About 105 landowners of Chilla, Mauli Baidwan and Kumbra villages had moved the court seeking directions to GMADA to release the compensation announced in 2007 when 276.25 acres of land was acquired to carve out Sector 81.
Complying with the court orders of releasing the compensation, GMADA on October 5 had deposited `50 crore in order to avoid attachment of its building.
"GMADA is making mockery of the process and is just making part payments as if they are paying the landowners alms and not their due. They earlier deposited `50 crore and now deposited `7 crore just to buy time," said advocate Sushil Attri, counsel of the petitioners.
He added that, "GMADA is making payment in cases where the amount of compensation is too small. The landowners have been waiting to get their dues for the past six years. The court has now granted them last opportunity to pay off their liability."
The court has already issued directives to attach the property of GMADA if it fails to pay the compensation amount to the farmers.
According to the petitioners, the compensation was fixed at `40 lakh per acre and they approached the court for its enhancement. Later, the court revised the compensation to `53.39 lakh per acre.
