However, on May 2, 2018, the company received a notice from the TMC – served to its architect – asking it to stop work as its land was to be acquired for the bullet train project.
In a recently filed affidavit, Sudam Pardeshi, Sub-Divisional Officer of Thane, had stated that the land owned by Atlanta Limited appeared in the new proposal of the bullet train project.
The Bombay High Court on Friday set aside a notice issued by the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) to Atlanta Limited directing it to all stop construction on a three-hectare land near Mumbra, saying the area was part of the “bullet train project-affected area”.
AdvertisingThe TMC, in its notice, had claimed that the buildings were coming up on a land where the Rs 1.08-lakh crore Mumbai-Ahmedabad bullet train project – spread across three districts of Maharashtra – is coming up.
The petitioner also pointed out that the “land is not shown to be affected in the public notice” of March 13.
