Hello, THANKS TO THE “RIGHT TO INFORMATION ACT, 2005”., it would have IMPOSSIBLE to unearth otherwise such a Monumental Land Scam. Here I am trying to give very brief account of it in a shortest possible way. My inquiry/question to the panel at the end. At present a total of 14 (fourteen) of our Second Appeals against the PIO Sub-Registrar and Tahasildhar, for their Failure to provide us the most crucial TITLE-DEED documents and not taking any ACTION or ACCOUNTABILITY, waiting before the Karnataka SIC. My first post to this forum on this issue titled: “Asylum Land Scam” (http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/116239-asylum-land-scam.html) Dt: 22nd Oct. 2013 and few more posts latter. I also follow you in the Twitter Time Line. I am part of a small group of senior citizens and anti-corruption RTI activist. We are natives of the place called St. Joseph’s (Asylum) Nagar in Attavar Village Mangalore where our investigation of this Monumental Land Scam Begins. LORD BISHOP (LB) of Mangalore in possession around THOUSAND Acres of Land in several Villages in the Mangalore town, before and since India Independence. He occupies nearly 100 acres of land in the Attavar Village alone under the Revenue Katha (Patta) 56., and its RTC comes in that name. Since the fast decades the LB continue to TRANSFER (divide, sale, lease etc.) large sections of this land among his own fraternity, cohorts and cronies i.e. whomever he like or decide. Also evicts many who don’t agree to his terms. After my first post to this forum in the year 2013, we proceeded to obtain the INFORMATION records on the LB’s land Transfer-Deed documents by filing RTI applications. In the first stage: we were able to obtain quite a number of LB’s “Land-Transfer-Deed” Registration documents from the Sub-Registrars Office also the “Land-conversion” record document files from the Tahasildhars Office. Likewise the documents of the License, Sanction for the land from the Town-Planning and Revenue Offices. Now we are in possession of large numbers of such RTI certified copies of Govt. record documents. However shockingly we found NO “TITLE-DEED” or the “Mother-Deed” or its registration number to explain how and when did the Bishop obtained absolute ownership right of the land from its previous owner or from the Govt. Land Tribunals (Judgment Orders). It is the most crucial document that any immovable land property Transfer Deed should have that any expert will tell. However Bizarrely the Sub-Registrars Office sanctions the registration of all Land-Transfer-Deed documents of the LB without having the Title-Deed. Same thing happen in Tahasildhars Office which sanctions all the “Land Conversion” documents without the copy of the Title-Deed in the land conversion files. Far more scandalous land scam happen when the LB applies Fraudulently for land Building License and Revenue Katha for around 1.7 acres of land property but enclosing a Title-Deed document of some other land property. Nevertheless he obtains Licenses or sanction the two Govt. Offices. Is it due to their gross negligence or connivance in the corruption? In the second stage: of this Land Scam investigation/exposure, we started sending several complaint reports to the Sub-Registrar, Tahasildhar, Revenue and Town-Planning informing them about all the fraudulent/forgery documents submitted by the LB in order to illegally obtain the registration, sanction, license etc. for the land property Transfer, it is causing thousands of Crores of Rupees revenue loss to the Govt. exchequer so to conduct an immediate enquiry and to take action. However we received no proper response or action from the PIO of Sub-Registrar or Tahasildhar Office, despite providing the hard core evidential record documents to prove it. As our RTI continued persistently asking information about the missing Title Deed, finally the Sub-Registrar in his reply admitted stating “they find NO TITLE-DEED of the LB in the Patta 56. When asked ‘how and on what basis you registered the LB’s Land Transfer Deed documents without his Title-Deed’ the PIO reply ‘on the basis of some NON-REGISTERED documents”. When we asked provide us the NON-REGISTERED document of the ‘Title-Deed’ the PIO reply ‘the documents DESTROYED’. We have a total of 8 such PIO Sub-Registrars replies to as many (group members) individual RTI on this matter, which overall proves that the LD do not have the Title-Deed for the land he transfers; stated by none other than the Sub-Registrar himself! Following which I sent petition letter to the Prime Minister of India, Karnataka Chief, Minister, DC Mangalore informing about this major Land Scam causing thousands of thousand Rupees Revenue and other income loss to the exchequer, enclosing some important evidential record documents of this land scam in the post. All the three Higher offices promptly responded sending NOTICE to conduct inquiry to their lower offices. However the concerned departments seems to remain oblivious so far. In the third stage: we filed RTI First Appeal mainly against the Sub-Registrar and Tahasildhar PIO . Our main ‘PRAYER’ before the FAA: 1). To order the PIO to issue us the Title-Deed document. If it NOT AVAILABLE provide information how and why it missing. 2). Take all the necessary departmental inquiry how and why the documents missing take disciplinary action (recovery notice, filing cases, etc) in regards to the issue. 3).Take prompt action against the LB, if he illegally submitted fraudulent land transfer registration document without having or mentioning the Title-Deed in it. However we got NO REDRESSESAL of the issue from the FAA Hearing. The PIO mostly absent in the hearing and sent no reply. However PIO’s office backstage arguments mainly the following. 1). They (PIO Office) say they have provided all the document whatever Available in the Office. If some document missing for whatever reasons and whatever important document (Title-Deed) it may be, the PIO is NOT RESPONSIBLE for it under the RTI if it not available in his Office. 2). Under the RTI they are not liable or ACCOUNTABLE to take any action, if any important documents missing. Therefore need not conduct any departmental enquiry on the issue or to take any action to recover it. 3). Overall they don’t have to take any departmental action against those (LB) who submitted fraudulent document to their department to illegally obtain the land registration. As mentioned before we have filed a total 14 RTI Second Appeals before the SIC about the PIO, FAA failings, and my (our) Prayer basically the same above. Now my enquiry/Ask question to the Forum 1). Is the PIO not responsible under The RTI for the document(s) if it is missing that he should lawfully have in his office? Is he not responsible to take action to recover it? 2). Is the PIO (Sub-Registrar, Tahasildhar) NOT ACCOUNTABLE if someone obtains their land transfer registration by submitting fraudulent/forgery documents in their Office therefore need not take any actions on those who committed the crime? 3).What could be the likely SIC decision? a). Can the SIC order the PIO to conduct enquiry, how and why the documents mission and to take action to recover it? b). Can the SIC direct the PIO to file criminal case against the LB if he submitted fraudulent documents to obtain the land transfer registration? I have tried to put the matter as briefly as possible before asking my three questions. I have many more important questions to ask in this regard. Before which, I am willing to provide any clarification that you may need so I can continue to ask the other question relating to this issue. .............. PS. Many perhaps curious to know how can the LB have in his possession thousands acre land with RTC in his name but don’t have the Title-Deed of it? The answer in short: The Karnataka Land-Reform Act, 1961 provisions(ceiling) went totally against the LB owning such a vast stretch of land so he did not file the DELARATION before the land TRIBUNAL, thereby forfeited all ownership of the land after the laps of a given period. Now the land property should legally belong to the Karnataka State Govt. However the LB using all his power and influence (corruption) deviously able to continue and maintain LB name in the Govt. RTC land records. Even though he does not have the legally required Title-Deed in the form of Land Tribunal Court Judgment Order, nevertheless he is able to get the land transfer Registration by submitting fraudulent/forgery Title-Deed documents in all the Govt. offices by manipulating the system in the fast decades. Now thanks to RTI Act, 2005 helping us to unearth this Major Land Scam.
