Chapter VII. Lands Exempted from Chapter IV and VI (CNT Act 1908) – Excerpts

Chapter VII. Lands Exempted from Chapter IV and VI

All leases must be in writing; and, unless this condition is now complied with, landlords’ privileged lands are not exempted from the operation of the provisions and Raiyati interests will accrue to the cultivators of such lands, if they are Raiyats.
With regard to the class of lands, no Raiyat status can be obtained in them by a cultivator, however long his possession may be. They are the Manjhihas and Bethkheta lands surveyed and recorded under the Chota Nagpur Tenures Act, and are at the absolute disposal of the Zamindar. If, however, in the case of a tenancy of the class of lands (landlords’ privileged lands), the cultivators did not hold under a lease at the time of the inception of his tenancy, the accrual of occupancy or non-occupancy rights will not be barred merely because the landlord has taken a Kabulyat for a term at some period during the continuance of the tenancy.
