Tatas move Supreme Court over Singur land

NEW DELHI: The Tatas moved Supreme Court on Tuesday challenging the Calcutta high court refusing to stay distribution of land to owners at Singur.

Tata Motors have requested the apex court to stay the Singur Land Rehabilitation and Development Act passed by the West Bengal Assembly by the Trinamool Congress government.

It has also sought to restrain state govt from taking possession of the land allotted to it at Singur.

The Tatas want the court to direct the govt to return the land already taken over after June 25.

The apex court will hear Tata Motor's petition on Wednesday.

The Calcutta high court had on Monday refused to pass an interim stay on the Tata Motors Limited plea expressing fears that the state government would start distributing their land in Singur to the farmers if the court refused to intervene.
