State cannot dispossess anyone of their land without due process of law, Supreme Court
The right to fair compensation in case of acquisition of land can be inferred in Article 300A even though not mentioned expressly, the Supreme Court said.
Right to property continues to be a Human Right in a welfare State and a Constitutional right in India even though it has ceased to be a Fundamental Right, the Supreme Court reiterated on Wednesday. The State cannot dispossess a person of their property without due process of law, the Court added.
