Visva Bharati Vs Amartya Sen: The land dispute between Nobel laureate Amartya Sen and Visva Bharati University seems to be heating up once again. Visva Bharati University has once again sent a notice to Amartya Sen. Visva Bharati University has asked Amartya Sen to vacate the house. The notice asked Amartya Sen, "Why shouldn’t you be evicted from the 13 decimal plot on which they are allegedly in illegal possession."
The university has given Amartya Sen till March 24 to respond to the notice. Apart from this, he has been asked to present the evidence in person or through a representative before the Joint Registrar of the Central University, Ashok Mahto, by March 29. Amartya Sen has also been asked to produce evidence in support of his claim that he is not in illegal possession of the plot.
Amartya Sen’s claim on land
The notice states, "If you and your authorized representative fail to appear on the said date, the matter may be decided ex parte." The university claims that Sen has 1.38 acres of land in the Santiniketan campus, which is more than his legal entitlement of 1.25 acres. Sen, on the other hand, claimed that most of the land he owned in the Santiniketan complex was bought by his father from the market while some other plots were taken on lease.
CM Mamta handed over the papers
Tell that Amartya Sen has not been able to receive the notice sent by Vishwa Bharati University, because he is living abroad. At the same time, his family members could not be contacted for their reaction on this. Earlier, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had met Amartya at Shanti Niketan. The Chief Minister had also handed over the documents related to land valuation to him. For this, CM Mamta herself went to BLRO office. After this he said, "People cannot be insulted like this." He warned of legal action.
