Greater Noida, July 20 (IANS) The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) will appeal the Allahabad High Court order to return to farmer their lands in Patwari village, an official said Wednesday.

The GNIDA would file either a review petition before the Allahabad High Court against its judgment on 598 hectare land in Patwari village or file a special leave petition (SLP) before the Supreme Court, GNIDA CEO Rama Raman told media persons here.

“We will study the judgment and then decide,” he said.

Giving merits for the petition, the CEO contended that there is a lot of difference between Patwari and Shahberi cases, where also the land acquisition had been quashed - this time by the Supreme Court - earlier this month.

“In Shahberi village, only 15 percent farmers took the compensation while 85 percent farmers protested the acquisition while in Patwari, the case is reverse. Here 85 percent farmers took compensation and only 15 percent farmers remained to contest the acquisition,” he said.

Raman also said that in Shahberi village the dispute was between the farmers, the builders and the authority, while in Patwari the allottees have been given physical possession in GNIDA’s own scheme, thus making four parties to the dispute, he said.
