Stay on demolition of 2 dams in Tata estates extended

KOCHI: Kerala High court Friday extended the stay on demolition of two check dams constructed by the Tata group-owned Kanan Devan Hills Plantation company in its estates in Munnar for a further period of one month.

The interim order was issued by a Green Bench comprising Justices P R Raman and C N Ramachandran Nair on an affidavit filed by the Plantation company challenging the show cause notice issued to it by the Idukki Collector.

The bench asked the Government to inform its views regarding establishment of special tribunal to resolve the disputes regarding land in the resort town of Munnar.

It also asked Additional Advocate General Ranjit Thampan to inform the views of government regarding regularisation of old occupants of small holdings in Munnar.
