On the basis of these parameters the Hon'ble High Court have declared the Act to be ultra virus on 14th March, 2007. Since, this issue was being canvassed by various High Courts, the Hon'ble Supreme Court gave an Interim Order that those states where the High Courts have given judgment in favor of the petitioner, no tax would be collected. In the mean time the Haryana Government has repealed the LADT Act and introduced another Act by the name of 'Entry Tax' on the same lines. That Act was also been held ultra vires by the High Court. However, on prudence basis, the liability has been fully provided for. The order of Punjab and Haryana High Court and other judgments of all the Courts of India have been long pending. The State Governments have requested the Hon'ble Supreme Court that it is very difficult for them to run the Government.

On 30th October, 2009, the Hon'ble Supreme Court have directed that 1/3rd of the liability is to be paid by all the assesses whose cases are pending in the High Courts. As, at present, there is no Act either LADT/Entry Tax prevalent in Haryana State, no tax is being collected from the assesses however undertaking have given by assesses that in case they lose they will make the payment. As such on prudence basis, full liability has been provided for. In the meantime, i.e. on 16.04.2010 the Entry Tax matters of the states have been referred to a larger 9- Judges Constitutional Bench of the Supreme Court, where the judgment of 7-Judges Constitutional Bench past 49 years ago would be revisited. Constitution Bench has not been constituted as yet and the status of the case is as it is and at present no tax is being collected/paid in Haryana.
