The New Indian Express - - CHENNAI -

Chennai: The Madras High Court has di­rected the dis­trict rev­enue of­fi­cer in Kancheep­u­ram to con­sider a plea to de­clare cer­tain land in Thazham­pur vil­lage in Kanchipu­ram as be­long­ing to Sri Amer­swara Swamy Tem­ple and Sri Sa­davarthy Choul­try in Amar­a­vathy in Andhra Pradesh. Jus­tice S Vaidyanathan is­sued the di­rec­tive on Septem­ber 14 while dis­pos­ing of a writ pe­ti­tion from the tem­ple and the choul­try. The bench di­rected the tem­ple ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer N Srini­vasa Reddy to ap­pear be­fore the DRO on Oc­to­ber 6 to de­cide on the is­sue of dec­la­ra­tion of land be­long­ing to the tem­ple as ‘Anad­hi­nam’ by the State. The judge said the is­sues raised in the pe­ti­tion need to be probed in de­tail be­fore the is­su­ing ry­ot­wari patta as prayed for by the pe­ti­tioner tem­ple. With­out delv­ing into the mer­its of the mat­ter, more par­tic­u­larly the fact that the mat­ters were pend­ing be­fore the Andhra Pradesh High Court and the Supreme Court, the judge said he di­rected the DRO to con­sider the re­quest of the pe­ti­tioner tem­ple based on the rep­re­sen­ta­tions sent in 2004, 2008 and 2013 and pass ap­pro­pri­ate or­ders af­ter giv­ing an op­por­tu­nity of hear­ing to the pe­ti­tioner tem­ple and any other party con­cerned and dis­pose of those rep­re­sen­ta­tions on merit and in ac­cor­dance with law on or be­fore Novem­ber 30.
