Two Villagers May Become Owners Of A Janshatabdi Train Because Of Indian Railways’ Mistake

Updated on 28 August, 2018 at 5:01 pm By

The Indian Railways failed to pay a compensation of Rs. 35 lakh to two villagers in Una district of Himachal Pradesh for acquiring their land – which they did in 1998 – to lay the Una-Amb track.

Now, in his April 9 ruling, the court of Una’s additional district and sessions judge Mukesh Bansal ordered to attach the Delhi-Una Janshatabdi Express if the railways failed to pay the compensation by April 15.

According to TOI, villagers Mela Ram and Madan Lal moved the court against the delay in payment of compensation even after the Himachal Pradesh HC had directed the railways in 2013 to pay the money within six weeks.
