Question: New khatauni after acquisition of land by the state government is possible. Can State Govt get name of individual changed in Khatauni in case the land has been acquired by the state. Land vests in the state but Compensation has not been paid and possession not taken? On what basis a state/ an authority and with what evidence name is changed in such a case? State Dept Application to Tehsildar must contain some evidence.
Asked from: Uttar Pradesh
After the acquisition the state government becomes the owner of land. Therefore, after the acquisition a new khatauni is prepared by the collector. If there is any mistake in khatauni the collector shall direct the Tehsildar to do correction.
If you did not receive compensation then you should file a representation to the collector and demand the payment of compensation with interest. It is the responsibility of the collector to deposit the amount of compensation in the account of the tenure holder. Failing which you should file a writ petition in the High Court.
