Tata Motors Limited moved the Supreme Court today challenging the order of the Calcutta High Court refusing to stay distribution of land to owners at Singur.

"This is an exceptional case. If the land is distributed to farmers, it will be irreversible," the company said. The court will hear their plea tomorrow.

Earlier in a statement, the company spokesperson had said Tata Motors Limited will raise the matter before the Supreme Court as per the country's legal procedure.

The Calcutta High Court on Monday refused to pass an interim stay on the Tata Motors Limited plea that they were apprehensive that land in Singur would be distributed to the unwilling farmers from Tuesday.

In the Singur Bill that was passed, Ms Banerjee accused the Tatas of "non-commissioning and abandoning" their project. The company disagrees strongly with this. In a statement earlier this month, Tata Motor said, "The operations of setting up and commissioning of the plant was conducted under very difficult conditions, amidst violence... there being no guarantee of a safe and peaceful environment, Tata had to reluctantly close operations on October 3, 2008."
