Failure to pay compensation to villagers lands UT in trouble

On February 13, 2009, the court again ordered and increased the amount to Rs 9.92 lakh and 6 per cent interest per acre for the land. In addition to this, the administration has to pay rent for the land for 10 years (1988-1998) at the rate of Rs 5,930 per acre.

The UT Administration had then moved an application requesting the court to stay the orders which was rejected by the high court in 2010. Since then, the administration has not paid any amount to the villagers.
