Tata Motors is likely to move court on Wednesday against the Singur land rehabilitation and development bill, 2011, which cancels the 997.17-acre land lease given by the erstwhile Left Front government to Tata Motors, sources said.

Barrister Samaraditya Pal would represent the automobile giant in court, the sources said.

Amid a walkout by the opposition Left Front lawmakers, the West Bengal assembly on June 14 passed the bill that was designed to keep the Trinamool Congress regime's pre-poll promise of returning 400 acres to the farmers from whom land had been allegedly taken by the Left Front government against their will for setting up the now abandoned Tata Motors small car factory in Singur.
