delivery on his behalf, the State Government shall cause a notice declaring that
such premises are released from requisition to be affixed on some conspicuous
part of such premises and publish the notice in the Official Gazette.

Gazette, the premises specified in such notice shall cease to be subject to
requisition on and from the date of such publication and be deemed to have been
delivered to the person entitled to possession thereof; and the State Government
shall not be liable for any compensation or other claim in respect of such
premises for any period after the said date.
