neither sought for a reference under Section 18(1) of the Act nor
for redetermination of compensation under Section 28(A) of the

compensation to all the other land owners also. This Court has
already held that this general direction will apply to all the land
owners falling under all the notifications.

hereby quashed. The RDO, Erode district, is directed to consider
the claim made by the petitioners and redetermine the
compensation amount, in line with the orders passed by the
Hon’ble Supreme Court in Valliammal case and in Samiyathal
case and the entire compensation amount shall be paid (after
