HYDERABAD: In the wake of the Miyapur land scam, the state Cabinet on Saturday amended the Record of Rights Act with regard to registration of Jagir lands and other government lands in the state in order to ban registration of Jagir and other government lands in the name of private persons.
Four ordinances including making amendments to RoR Act were promulgated immediately after the state Cabinet approved them.
The Cabinet took some key decisions with regard to land registrations across the state. There will be a single passbook for land, even if the lands are changed. That means, there will be only one pattadar passbook for one land. The Act has been amended to ensure that pattadar passbooks are not issued to government lands.
“We have also cancelled the rights of sub-registrar through the ordinance,” deputy chief minister K Srihari told reporters after the Cabinet meeting.
The mutation of records will also take place within 15 days. Mutation is the change of title ownership from one person to another when the property is sold or transferred, which normally takes several months in the present system. Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao discussed at length about the ongoing practices and suggested suitable changes.
In fact, by the virtue of abolition of Jagirs, rights over all the lands of the Jagir, Samsthan, Maktha and Imam stood vested with the state. However, some Jagair and government lands were being registered by the registrars in the state, which is the origin for the Miyapur land scam in the state capital.
Following this, in order to ban registration of Jagir and other government lands in the name of private persons, the state Cabinet approved “Telangana Rights in Land and Pattadar Pass Books (Amendment) Ordinance, 2017”. Immediately after the Cabinet meeting, the ordinance was promulgated by the governor.
The Jagir, Samsthan, Maktha, Paigha, Inam and other lands, relate to grants obtained by former Hyderabad state. However, every grant made by the ruler was only for the life time.
Later, the rights on these lands will be vested with the government. Meanwhile, now the transfer of title deed or registration of these lands was banned by the state government through the ordinance.
