Hyderabad: The division bench of the Telangana High Court dismissed appeals filed by a realtor against the registration of land parcels measuring over 19 guntas, under Survey No.s. 90 and 91, in Tattiannaram of Abdullapurmet mandal in Rangareddy district.

Last year, a single-judge bench of the High Court allowed registration of sale deeds between private parties on the land, which was challenged by Ammoda Developers and Promoters, among others, who claimed that registration was erroneously allowed.

The land in question belonged to Nawab Suryar Jung, who was a jagirdar in the erstwhile State of Hyderabad. On his death in 1912, he was survived by two minor sons, Mir Ahmed Ali Khan and Mir Sadat Ali Khan, born to two wives.

Jung’s property was taken into custody by the Court of Wards and in an order dated November 11, 1950, half the land was given to Bande Ali Khan, son of Mir Ahmed Ali Khan. Subsequently, the other half was released to the descendants of Mir Sadat Alo Khan.

While private parties submitted that they purchased the land from vendors through registered sale deeds, one of the counsels submitted to the court that the land was listed in the prohibitory list, due to status quo orders.

Tagore Township and Welfare Association claimed that the title deed was in its favour and that plots were carved out in 1978 and sale deeds executed in favour of individual parties.

The single-judge bench, assessing all aspects, ordered that the title would be decided by the civil court, thereby, allowing the registration of a development agreement.
