The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Uttar Pradesh government, Reliance Power Ltd and those farmers on whose petition the Allahabad High Court had cancelled RPower’s acquisition of 2,500 acres of agricultural land for the Dadri power project.

The farmers challenged the validity of the land acquisition on the ground that it was not acquired for public purpose in 2004, as claimed by the State.
