land acquisition act=whether the reference court rightly awarded interest from the date of taking possession or not? The said issue is no longer res integra. It is now fairly well settled that the starting point for granting of interest is from the date of issuance of the notification, but not anterior to it. Therefore, the claimants are entitled to interest from the date of issuance of the notification i.e., on 30.08.1985 on the compensation including Solatium and additional market value with all statutory benefits, as per the law declared by the Supreme Court in V.Sunder v. Union of India (AIR 2001 SC 3516). The Appeal Suit (SR) is, accordingly, allowed in part. No order as to costs.

land acquisition act = private land with tenancy encumbrances when acquired comparable sale can be adopted and land is worth for open market value as it is private land and not saddled with conditional purchase. Let us assume the value of a property which is not subject to any lease is Rs.Ten lakhs. If that property was subject to a lease and if the possession was with the lessee, a purchaser will offer only Rs.Five lakhs as he will be purchasing a property with an encumbrance and will not be getting physical possession. But when the property subject to a lease is acquired, under the Land Acquisition Act, 1894, what is acquired is not only the landlord’s right, title and interest, but also the lessee’s right and interest. In other words the property with all rights, free from

land acquisition act =acquired tenancy land =Having regard to section 2 of the Land Use Act, whether the acquired land should be valued only as agricultural land or whether it could be valued as land with development potential for being used as building sites?= It is not the case of the respondent that the land has been converted to non-agricultural use under sections 30 and 32 of the Land Revenue Code. In fact, before the issue of a purchase certificate on 6.5.1993, it may not be possible for a tenant-purchaser to apply for conversion to non- agricultural use. It is, thus, clear that the land in question was agricultural land as on the date when the Land Use Act came into force and when the land was acquired under the Land Acquisition Act. Therefore, the contention that it was not agricultural land, is rejected. 26. Consequently we allow the appeal filed by the Board and reduce the compensation awarded for land from Rs.100/- per sq.m. to Rs.55 per sq.m. The respondent will be entitled to all statutory benefits as awarded by the
