Mysuru: A City Court has ordered attachment of MUDA properties for the delay in payment of compensation to a farmer whose land was acquired by MUDA for formation of Lalithadripura Layout.
The MUDA has acquired 17 guntas of land belonging to one Venkataramanagowda of Lalithadripura in 1997. The MUDA then had paid compensation at the rate of Rs. 1.25 lakh per acre in 2000, following which Venkataramanagowda moved the District Court seeking more compensation.
The Court which heard Gowda’s plea, directed MUDA to pay more compensation.
But as MUDA unduly delayed payment of higher compensation, the Court ordered attachment of MUDA properties, following which the Court Amin went to MUDA to present the Court order, when MUDA Special Land Acquisition Officer Indramma promised to pay the ordered compensation in a couple of days, it is learnt.
