the parties.

9. Regarding being had to the proximity of the area and

the contemporaneous sale deeds and the oral evidence brought on

record and the principle that has been fixed by the Lordships of the

Apex Court and the component of guess work which can be taken

aid of, I am of the considered opinion the valuation should be

determined at Rs.8,000/- per katha and accordingly, the award

– 31 –

passed by the Reference Judge is modified and the claimants would

be entitled to compensation at the rate of Rs.8,000/- per katha.

Needless to say they shall be entitled all statutory benefits including

the interest on solatium as per the decision rendered in Sunder Vs.

Union of India, AIR 2001 SC 3516.

10. In the result, the appeals are allowed in part. The award

shall be modified accordingly. The modified award shall be

satisfied within four months. The parties shall bear their respective

costs throughout.
