Acquisition of land under Land Acquisition Act 1894 by the Central Government would include acquisition of mines and minerals under the land acquired unless a statement as contemplated by section 3(1) of Land Acquisition (Mine) Act 1885 is included in the declaration under Section 6 of Land Acquisition Act 1894.

Acquisition of Land for quarrying purposes.--Railway Administrations while acquiring land for quarrying purposes should ensure that the State Governments do not insert such declarations as would deny quarrying rights to the Railway. Legally once such declaration is inserted, the State Governments are entitled to claim royalty.
