  1. 2020 APEX COURT [16]-The settled factors shall not be allowed to be unsettled or adjudicated further after one hundred years.- Correction in revenue entry  as Bandh instead of pond – consolidated officer ordered for correction – Suit also decreed against the govt. But the High court order for fresh enquiry about the issue of gant to the Grandfather of the appellants which was issued 100 years back – Apex court held that whether the property in question was a public property or not. Such order of the High Court is not only illegal but also arbitrary inasmuch as it is already concluded, as mentioned supra, that the appellants’ grand father was rightly allotted the property and his family continues in possession of the property. Moreover, the validity of the grant made in the year 1919, shall not be allowed to be re-adjudicated after a century. The settled factors shall not be allowed to be unsettled or adjudicated further after one hundred years. In view of the same, the impugned judgments of the High Court stand set aside. The appeals are allowed.
