People protesting against the demolition of the temple for Road WideningThe case relates to the land of Amareswara Temple in Amaravathi which was acquired by the Government of Andhra Pradesh 16 years ago to build a social welfare girls hostel without compensating the Temple. This is violation of earlier orders of the high court, the present bench said. As the high court stated the government have to take the permission of the High Court before giving away any endowment land to a third party. Now that the new Land Acquisition Act 2013 is in force the State should follow the rules governing compensation under the Act. The High Court bench headed by acting Chief Justice Ramesh Rangarajan and Justice J Uma Devi ordered the payment of 24 Lakh per acre along with 24 per cent interest per annum for the four acres of land acquired and failing to that within a period of two months the State Government of Andhra Pradesh should take disciplinary action against the concerned authorities.
