Sub:     Disposal of inferior evacuee land – Court decrees about correction of revenue record.

According to the policy laid down by the State Government in its Memorandum No. 7841-JN(IV)-61/2699, dated 253/7/78-LR-1/14529 dated 10th July 1979, there were to determine the eligibility of a person to whom the inferior evacuee land could be transferred. One is the lease given by the Government and other is the fact of continuous cultivating possession from Rabi 1976. This continuous possession is determined from the revenue record of khasra girdawari and jamabandi. It has been brought to the notice of Government that certain persons get collusive decrees from the Civil Courts regarding correction of khasra Girdawari and claim their right to the transfer of inferior evacuee land or their favour on the basis of such collusive decrees.

       It is clarified that before the ownership is transferred to the occupant Government continues to be the owner of the inferior evacuee land. Any decree regarding correction of the khasra girdawari of inferior evacuee land without making the government a party is not binding on the Government. Such decrees sheets be ignored while determining/eligibility of a person for transfer of land. Similarly any order of a Revenue Officer for correction for a khasra girdawari of such lands which were obtained on application forms after 10th July 1979 may also be ignored for purpose of eligibility for transfer. If necessary, the Civil Court can also be approached for annulment of such Khasra Girdawari.
