PATNA: Dis­posal of land dis­pute cases would gain more mo­men­tum with the land dis­pute tri­bunal all set to be­come op­er­a­tional early next month.

Sources said, the tri­bunal housed at 11, Polo Road, has been pro­vided with the nec­es­sary in­fra­struc­ture like rooms, staff and fur­ni­ture for the chair­per­son and mem­bers. The ju­di­cial body is headed by jus­tice (retd) Mridula Mishra while Ram Parvesh Sharma is its ju­di­cial mem­ber and Lal­lan Singh its ad­min­is­tra­tive mem­ber.

“The tri­bunal will be for­mally op­er­a­tional by early next month,” said a se­nior of­fi­cer in the land rev­enue depart­ment.

Of­fi­cials said, the tri­bunal would go a long way in dis­posal of land re­lated cases pend­ing at dif­fer­ent fo­rums, in­clud­ing the board of rev­enue and civil court.

In mid 2000, the Patna high court had di­rected the state gov­ern­ment to set up the tri­bunal, so that cases filed un­der rev­enue laws could be dis­posed of faster.

Un­der the Act, the tri­bunal will have pow­ers vested in the civil court un­der the code of civil pro­ce­dure, 1908.

Land re­lated cases have piled up in the state as the tri­bunal is yet to be­come op­er­a­tional.
