With the Supreme Court order on stopping distribution of land yet to be received by authorities here, survey and ground levelling work continued on Wednesday even as over 150 farmers submitted forms for reclaiming their holdings.
A 50-member team from the Records and Survey Department was surveying areas in Gopalnagar, Shanapara and Kolaypara here in Hooghly district, Block Land and Land Revenue Officer, Probal Pagal said.
Block Development Officer Pulok Sarkar said, “Since we have not received any direction from the court, we are continuing the survey and ground levelling work.”
The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed the West Bengal government not to go ahead with distribution and return of land in Singur.
Altogether 153 unwilling farmers submitted forms for claiming back their holdings during the day.
Mr. Sarkar said that till date, 1,279 unwilling farmers had submitted forms for land they had unwillingly parted for the Tata Motors Nano small car project.
Trinamool Congress MLA and Convenor of the Singur Krishi Jami Raksha Committee Becharam Manna said that survey could be taken up from the Durgapur Expressway.
