The case of Amit Kumar Pan & Ors versus Subrata Mukherjee & Ors for KMDA was litigated by Senior Advocate Mr. Rajesh Kshetry. He was handling the case on behalf of the petitioner Amit Kumar Pan & Ors
What is the issue?
The issue was Amit Kumar Pan & Ors., owner of two premises No. 3 and 4/1 Sarbamangala Lane, Kolkata comprising of 0.2376 acres of land. The proposal for requisition and acquisition by KMDA was received by the petitioner in the year 1976 for the purpose of maintaining supplies and services essential to the common man i.e. to put up a market place to facilitate availability of essential goods and to provide a market place for hawkers.
As requested and desired by the respondents, the property was handed over in the year 1976. In the year 1978, the respondents informed that they do not need the premises and directed the concerned departments to release the above premises. Even after receipt of necessary directives, the property was not released and continued to be under their possession.
Failing to get their property back, the petitioners approached Senior Advocate Mr Rajesh Kshetry to bail them out of this difficult situation and arrange to salvage their land.
His accurate and intelligent argument in the Ld. Court compelled the respondents to return back the property along with a decent compensation.
Sr. Advocate Mr Rajesh Kshetry, once again succeeded in providing relief to the harassed petitioners, thus adding another feather to his cap.
