Report No. 249
5. Revenue, Bombay, Act 13 of 1842
Category: Land Revenue
Recommendation: Repeal in consultation with relevant State(s)
In this case, as well, the text of the Act is not available on the Law Ministry's website, or from any other readily available source, an indication that it is not in use. As already mentioned, since land revenue falls under List II of the Seventh Schedule, the concerned State legislature is the competent legislature for repeal of this Act.
Therefore, the Central Government should write to the concerned State Government recommending the review of this law by the State, with a view to repeal. The Central Government should also remove this law from 6 its lists of central Acts in force. This Act has also been recommended for repeal by the PC Jain Commission Report (Appendix A-5).
