I had purchased 1500 Sqft (second buyer) of site in a layout carved out of a land belonging to a gentleman in 2004 and built house in 2008. The layout was formed by the gentleman in 1995.
This man had got the land under Tenancy Act in 1982 and subsequently got approvals from the relevant authorities to form the layout in 1995 and then sold to individual buyers. Later in 2001, their family disputed the sale from the original owner and then under court, compromise was arrived at they were alloted 4 site and compensation. in this regard, their entire family signed the agreement saying that they will interefere the peaceful possession on the buyers.
However their 2nd and 3rd generation family members (who too have signed the document which is validated by court of law).
in the month of August, 2012, the grandson of the original owner has appealed to Revenue department in Bangalore that they want the land back under PTCL act. However, the land they got was under Tenancy act. Till now, there is no mention that either their earlier ownership in any records shows that they are SC/ST.
They have also asked the revenue department to alineate Tenancy act with PTCL as they belong to SC/ST.
Want to check:
a. If the land is approved by relevant authorities can these approvals will become invalid?
b. Despite the compromise formula arrived in the court of law stands invalid due to this?
c. Do we stand chances of losing out the sites? (As the layout formed was the owner of the land and we all purchased the pieces of land for constructing houses).
It would be of great help if you can provide inputs in this regard.
