A division bench of the High Court on Tuesday stayed a single judge order that the registering officers across state should not refuse registration of lands only on the ground that they were included in the prohibitory lists, the re-settlement register (RSR) etc and they shall not insist on production of NOCs as a precondition for land registration.

The bench granted interim stay in a writ appeal by the state government challenging the single judge order. It adjourned the case for final hearing to April 15.

In Jan, the single judge allowed a batch of writ petitions by various individuals challenging rejection of their documents by sub-registrars and district registrars across the state on the ground that the RSR contains dots against the name of the owner, or the lands are assessed lands or belonged to religious or charitable institutions or local bodies. The judge specified several dos and don’ts for the authorities in respect of registration of land.

The single judge held that the court directions shall bind revenue authorities and registering officers and violation of the directions will be viewed as contempt of court.
