Court : Himachal Pradesh

Reported in : AIR1950HP4

Bannerji, C.J.1. These two appeals relate to the same facts and are against a judgment and decree of the Chief Court, Chamba, dated 26-8-2003, affirming a judgment and decree of the District Court, dated 26th Baisakh 2003, and reversing the decree of the Subordinate Judge dated 4th Poh 2002, resulting in the dismissal of the plaintiff's suit. 2. The only point of law involved in these appeals is, whether a tenant, enjoying cultivable possession for a long period over twelve years but paying half produce or Batai to the land lord, can acquire occupancy rights. 3.
