Kolkata: Land in Singur will be returned within the time frame set by court, Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Thursday.
The Supreme Court Wednesday set aside the land acquired the West Bengal Government in 2006 to facilitate Tata Motors to set up its plant for the Nano car. Calling it a landmark victory, Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said she stands vindicated.
A strategy meeting was held in Nabanna today to discuss the process of return of land. It was attended by various ministers, departmental secretaries, MLAs and advisors to the government.
The survey of the land in Singur will begin tomorrow and will be completed within two weeks, the Chief Minister said. She added that those who did not take the money for compensation will be given their dues, as per court verdict.
The land will be made suitable for agriculture, the Chief Minister said. “We have also decided to give possession to bargadars as per land records before acquisition,” she added.
