The process of giving physical possession of land to farmers in Singur will begin on October 20, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today said.
Talking to reporters at the state secretariat after chairing a high-level meet on Singur, she said, "The process of giving physical possession of land in Singur will begin on October 20. I will be present personally."
This process would be completed in 20-22 days, she said.
According to Banerjee, 80 per cent land in Singur had been made ready for farming.
A division bench of justices Arun Mishra and V Gopala Gowda of Supreme Court on August 31 ruled that the land acquisition process in Singur for the car project was faulty and was not for public purpose.
The court had directed that land be returned to the farmers within 12 weeks' time.
Banerjee had dubbed the Supreme Court verdict as a "landmark victory" and said her government would implement it in letter and spirit.
