Lapse of term-expired assignments

The Collector is competent to enforce the lapse of term-expired assignments, to arrange for the assignment of the land and to determine the amount to be treated as khalsa in future.  His discretion to resume, of his own authority, assignments of which the terms has expired is, however, not unfettered.  In certain cases of assignments for a life or lives, the original order of release provides for reconsideration on the grant falling in.  Grants on account of services rendered in 1848 or during the Mutiny, originally made for a term, may not be resumed without reference to the Financial Commissioner.  The reasons for showing liberality in such cases are explained in paragraph 187 of the Land Administration Manual.  It must be remembered that special liberality has been enjoined for grants to religious and charitable institutions (paragraph 191 of the Land Administration Manual).  When a grant made for the support of a religious institution has been confirmed for the life of the incumbent, and would  lapse on death, the Collector may, on his decease, refrain from giving effect to the lapse, and report the case for final orders, and shall adopt this course if he considers that the institution is valued by the people, and the resumption would cause dissatisfaction.  When it appears to the Collector to be undesirable to enforce lapses, a recommendation for the reconsideration of the original order should be made.
