Correction in revenue record

Name missing in the new land record (Jamabandi). We had land in Village: Pilani, Tesh: Kalanaur, Dist: Rohtak, Haryana. I want to get a correction in the revenue record. The property is in the name of my Grandfather (Prabhu). We had total land in three different khewat/khatoni, but the issue is that out of these 3-numbers my Grandfather name was missed form one khewat/khatoni number during record updated from Urdu to Hindi in 1958-59. I checked my Grandfather name was available till revision 1943-44 record.

It seems it is a departmental human mistake during record update. I checked with village Patwari, he asked if there is a mismatch in the current record I can update, but its old case, so it’s out of my scope. So please suggest me how I can get update this record.

You have two options to update old revenue record. Firstly you can file a complaint before Tehsildar along with all the history of the concerned land. By the revenue, code Tehsildar is empowered to correct each revenue record which is transferred to him after completion of chakbandi or consolidation. Tahsildar brings a report from village patwari towards the land then he shall correct the revenue record on the report of patwari. All the papers are kept appropriately in triplicate.

Secondly, you can file declaration suit before a court of small causes under section 9 of CPC and section 34 of specific relief act and make village Patwari, Tehsildar & Collector as opposite parties. The court will summon all the documents from the revenue department and declare the suit in your favour after that you can quickly get an amendment in the revenue record. This procedure will take 6 to 12 months to decide.
