(2) Each of the said periods of twenty years shall be taken to be a period ending within two years next before the institution of the suit wherein claim to which such period relates is contested.

(3) Where property over which a right is claimed under sub-section (1) belongs to the Government that sub-section shall be read as if for the words "twenty years" the words "thirty years" were substituted.

Explanation - Nothing is an interruption within the meaning of the section, unless where there is an actual discontinuance of the possession or enjoyment by reason of an obstruction by the act of some person other than the claimant and unless such obstruction is submitted to or acquiesced in for one year after the claimant has notice thereof and of the person making or authorizing the same to be made.
