Hooghly: The government all-together
received 2627 applications from unwilling farmers, who gave up
land for Tata Motors Nano Project, on the last day on Friday of
the month-long process for compensatory land allotment,
After the West Bengal government passed the Singur
Land Rehabilitation and Development Act 2011 acquiring the
land from Tata Motors, the Hooghly district administration had
asked unwilling land-owners to submit applications detailing
the amount of their land acquired, in order to allot
compensatory land to them.

applications received, the officials added.
