1) for determination of market value under section 26 sales value recorded is taken into account . in your case market value has been correctly determined 

2) the multiplication factor is  based on distance from urban area the market value is multiplied by factor of 1 to 2 . in your case it is taken as 1.25

3) further assets attached to land are to be determined as provided in section 29 of the act . in your case 
land acquisition officer  has failed to take into account said fact

4) the solatium at 100% has been correctly calculated as it is equivalent to one hundred percent of the market value of land 

5) the final amount to be awarded to you for your land would taken into account market value of land , multiplied by factor of 1 to 2 depending upon distance from urban area, plus value of assets attached to land and solatium determined under the first schedule

1. The multiplication factor varies depending upon the distance of your acquired land from the urban area,

2. Ascertain the distance of your said land from the urban area and the multiplication factor fixed by the Govt. for the area where your land is situated for paying the compensation while acquiring your land,

3. The solatium has been correctly fixed at 100% for acquiring your land by the Govt.
