Three-judge judgement on land acquisition to be heard by larger beach: SC


New Delhi, The Supreme Court on Thursday said the three-judge bench judgement on land acquisition, which was overruled by another three-judge bench of the court, would now be heard by a larger bench of the top court.
The top court's Thursday ruling comes in the light of an unprecedented situation arising from a three-judge bench judgement being overruled by another three-judge bench of the court.Apparently, the Supreme Court wants to resolve the unprecedented situation.
A two-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Justice Arun Mishra referred to Chief Justice of India (CJI) Dipak Misra for posting land acquisition matters before a larger bench to decide whether a three-judge bench on February eight was correct in interpreting the land acquisition law of 2013.
