We are having our ancestral property in Uttarakhand which is being given on contract to the tenant . He gives us payment on half yearly basis. There is no legal/any document that states that we have given the land to him to do farming and then give us the decided amount every year. He has been raising the crops on our land for the past 10-12 years without any formal contract. Now my question is that we have heard that after some years the tenant gets the right over the land. Is it true? The land is in my mother's name which has been verified at the tehsil but is there any law that gives the power to the tenant to exercise his right over the land?
