Urban Land Ceiling Land..Land declared surplus but possession not taken. Now you can keep the land.


Urban Land Ceiling Act is repealed before 15 years.

In many cases, Govt. Passed declarations of surplus land and became Owner of the Land.

But due to certain reasons, Govt did nothing except taking possession on paper. Now it is held that the Govt can no more get possession of this land.

The proceedings have abated. Govt has lost ownership of this land also by not taking steps in time.

Merely vesting of land not enough. The Govt must have taken actual possession before the ceiling Act was abolished.
