Tata Motor's counsel Samaraditya Pal requests was denied by the Calcutta High court. Monday was the fourth day of hearing on the Tata Motors petition.

The counsel had requested the court to pass an interim order restraining the West Bengal Government to distribute to farmers in Singur land acquired to set up Tata's manufacturing unit.

He also argued that if the court did not serve an interim stay, the Tata Motors petition would virtually become meaningless.

Appearing for the West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation, Saktinath Mukherjee opposed Tata Motors' plea. He claimed that this was not possible when the opposite party was present in the court, and copies would have to be served to them also to implement the law.

In the meantime, the local administration -- Hooghly district administration-- started distributing the forms to the farmers of Singur who wanted to get back their land.

The Singur bill was passed on June 14 in the state assembly, the bill scrapped the Left Front government's deal with Tata Motors. The bill also has the provision to return the land to farmers.

After continuous protests in Singur by some local farmers, Tata Motors had abandoned its plans in 2008 to build a plant to make the world's cheapest cars in Bengal.

Finally automobile manufacturer, Tata Motors, shifted from Singur to Sanand (Gujarat).

In May 2011, Mamata Bannerjee ended the 34-year rule of Left parties by securing a land slide victory in the West Bengal assembly elections.
