Every Individual has a right to own or possess or enjoy his property absolutely without interruption from anyone, but due to some exceptions and irregularities under article 300 of the constitution which talks about eminent domain and some provisions in the land Acquisition act 1894 which raises like how compensation paid isn’t enough as per to current market scenario and other issues regarding the owner of the land who has been evicted have not been rehabilitated to as per their satisfaction. This Research paper would further discuss infringement of individual rights may be justified as compared to the greater good of society. In this research paper, we'll look at the evolution of the law governing land acquisition, a few provisions pertaining to compensation, and the adoption of the Indian right to property.I want to remind the readers once more that acquisition is a very broad topic and that numerous laws govern it from the outset. Because of this, I will confine myself to the goal of this research paper. There would be an analysis regarding areas where both the Land Acquisition Act 1894 would be related to LARR Act 2013. We would know whether there are any contradictory concepts like the right to property, principles of eminent domain, etc and how the concept of property and compensation was portrayed and whether the compensation under the acts is satisfying the people who come under this act and how the scheme of compensation was developed over the time period. We would analyze the reasoning behind striking of right to property as a fundamental right.
