L Ravichander, Senior Counsel, appearing on behalf of the Applicant, argued that the land was neither notified in the notification, nor that no award had been issued. The standing lawyer, representing HMDA, also said that the property was not covered by a notification and that the matter had already been referred to the empowered committee at the project level for approval of the payment of compensation under the old law.
