In Jharkhand, land is acquired many times in the name of setting up an industrial unit to provide employment. However, despite taking possession of the land, complaints are received from the company concerned about not starting the work. In a similar case of Jamshedpur, the court of Minister Champai Soren, who became the presiding officer under Section-49 (5) of the Chotanagpur Tenancy Act, 1908, has adopted a strict attitude for not using the land even after its acquisition.
Minister Champai Soren’s court in its order has ordered to return the acquired land to the ryot. The Minister said that this has been done under section-49 (5) of the Chotanagpur Tenancy Act, 1908. In this, work has not been done as per the agreement made by the company on the land acquired to M/s Bhalotia Engineering Works Limited, Main Road Bistupur, Jamshedpur in East Singhbhum district.
