2020[3] APHC 82 – LEASE OF sivoijam LAND ?

 In view of the G.O Ms.No.961 Revenue (Q) Department dated 02.08.1979, lessee is deemed to be continuing in possession of the property and when Joint Collector recommended to issue patta in favour of the petitioner regularizing his sivoijamadar occupation, the Tahsildar is not expected to identify the land for assignment to landless poor as house sites, without taking any steps under BSO 15 (2) of A.P Revenue Board Standing Orders by issuing A1 notice. Therefore, the proposed action to assign the land to landless poor without converting the land from poramboke to Assessed Waste Dry land and identification of the land is in utter violation of the direction issued by 3rd respondent dated 05.10.1998 and Chief Commissioner of Land Administration dated 06.05.2014. Hence, the proposed action of respondents to assign the land as house site granting pattas under the scheme “Navaratnalu-Pedalandariki Illu” is declared as illegal and arbitrary, since the order passed by 3rd respondent dated 05.10.1998 is still not reversed or set aside,  on the other hand, the Chief Commissioner of Land Administration in his letter vide Ref.No.B1/420/2014 dated 06.05.2014 directed to take appropriate steps on the direction issued by Joint Collector.
