Who will receive revenue of resumed assignments in jagir villages. In villages held entirely in jagir the revenue of the lapsed assignment will be payable to the jagirdar, except when the assignment was granted by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Maharaja Kharak Singh or Maharaja Sher Singh, or has been maintained by special order of Government after investigation in the jagir office of the Board of Administration.
Note:- (“Ambala Settlement reports Northern parganas, by Melvill, paragraph 322 and “Southern parganas” by Wynyard, paragraph 265.”)—The powers of jagirdars to resume revenue free holdings the continuance of which had not been guaranteed by a British officer, was recognised by the Board of Administration in October, 1851, and again in their letter no. 447, dated 13th February, 1852, to the Commissioner directing that all jagir estates should be brought under assessment. They directed that Government officers should not interfere with the free action of jagirdars in regard to the release or resumption of revenue-free land in their villages save where the order of a British officer may exist in favour of any party.
