- Govt has no right on title
- Settle border dispute with Kondapur
- Landmark judgement by HC
- Relief for thousands of property owners
Hyderabad: High Court of Telangana delivered a judgement on a dispute regarding Hafeezpet survey No. 80 which is said to be landmark one as it gave relief to thousands of property owners. The judgement says the land does not belong to the government and directed authorities to mutate lands immediately in favour of individuals or companies and allow for registrations. If ay further doubts arise, they are permitted to conduct surveys in Survey No. 80 according to wish of property owners, judgement further said.
This judgement is a slap in the face of Telangana government as it repeatedly attempted to claim ownership of land in particular survey No. 80 with series of cases in HC which court felt is a nagging move by Govt.
Division bench directs officials
Division Bench comprising Justice M.S. Ramachandra Rao and T. Amarnath Goud directed concerned authorities to do mutation of properties of individuals or companies who are on hold for the past few years and grant permission to those who want to go for construction. Until now, construction was not allowed by authorities claiming that it was a government land.
Residents expressed happiness at the judgement of HC. They said that the government did not bother to file counter affidavit for years thus causing hurdle for justice. High Court further said that the State’s claim to the lands covered by the preliminary decree in CS 14 of 1958 including Hafeezpet village has failed and at this point of time it is not open to the State of Telangana to put up any claim to the land in Hafeezpet village. HC also directed Govt. officials to solve the long pending border dispute between Hafeezpet and Kondapur with a detailed survey.
Wakf Board Vs Sai Pawan Estates
A judgment on a dispute related to the ownership of 50 acres of land between Wakf board and Sai Pawan Estates was also delivered. It was pending for 38 years. HC dismissed the claims of Wakf board on the ownership of 50 acres as division bench said that as per rules the wakf created before the commencement of wakf act 1995 and should be registered within three months after the Act came into force.
Court pointed out that it was registered under the Act in 2013 though wakf claimed to have taken the possession of Hafeezpet land in 1955.
