This appeal has been filed by the Union of India seeking reduction
of compensation for the acquired land.

Briefly, the facts are that land situated in village Daba, Tehsil and
District Ludhiana was acquired by the Government of India for defence purpose,
namely Dholewal Complex. The landowners feeling dissatisfied filed petitions
under the Requisitioning and Acquisition of Immovable Property Act, 1952, for
determination of compensation. The learned court below was appointed as
Arbitrator, who determined the compensation payable to the landowners @ Rs.
140/- per square yard. The Union of India is in appeal against the award of the

Learned counsel for the appellant fairly submitted that the issue
involved in the present appeal is squarely covered by the judgment of this court in
Dr. Jagdish Parkash vs The Competent Authority Powers of Special Land
Acquisition Collector, Jalandhar
2006 (4) RCR (Civil) 711, whereby award of the
Arbitrator was upheld in the appeal by the Union of India whereas some relief was
granted to the landowners.

For the reasons recorded in Dr. Jagdish Parkash’s case (supra), the
present appeal is disposed of in the same terms.
