Singur: Tata’s plea for interim order rejected
Kolkata: The Calcutta High Court on Monday refused to pass an interim order restraining the West Bengal government from distributing to farmers in Singur the land acquired earlier to set up Tata`a car manufacturing unit.
On Tata Motor`s plea that an interim injunction be passed to restrain distribution of the land from tomorrow, Justice Saumitra Pal said in that case the company`s original petition challenging the Singur Land Rehablitation and Development Act, 2011 would become infructuous.
Justice Pal observed that since the court found from the petition that no specific statement has been made that land distribution would start tomorrow, no interim order was being passed.
Tata Motor`s counsel Samaraditya Pal moved an ex-parte petition seeking stay on distribution of land expressing apprehension that it would be distributed within a day or two.
Appearing for the West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation, senior counsel Saktinath Mukherjee opposed the prayer claiming that it could not be done when the opposite party was present in the court and copies would have to be
served to them.
