Sabarimala airport: Estate under dispute to be acquired paying compensation

Kottayam: Kerala government is moving a legislation to acquire Cheruvally Estate for the construction of Sabarimala airport.
As per the new law, the land can be taken up by paying a compensation though it is under an ownership dispute. Though the law is legislated in view of Cheruvally Estate, the government may have to pay compensation for the lands acquired in the past also.
As per the land reforms act, over 15 acres of land can be possessed as a plantation. If the land is used for other purposes, then the land over the 15 acre limit will be treated as surplus land (micha bhumi).
The law proposes to provide compensation for the land and for the constructions. Though a limited area of land is acquired, the agreement regarding the ownership will be applicable for the entire land.
If the acquired land is finalised as the property of the person who claims to be the owner, then the ownership of the rest of the land also will be of that person.
Though the revenue department is in charge of legislating law regarding land, they are unaware of the present moves.
