HYDERABAD: Finding fault with the decision of the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) to cancel the land allotment order a division bench of the High Court on Thursday dismissed the appeal by HMDA challenging the order of a single judge setting aside the decision of the then HMDA commissioner on the subject land.
In 2008, Alexandria Healthcity Hyderabad Pvt Ltd purchased a five-acre land at Khanamet, near Hitec City, from HMDA by paying Rs 10 crore per acre. In 2012, the then HMDA commissioner issued notice for cancellation of the allotment of the said land citing that there was no permission from the company board for such purchase. Aggrieved by it, the company moved the High Court in 2013.
Finding fault with the decision of the HMDA commissioner, a single judge set aside the impugned order. The bench, comprising acting chief justice Ramesh Ranganathan and justice J Uma Devi, upheld the order of the single judge and dismissed the appeal.
