Madras HC raps officials over pending patta requests
The high court in Madras noted that the officials were unable to address the petitions, which had led people to go from pillar to pillar and the courts. “Patta is one of the primary documentary evidence to assert land ownership. Pattas may also be used in a court of law to determine ownership rights. The judge then instructed the land administration commissioner to advise all county collectors to meet annually for the assessment, based on the guidelines of the government. The survey and settlement director shall also regularly hold review meetings and send the reports to the commissioner.
On the other hand, for disposition of on-line pattas applications, the commissioner or the collectors shall allocate zonal deputy tahsildars only. The tahsildar concerned shall regularly report to the picker on the delay for the disposal of the applications by officers in the first week of each month. The Collector shall seek an explanation from the officer concerned based on the tahsildar report on the delay. The collector shall begin disciplinary proceedings against the official for causing the delay if the reason is not sufficient
Furthermore, the judge ordered the commissioner to direct all collectors and revenue authorities to comply strictly with the above-mentioned instructions given by the Court to dispose of the demands within the time limit stated by the respective GOs.
