Tindivanam Court – Abri/Ami/Evergreen land grab – On the 2nd of November, the case regarding the contested plots at both Abri/Ami corner and inside Evergreen was heard.

Meanwhile, Michael B updated the documents of his land opposite Evergreen, which was part of the land under contestation. In the update, it was shown that the sub division, surveys and registrations were wrong, which in turn clarified the false registrations of PKS on the Auroville land. The Tindivanam DRO had sent a notice ordering the cancellation of these wrongly registered documents, purchased by PKS. At the hearing in Tindivanam, PKS claimed not to be aware of the cancellation, so the case was postponed until Tuesday, 8th November 2022.
