Some of the village of farmers sold 192 acre of ancestral property to a real estate. If the farmers not sold the land to the developers so the land was gone to the Haryana government as it had already issued notices for acquisition.  The state government was paying Rs. 2.5 lakh per acre as opposed to the developers who were offering somewhere between Rs. 20 lakh and 30 lakh, while the market rate was much so higher. But later, it turned out that whole land acquisition process, was to facilitate realtors acquire land at cheaper rates. Their main allegations in the case that hundreds of acres acquired from innocent farmers at lower rates for public purpose was ultimately licensed to the real estate companies.
