Godrej & Boyce loses plea in bullet train land dispute
However, the bench, which also comprised justices P.S. Narasimha and J.B. Pardiwala, said Godrej & Boyce should pursue its remedies under the law for the enhancement of compensation instead of fighting the acquisition
The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed Godrej & Boyce Manufacturing Co. Ltd’s appeal against the Maharashtra government’s acquisition of its Vikhroli land for the Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project. The apex court observed that the project is of national importance and should not be delayed on account of a dispute concerning the compensation given to a party for the acquisition of their land.
