Hello All, There are couple of residence house near by a railway track, and the community people are using the side of the railway track as there main road. The railway authorities are warning that they will close this road as that land belongs to railway.
the people living their don't have any other road which connects to the amin road . what should they do ?
Normally when a property is being purchased, the buyer shall certainly verify the approach roads and other minimum amenities that are available to the property to be acquired. If at the time of buying these points are not verified, at a later date, Railway authorities cannot be blamed.Railway authorities shall be perfectly within their right if they close the access through the train tracks, which is ultimately for the safety of the public. Therefore, the owners of the houses should try to find an alternative path for using as an approach to the nearest road.
The residents of the two houses are not having any rights to use the Railway property as Road. Generally, civil constructions are not permitted by sanctioning authorities without clearance from Railways. When you do not have such rights to claim and if the houses may be illegal/not approved constructions (as per Railway Act) explore alternates rather than fighting with a giant through courts. Think practically.
