My father refused compensation at that time which was Rs. 5 per Sq.yard. Is it possible for me to now claim compensation Actually your father did a mistake by refusing the compensation made by the government. He should have accepted the same and should have gone for enhancement of the same through court of law. However, if your father is alive now, he can apply for compensation and can quote the present market rate as per the latest land acquisition law, let the authority grant or refuse the same, you can challenge their refusal on the basis of the new law. Let the court decide whether you are eligible or not hence dont remain silent thinking that it is barred by limitation, get some concrete reply from court and then decide about continuing it or giving it up.
