HYDERABAD: A petition was filed in the Hyderabad High Court challenging the new guidelines issued by the Telangana government by amending the Central Land Acquisition Act, 2013.
The petitioner Telangana Agriculture Labour Association, represented by its general secretary R Venkata Ramulu, sought the court to stay the final notification issued with regard to new guidelines for land acquisition in the state. 

The petitioner further said that the government has failed to place its order and the gazette notification on the website, but has issued GO 92 dated May 31, 2017 relating to draft guidelines. All of a sudden the said GO appeared on the government website on July 10.

Another GO 120 relating to the final guidelines was also placed on the website on July 10. The government has failed to maintain transparency on the issue.  Principal secretary to revenue (land acquisition) was named as the respondent.
