NATWARBHAI MAGAINBHAI PATEL V. COLLECTOR & ORS  RD-SC 722 (10 May 1996)
K. RAMASWAMY, FAIZAN UDDIN, G.B. PATTANAIK
O R D E R Delay condoned.
Counsel for the petitioner admits that a notification under Section 10  of the Urban Ceiling Act was published pursuant to which the excess vacant land was surrendered and taken possession of by the Government. Consequently, the land stands vested in the State free rom all the encumbrances. In what manner the lands require to be utilised has been regulated under the provisions of the act.
It is not a condition, under the Act, that payment of compensation be made before utilisation of the land of which the petitioner was erswhile owner. Under these circumstances, we do not find any illegality in the order passed by the High Court in Special Civil Appeal No.4093/93 on May 15, 1995.
The Special Leave Petition is accordingly dismissed.
