Indu Bai & Ors.  V.  State Of Telangana & Ors, Civil Appeal No. 483 Of 2020, Arising Out Of Slp (Civil) No. 2186 Of 2020 [Cc No. 12379 Of 2016]- January 21, 2020.

The bench comprising of Hon’ble Justice L. Nageswara Rao and Hon’ble Justice Hemant Gupta pronounced the Judgment on the appeal against a common order passed by the High Court of Judicature for the States of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

The brief fact of the case is that the appellant claims to be a pre-partition tenant of a land situated in village Poppalguda, Ranga Reddy District. They claimed patta. Also they contended to stop their right to possession, from being jeopardized. They filed miscellaneous application for claiming the same.

The chief issues in this case are Whether the appellants can claim patta? Whether they can stop their right to possession from being jeopardized?

The court observed that appellants have neither invoked writ jurisdiction nor any other competent forum to redress their grievances for vesting of land. The appellants have not invoked the writ jurisdiction for redressal of their grievances. Based upon the above observations the two writ petitions 29274/2014 and 29436/2014 were set aside. The matter is to be remitted to HC. The appellants are at their liberty to invoke jurisdiction and redress their grievances in accordance with law.

The court thus held that the Central Government has transferred land to State Government and state can allot land for settlement of displaced persons.
