Land acquired by collector
Question From: Civil Law
I am resident of a district dominated by tribals in Maharashtra. My grand father purchased a land from tribal member on consideration in year 1963. We have been on possession of the land till year 1982 but collector of our district sent a notice for acquisition of that land and acquired it without giving due price of the land. No other tribal is ready to buy this from the government so I filed a case for regaining of it from the government. My request is rejected by collector and that property vested in government. What should I do for getting it back ?
According to section section 4 and 5-A of Maharashtra Restoration of land to Scheduled Tribes Act 1974 a land purchased from tribal owner by a non tribal between 1957 to 1974 is entitled to restore in the tribal person by the order of collector.
Collector is empowered under said act to acquire the land and restore in in the name of previous owner if that owner is no more alive or reluctant to take it collector may transfer it to any other tribal person of the area. If no person comes forward or not interested to take it, land shall be vested in the State Government.
Present land owner is entitled to get compensation about 48 times of the land revenue fixed for the land. That compensation shall be paid by the government if land is vested in government.
You have no right to regain that land except compensation. your any litigation towards that purpose will not be maintainable. So forget that land because no rule is made in this regard i.e. to re transfer to the person to whom it is acquired.

Sub-section 4 of Section 125 crpc enumerates that if a wife without any reasonable cause refuses to live with her husband, she is not entitled to maintenance. The court before granting an order of maintenance must examine the fact of refusal to live with the husband.
The land revenue record shows the land as inalienable when the tenure holder or owner of the land has no right to transfer the land. Generally, government land or patta land is made inalienable because actual right vested in the government. The tenure holder has the right to cultivate the land and enjoy the usufruct.
Section 154 CrPC does not mandate that only victim can lodge the FIR. Any person can register the FIR if he knows that a cognisable offence has been committed. In Prakash Singh vs State of Punjab, the Supreme Court held that police officer could not make an inquiry about genuineness of FIR.
