Succession in case of small grants for service to be performed. Paragraph 159 of the Land Administration Manual. Petty grants of an annual value not exceeding Rs.20 for service to be rendered to village communities, should not be split up but should be held from generation to generation by one individual only, who should ordinarily be the eldest heir of the deceased incumbent. If there are good reasons, however, the local authorities should arrange to supersede him provided this is agreed to by those interested in the service to be rendered.
Existing joint holders should not be disturbed but advantage should be taken of future successions to get rid of the joint enjoyment.
