Emergency (Land and Building) Requisition Ordinance, 1982


(Land and Building) Requisition Ordinance [II of 1982]

Sections 5 & 44–

Section 5 of
the Ordinance provides that the decision of the government shall be the
conclusive evidence that the property is needed for a public purpose. The High
Court Division is correct in saying that if from the pleading it can be seen
that the purpose does not appear to be in public interest the Civil Court’s
jurisdiction is not ousted by section 44 of the Ordinance.
