The Joint Secretary, Board of Revenue Vs. K.R. Venkatarama Ayyar

Court : Chennai

Decided on : Mar-20-1950

Reported in : AIR1950Mad738; (1950)IIMLJ213

horwill, j.1. we are here concerned with a reference made by the board of revenue under section 57, stamp act ii [2] of 1899 on a question of the stamp duty payable on a settlement deed.2. it is conceded that the document contains terms which make it a settlement deed and that for purposes of stamp duty it should be treated as such. under article 58, stamp act (schedule 1), the duty is to be the same as for a bond for a sum equal to the amount or 'value of the property settled as set forth in such settlement.' the real value of the property is admitted by the settlor to be rs. 2 lakhs; and since it is subject to a mortgage of one lakh of rupees, the value of the equity of redemption would be at least one lakh of rupees. the revenue authorities value it at rs. 1,59,300, the settlor did not in so many terms purport to give the real value of the property; because if he gave a false value, he would be liable to prosecution. so he tried to guard himself by saying, 'value for purposes of stamp and registration, rs. 3000'. he argued before the revenue authorities, as he did here, that he was entitled to put any notional value on the property. since however it was clear from the document itself that the property was worth agreat deal more than rs. 3000, the matter was referred by the registrar to the collector and by the collector to the board of revenue, which body, we are told, directed that the instrument should be registered and that proceedings should be taken against the .....

orderviswanatha sastri, j.1. these three civil revision petitions arise out of three suits instituted in the court of the district munsif of tenali, by the head of the uttaradi mutt as trustee of a religious endowment, for the recovery of lands in the possession of the defendants in the respective suits. the averments in the pleadings, the issues raised and the evidence adduced ate common to the three suits which were tried together and decided by a common judgment, both original and appellate. the lands in suit are situate in devarapalle agraharam. the plaintiff's case was that the defendants in each of the three suits were his lessees whose term had expired but who, nevertheless, continued in possession of the lands under an untenable claim of permanent occupancy rights. the defendant contended that the lands in the suit were 'ryoti' lands situated in an 'estate' and that they had therefore acquired occupancy rights therein under section 6 (1), madras estates land act, hereinafter referred to as the act. they also pleaded that the civil court had no jurisdiction to try the suits. the learned district munsif upheld the plea of the defendants and returned the plaints in the three suits for presentation to the revenue court. on appeal the learned subordinate judge reversed that decision and directed the lower court to proceed with the trial of the three suits holding that the lands in question were not ryoti lands and that the suits for the ejectment of the tenants of those .....
