A person X originally in possession of temple inam land in Karnataka sells it to another person Y in 1940's. Now the successors of Y are cultivating the land with khata in their names. Does this transaction gets nullified in the current day and given back to the temple?
There are no information whether the land was converted to Freehold before the sale.
How to trace back the transactions to know whether permission was taken in 1940's. Encumbrance certificate gives that details? Or RTC or Mutation Register.
If the permission was not taken for sale in 1940's just in case, how to get a relief if the demand arises from local people that land be taken back to temple. Doesnt the provisions under Karnataka Land reforms act 1961 help? As it says the tenant who was in possession of land will be given with ownership in 1970's.
