The Tata Group faces the prospect of losing control over a 942-acre tea estate in Karnataka’s Kodagu district, as the state government prepares to hand the lush-green plantation to the forest department in accordance with a local court judgement.
Tata Coffee’s petition to get the description of the land reversed to ‘redeemed sagu’ in revenue records from its 2008 entry as ‘forest’ was dismissed with cost earlier this month by senior civil judge Lokesha MG at Virajpet.
“The land is not under lease anymore. The RTC (records of rights, tenancy & crops) reflects the change, and we will formally hand over the land to the forest department on Monday,” Kodagu deputy commissioner BC Satheesha told ET.
