Supreme Court Relief to Punjab Farmers against Arbitrary Evictions

Standard

Many Punjab Farmers were given farming land for farming in 1960 to 1970 around.

It was condition that every year they should give 1/3 share from crops to Government of Punjab ( Seed Farm)

Initial lease was only for 1 year but they continued thereafter and government kept accepting 1/3 share from crops.

After 1985, in many cases, government stopped taking 1/3rd share and started evicting them.

At least three such farmers first went to Punjab and Haryana High Court for protection. Their cases were dismissed.

Supreme Court granted stay and protected these farmers. It appeared that wrong interpretation was given to certain provisions of law by High Court.

These cases are pending in Supreme Court.
