Former Devikulam deputy tahsildar M I Raveendran has slammed the Kerala government's reported move to annul title deeds (pattayams) that came to be known in his name.
The Kerala government has finally decided to cancel the controversial title deeds called 'Raveendran Pattayams' which had triggered a huge controversy during the V S Achuthanandan government’s tenure.
A circular issued by the State Revenue Department has made the affidavit mandatory for applying for possession certificate.
Measures have been initiated to record the land owned by an individual in different parts of the state in a single 'thandaper' number.
The government had cancelled the title deed (pattayam) after it was found that the resort had violated land norms. The single-bench has now upheld the Devikulam sub-collector's July 2007 order to cancel the title deed.
