AT JAIPUR BENCH, JAIPUR
S.B. CIVIL WRIT PETITION NO. 5513/1996
BALDEV SINGH Vs. THE BOARD OF REVENUE, AJMER & ORS.
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE K.S. RATHORE
Mr. H.S. Khandelwal for
Mr. M.M. Ranjan for the petitioner.
Mr. B.S. Chhaba, Dy. GA for the State.
Brief facts of the case are that the petitioner's land bearing Khasra No. 1460 situated at village Keshorai Patan, District Bundi was the
Government land and the petitioner encroached over the
Government land and, therefore, a notice dated 16.10.95 under Section 22 of Rajasthan Colonization Act, 1954
(for short 'the Act of 1954') was issued to the petitioner by the respondent No.4, the Tehsildar,
Keshorai Patan, by which the petitioner was asked to remove encroachment from the Government land. Since the petitioner has not removed encroachment, crop of the pedi was seized and penalty was imposed upon the petitioner.
Again the petitioner encroached over the
Government land and he was asked to remove his possession but the same was not removed and, therefore, notice to this effect was issued and the Tehsildar,
Keshorai Patan vide its order impugned dated 18.10.95, awarded a penalty of Rs. 394/- and also awarded civil imprisonment for 30 days and for compliance of the order, the order was sent to the Police Station
Against the said impugned order dated 18.10.95, the petitioner preferred an appeal before the
Revenue Appellate Authority, Kota and the Revenue
Appellate Authority vide its order dated 16.02.96, while upholding the order passed by the Tehsildar dated 18.10.95, dismissed the appeal filed by the petitioner.
The order dated 18.10.95 passed by the
Tehsildar and the order dated 16.02.96 passed by the
Revenue Appellate Authority was challenged by the petitioner by way of filing second appeal before the
Board of Revenue, Ajmer and the Board of Revenue also not interfered with the concurrent findings given by the Tehsildar and the Revenue Appellate Authority and dismissed the second appeal filed by the petitioner vide its order impugned dated 15.03.96.
I have heard rival submissions of the respective parties and have also gone through the orders impugned dated 18.10.95, 16.02.96 and 15.03.96 passed by the Tehsildar, Revenue Appellate Authority and the Board of Revenue respectively.
I find no illegality or error apparent on the face of the record as concurrent findings are given by all the Courts below, which require no interference.
The petitioner is not able to make out any case which requires any interference by this Court while exercising power under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.
Consequently, the writ petition fails and the same is accordingly dismissed.
The interim order dated 18.11.96 granted by this Court stands rejected. The stay application also stands dismissed.
