The Supreme Court had observed that no party can take benefit of any particular mistake that may be committed by a court while it passes an order. The appellants in a case had placed a sense of reliance on a 2014 judgment given by Allahabad High Court in the case of Mangu vs. State of Uttar Pradesh. In the aforementioned case, the High Court had passed a judgment in order to do away with a bunch of appeals, which were greatly relevant to the many land acquisitions that had taken place in 1992.
However, of the appeals related to acquisitions of 1977, one got mistakenly tagged along with other appeals in relation to the 1992 acquisitions. Before the Supreme Court, the various appellants greatly relied on this provision granted by the High Court, particularly for the 1977 case.
However, the Supreme Court noted that the case pertaining to the 1977 acquisition got tagged along with the other numerous cases with regards to the 1992 acquisition. Nobody pointed out the fact to the High Court in relation to this. Therefore, the High Court had normally enhanced the compensation for all cases anyway, without even noticing the presence of the already present case of the1977 acquisition in the batches of appeals.
