Of Rs. 250 crore, GMADA had paid Rs. 50 crore on October 5 and Rs. 7 crore on October 19.
The money was paid on the direction of the district court on September 21. The court of additional district judge Jaswinder Sheemar had issued the order on petitions filed by Sushil Kumar Attri, Baldev Singh and Jaspal Singh to attach the property of GMADA if it failed to pay the compensation to the farmers.

According to the petitioners, the farmers were not satisfied with the compensation of Rs. 40 lakh per acre. On approaching the court, the amount was revised to Rs. 53.39 lakh.
