J. Mishra - Payment is under 31(1), deposit 31(2).
SD - Let me talk about the scheme of 31 of the old Act. Award is not a vested right. It’s just an offer. A person may accept or reject the offer.
Scheme: if the state wants to take land by Transfer of Property Act, then you get something in return - Money, land etc. That the collector is required by law to call for money and then offer the money. Regardless of whether reference made or not.
J. Bhat - So you offer and after that you take money.
