Hello this is vikash, i am facing an issue so need your help. Actually my family bought a land (only we have done agreement to land owner, given some part of money), now we are making a house on it, local villagers came and told that this is land of temple so you have to pay money to temple. They made a signed application where my big bro also signed and land owner also signed. Now, we were decided to pay money to temple but block co sent a notice named my big bro, bro met to him he told that the land is of Government, so my bro told that I am ready to pay all taxes, please make a receipt. But he was making fool to us 3 months gone he didn't taken action. And now villagers asking for money and trying to fight. What should we do suggest me, it's urgent
You have to follow some procedure before purchasing of a land.
Whether it is free from encumbrance?
You have to apply for encumbrance certificate from sub-registry. You can know easily about litigations, owner name etc. EC should apply for 30 years.
Who is the actual owner of the land?
If you have verify RoR at Tahasil you can know. Before purchase of a land you have to check the RoR. Through these two procedure, you can know everything about the land. In RoR the nature of the land has mention.
By these procedure you can know who is the actual owner of the land Temple / Govt./ private person. You should take steps for free from litigations or tensions before complete of you house.
