There's relief, at least for the time being, for 20,000 buyers, who have booked flats in projects coming up in Noida Extension's Patwari village.

The Supreme Court on Wednesday told a group of Patwari farmers to withdraw their petitions that challenged the government's move to make an out-of-court settlement with farmers.

A section of farmers in Patwari, where the authority on August 6 struck a higher compensation-based deal to revive real estate projects, had moved the apex court against the pact.

In a related development, a judge heading an Allahabad High Court bench constituted for hearing petitions challenging acquisition of land in Gautam Budh Nagar district recused himself from the case.
