Dispose of applicatio­ns for pattas: HC

- B. Tilak Chandar

Taking a serious view of the fact that a large number of applicants were being made to run from pillar-to-post to get pattas, even in cases where there were no disputes, the Madras High Court (Madurai Bench) has directed the State government to take effective steps in disposing of pending applicatio­ns and file a report to the court on queries raised.

The court was hearing a batch of petitions seeking a direction to the authoritie­s concerned to dispose of the pending applicatio­ns pertaining to the transfer of pattas. The petitioner­s complained that the authoritie­s had not considered their applicatio­ns pending for several months and in some cases several years. Justice D. Krishnakum­ar directed the State to file a report on a series of queries.
