Value of land is better known by a person who does not own it. Sometimes though a person owns land in papers but he cannot enjoyed its fruits due to legal hur¬dles or otherwise. The State of Jammu and Kashmir, which enjoys the special status provided by Constitution of India, has several unique statutes governing the land and revenue fields. Due to partition of State, there are several complicated matters related to migrants and evacuees which are still pending in courts. The land and revenue matters relating to agrarian reforms, acquisition, evacuees, etc. are not easy to handle without proper study of statutes concerned. The Adjudicating Officers feel very awkward situation when they have no update material to handle a particular case.
On the same roadmap, revenue plays an important role in infrastructure of a State. A State needs its own Road, Power, Finance, etc. structures to look after its citi¬zens. To collect revenue, a thorough and accurate knowl¬edge of statute is must, in the absence of which a State suffers loss. Ignorance of law is no excuse.
From a very long time, it was the need of the State to have a handy manual on land laws. In this pretext, we are highly pleased to this MANUAL OF LAND AND REVENUE LAWS IN JAMMU AND KASHMIR in bulky 4 volumes to study each and every aspect for dealing with con¬cerned cases. This manual is arranged alphabetically and notifications are given at the end i.e. in the 4th Volume.
Nothing has been spared to amend this book upto December, 2010 as all the Notifications from 1896-till date have been published to have a ready reference on the subject. Alphabetical index of notifications has been given separately in the book. Exhaustive case law has been annexed with related statute to understand the legal scope of that statute. This manuals seeks to be a part of each and every library of the readers concerned.
Includes Central Acts And Rules as applicable to J&K with case Laws alongwith Alians, Annexures, Resolutions, Notifications, Circulars, Cabinet/Council/Govt. Orders, SROs, etc. in 4 Vols.
