—(1) On making an award under section 10, the Collector shall make a written offer of the compensation awarded by him to the persons interested entitled thereto according to the award, and shall pay it to them unless prevented by one or more of the contingencies mentioned in subsection (2).
(2) If they do not consent to receive it, or if there is no person competent to alienate the land, or if there is any dispute as to the title to receive the compensation or as to the apportionment of it, or if possession of the land has not been taken by the Collector, the Collector shall apply to the Registrar of the Supreme Court ex parte for an order to deposit the amount of the compensation in court, and, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the Rules of Court for the time being in force, the Registrar may make such an order except that any person admitted to be interested may receive such payment under protest as to the sufficiency of the amount.
(3) Notwithstanding subsection (1), no person who has received the amount otherwise than under protest shall be entitled to appeal to the Board under section 23.
(4) Nothing in this section shall affect the liability of any person, who may receive the whole or any part of any compensation awarded under this Act, to pay it to the person lawfully entitled to it.
(5) Notwithstanding anything in this section, the Collector, instead of awarding a money compensation in respect of any land, may enter into any arrangement with a person having a limited interest therein in such a way as may be equitable having regard to the interests of the parties concerned.
