Come out with suitable compensation policy for land owners:SC

Amidst growing land acquistion rows across the country, the Supreme Court on Tuesday suggested the government come out with a "reasonable compensation policy" to meet the geniune grievances of land owners.
A vacation bench of justices G S Singhvi and C K Prasad felt if a proper monetary compensation policy was evolved by the government the frequent disputes over acquisition of lands by government would not arise.
"We think if the state formulates a reasonable compensation policy, then these type of disputes would not arise. We are frequently witnessing these type of problems.
Why don't you come out with a proper compensation policy for the land owners"? the bench told Additional Solicitor General P P Malhotra.
The counsel agreed with the suggestion that a proper compensation policy ought to be set up to avert such disputes. He said the government was already in the process of coming out with a suitable mechanism to deal with the issue.
