By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangalore : Historical and legally enforceable revenue maps are printed by Commissioner, Survey Settlement and Land Records,K.R.Circle, Bangalore and these maps have different Topographical Symbols for tanks and hilly areas and these maps are only legally valid and enforceable ..In the similar way Commissioner, Survey Settlement and Land Records have issued orders on 22-08-2006 have different Topographical Symbols for tanks and hilly areas . Off late few officers in Survey Settlement and Land Records have started without authority of law removing hilly areas symbols in revenue village maps and in place printing tanks symbols and convert areas or gomals into tanks and harassing the farmers .The rvenue miniter is requested is requested to look into the matters and government need to issue orders to follow the orders of Commissioner, Survey Settlement and Land Records have issued orders on 22-08-2006 correct the revenue maps and ask them tonly supply original maps as British times as they are enforceable as per law and not fabricated one by removing original symbols..

Controversy need to be put to rest .As per authenticated revenue maps printed by British government and as per survey done in 1886and as per Topographical Symbols that were operational since British period Survey No. 211 of Banaswadi village is hilly area or Gomal as per original maps printed and published by commissioner of Revenue survey and land records department in British period .BDA did nothing to solve the problem for last 4 years .The BDA need to collect the original maps printed and published by commissioner of Revenue survey and land records department in British period and find out whether really a tank was in existence Survey No. 211 of Banaswadi village, as several court cases are pending and few are won by original land owners in Karnataka high court.

It is interested to note that RFA filed by BDA in RFA 79/2006 ORDER DATED 7-02-2014 was dismissed by Karnataka high court and original owners have won the case and Thasildar is duty bound to make mutations in the name of LRs of one Jayaramareddy since deceased as 211/Pis not a tank as per authenticated revenue maps printed by British government and as per survey done in 1886and as per Topographical Symbols that were operational since British period Survey No. 211 of Banaswadi village is hilly area or Gomal as per original maps printed and published by commissioner of Revenue survey and land records department in British period . And it has come to knowledge of this reporter that Topographical Symbols are operational since British period and are printed as such during those times only and survey department is claimingthat they are operational from 20-05-2006 which is false in-correct and misleading. For gomal areas and kharab areas represented as hilly areas in Topographical Symbols are misconstrued as tanks whose symbol is different from hilly areas as indicated in Topographical Symbols as such then thasildar has rightly stated that there were no tanks in Banaswadi village as per Topographical Symbols that were operational since British period. Commissioner, Survey Settlement and Land Records,K.R.Circle, Bangalore should take task to its officers who are misleading the people of Karnataka. They should only demarcate tanks only as per Topographical Symbols that were operational since British period.

Let the Thasildar find out the truth .There may be mistake committed by someone but the thasildar must know there is limitation law exists. He cannot just act like that and issue notice to individual's .Thasildar should have issue notice to BDA and studied the original survey maps .It is not a jungle raj. It is most unfortunate .If the same thing have been done by a private builder hue and cry would have taken place .But nobody is talking about BDA .4 years BDA did nothing to solve the problem.A legal tangle between BDA and sister agency Karnataka Public Land Corporation has made life miserable for over a hundred site owners at HRBR Layout. Their vacant plots have been fenced off by KPLC and they have no idea when the row will be resolved and now on January 3 evening, 150 residents of I Block were stunned when a notice from the tahasildar of Bengaluru East taluk ordered them to vacate their houses within two days as they were built on an encroached tank bed.This problem has erupted its ugly head long back but BDA slep on the matter for years and waited revenue department to hit them on their head. It's appalling that residents of HRBR Layout are being subjected to unnecessary stress through eviction notices and BDA did nothing to resolve the issue . If the authorities wake up after close to three decades and discover that houses in the layout have been built on an encroached lake bed, it's a telling comment on the inefficiencies in the system. Is limitation does not apply to revenue department The least they could have done is consulted the Bangalore Development Authority which formed this layout in the first place and figured out how to proceed in the matter and studied the documents properly . The government must step in and provide the documents and stay the eviction orders first before anything is done in this issue as limitation bars the illegal act of the thasildar.
