NOTIFY ACQUISITION PUBLICLY: SC

If the government does not issue a public notification regarding acquisition of land, the
acquisition will be invalid and illegal. Notification in the official gazette is not enough. On the
reasoning, The Supreme Court has quashed a land acquisition by the Maharashtra government
as it did not issue public notification to that effect. The land acquisition act makes it mandatory to
announce the acquisition in the official gazette as well as publicly.
