From Times of India :

With the fate of thousands of dwelling units in the Noida Extension-Greater Noida area remaining uncertain, all parties affected by the dispute — homebuyers, farmers, builders — will be keenly watching the developments in Allahabad High Court this week, as 220 petitions filed by farmers against land acquisition are slated to come up for hearing.

First up before the court are 50 petitions filed by groups of farmers from Patwari village that will be heard on Tuesday, July 19. Another group of 50 farmers from Rauja-Yakubpur will be heard on Wednesday. Thursday could be the busiest, with another 120 petitions of farmers from Bisrakh, Haibatpur, Ghanghola, Devla and Iteda villages lined up.

Encouraged by Supreme Court's July 6 judgment that quashed acquisition in Sahberi village, these villages have moved court for similar relief. Some villages around Noida Extension-Greater Noida, such as Milak Lacchi, Jalalpur, Vaidpura and Sadullapur, have also approached the court to seek reversal of acquisition in their area. The petitions say land in these villages was acquired using the urgency clause of Land Acquisition Act, which was termed illegal by the court and used as a ground to quash land acquisition in Sahberi. The petitions also say the 'land use' was changed from industrial to residential, to suit private builders.
