The Delhi high court has ordered a 10% hike in compensation to farmers for acquisition of their land in three urban villages having 'locational advantages' such as the IGI Airport in the vicinity.

"I find the aspect of higher potentiality of the acquired lands being in the vicinity of the IGI Airport, Indian Oil and Bharat Petroleum Depots and of railway line passing through village Bharthal...has somehow missed the attention of the reference (lower) court," justice Sunil Gaur said, while "partly" allowing a bunch of pleas for hike.

The judgment came on petitions of farmers from Bharthal, Bijwasan and Pochanpur villages, seeking enhanced compensation for plots acquired in December 2000 for the
planned development of Dwarka Phase-II.
