Supreme Court Dismisses Farmers’ Plea for Higher Compensation for Land - 12.08.2019

Supreme Court has dismissed a plea by farmers for ‘fair compensation’ for land acquired from them. It said the villagers came to court 21 years later which is too late and thus refused to condone the same.The Court applied the Doctrine of Acquiescence on the farmers. Thus, once the agriculturists acquiesce to certain terms, even if the terms are found wrong, they lose their right to come back and complain.
