(a) the amount by which the value of the land has increased by reason of the improvement;
(b) the condition of the improvement at the date of the determination of the value thereof and the probable duration of its effect;
(c) the labour and capital involved in the making of the improvement; and
(d) the advantages secured by the under-raiyat in consideration of the improvement made by him.
(3) In any case in which compensation is payable to an under-raiyat under this section, the competent authority may direct that-

(b) any arrear of rent due by the under-raiyat to the raiyat and the costs, if any, awarded to the raiyat shall be adjusted against the compensation.
