the state cabinet approved a proposal to regularize land purchased without prior permission of the collector.
The procedure for the tenant to purchase the land is laid down in Sec. 32G of the bombay Tenancy and agricultural reform Act. It enjoins the Agricultural Land Tribunal constituted under Sec. 67 to publish a public notice calling upon the tenants, the landlords and any other interested person to appear before it on a speci- fied date. The Tribunal is also required to issue individual notices to the landlords and the tenants, and thereafter to decide the competing case.
Tenanted property (Kul Kayada) means your forefathers (ancestors) had leased /given the land to other persons to cultivate and in turn they were getting rent for it.
By going through the 7/12 extracts or the village land records, it is easy to find out the property details. In the 7/12 extracts, it is mentioned whether the property is affected by the kul kayada or your property was tenanted property. Tenanted property (kul Kayada) means your forefathers (ancestors) had leased /given the land to other persons to cultivate and in turn they were getting rent for it.
After Independence, various land reform acts were enacted for equitable distribution of the land and accordingly Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Land Act 1948 is one of them. The objective of the act is “land to the tillers”. Those persons who are lawfully cultivating the land of others are considered as a deemed tenant under the act. The said act declared 1 April 1957 as a tillers day and persons who are tenant or cultivating the land of others on 1 April 1957 (tillers day)are deemed to have purchased land. Thus, Kul Kayada is a provision of protection given to the tenants of the land under the Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Act 1948. U/s 43 of the said Act any land acquired by a tenant shall not be entitled to be sold, transferred without the prior approval of the Collector.
