Report No. 248
32. Agriculturists' Loans Act, Act 12 of 1884
Category: Agriculture and Animal Husbandry
This Act was enacted to amend and provide for the extension to certain territories of the Northern India Takkavi Act, 1879. The 1879 Act was enacted to provide for the recovery of certain advances made to landholders in the territories administered by the Lieutenant-Governors of the North-Western Frontier Provinces and the Punjab, and the Chief Commissioners of Oudh, the Central Provinces, Assam and Ajmer.
The 1879 Act does not find mention in the Chronological List of Central Acts published by the Ministry of Law and Justice and hence, does not exist now. The 1884 Act is now obsolete and has been recommended for repeal by the PC Jain Commission Report in its Appendix A-5 as well.
