KHAMMAM: District judge I Ramesh has ordered to attach the furniture at the revenue divisional office (RDO) in Khammam for disobeying court orders and not paying in return for land acquisition. Revenue officials had acquired 24 kunta of land from Koppula Madhrarayya for laying a bypass road in Khammam a decade ago. The government had paid him `400 per yard as compensation.
Later, Madharayya approached the court demanding a compensation of `10,000 per yard, alleging that the rate fixed by the government was very low. Considering the plea, the court, in it’s order dated August 26, 2013, directed the officials to provide compensation at the rate of `6,000 per yard to Madharayya. But the land acquisition officer and Khammam revenue divisional officer failed implement court order.
As Madharayya approached the court, pointing out that the authorities failed to obey the order, the Judge ordered to attach ten computers, one jeep and the furniture of the Revenue Divisional Office.
“Since I have joined recently, I am not aware of the court order. This case will be taken up on priority,” said Khamma revenue divisional officer C Vinaya Krishna Reddy. The court has postponed the case hearing to November 7 when a further decision will be taken.
