A new book on new land acqustion Act of 2013 titled as  "Guide to Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisiton, Rehablitation and Resettlement Act 2013" was released on 17th May, 2014 by Justice A K Sikri, Judge Suprme Court of India and Justice Pradeep Nandrajog and Justice Gita Mittal Judges of Delhi High Court.

The authors of the book are Anupam Srivastava and Monika Srivastava. Anupam is the Partner of "The Chambers of Law", while Monika besides advising Clients is an Associate Professor at Vivekand Institute of Professional Studies.

This book would offer great help to Corporates seeking acquisition of land for their projects. It will also help Lawyers, Consultants and other persons dealing with land acquisiton.

Since this Act is totally different from the old Land Acquisition Act therefore; the authors extended our pen to this statute, its interpretation and provisions. Though this book is a commentary on the new Land Acquisition Act, however, unlike, conventional books it is not written as a section based commentary. Each chapter deals with a specific topic and contains complete information relevant to that topic. Relevant provisions of the statute have been reproduced in the footnote to make it convenient for the readers. The Act largely remains unchallenged in superior Courts in India till this date and therefore the authors did not have the benefit of authoritative judicial pronouncements.

The book can be obtained at
