Sub:     Allotment of land in the name of dead persons.



According to para 19 Chapter III of the Land Resettlement Manual the allotment of land to the individuals are to be made not on the basis of orally verified claims but on the basis of copies of jamabandis received from Pakistan. It has, however, been noticed that in the past allotment in some cases were made in the name of the deceased persons on the basis of the copies of jamabandis received from Pakistan and possession of the Property transferred to the person claiming to be their heirs without obtaining any legal proof.

In order to restrict the chances of unauthorized allotments it has been decided that in future before making allotment in the name of the deceased claimants, the Managing Officers should satisfy themselves that the person(s) claiming the allotment, is/are the legal heir(s) of the deceased and is/are the rightful person(s) to receive allotment.
