The notification will be issued on May 14 for the lands to be acquired in river-front villages of Undavalli and Penumaka in Guntur, including the those who moved court complaining delay in disposing of their pleas raised under Rule -6 (2) (1) of AP Capital City Land Pooling Scheme Rules 2015.

The notification under Land Acquisition Act will be issued only to those lands whose owners did not agree to part with their lands to implement fair compensation, rehabilitation and resettlement provisions under the LA Act. However, it appears that there was some confusion as the petitioners opposing land pooling went to court on the ground that their objections were not disposed of within 15 days as stated in the Land Pooling Scheme .Objections to be resolved
