Puran And Others v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - C No. 12933 of 2007  RD-AH 4172 (12 March 2007)
Hon. Anjani Kumar, J.
Hon. Dilip Gupta, J.
The petitioner is aggrieved by the order dated 21st February, 2007 that has been passed by the Additional District Magistrate (Land Acquisition), Gautam Budh Nagar by which the compensation for the land in dispute has not been released in favour of the petitioner but has been ordered to be deposited in the State Government account.
Sri S.C. Mandhyan learned counsel appearing for the petitioner has raised a number of submissions against the said order but we are of the opinion that the petitioner has a statutory alternative remedy of filing a reference application under Section 18 of the Land Acquisition Act, 1894 against the aforesaid order passed by the Additional District Magistrate (Land Acquisition).
In this view of the matter, we decline to entertain this petition and leave it open to the petitioner to pursue the statutory alternative remedy.
The writ petition is, accordingly, dismissed.
