1964: KAR. ACT 12] Land Revenue 443
among the several laws in the different areas of the State, it is desirable and
administratively convenient to have a uniform law governing land and land revenue
administration for the State of Mysore. Hence this Bill.
(Published in the Kanataka Gazette (Extraordinary) Part IV-2A dated 9th August,

  1. p. 594.)
    Amending Act 9 of 1965.—It is considered that in respect of dry lands, rain-fed
    wet lands and rain-fed garden lands, standard rate of land revenue for land of one
    hundred per cent classification value in that class should be four per cent of the
    value of the average yield of such land. It is also considered that in respect of
    plantations, the standard rate should be one per cent of the value of the average
    yield of lands of that class of one hundred per cent classification value.
    In so far as the irrigated wet lands and irrigated garden lands are concerned, it is
    considered that for the purposes of land revenue, they should be treated as though
    they are dry lands and the land revenue applicable to the lands of that classification
    value of dry land of that class in that locality should be levied and that water rate
    may be levied separately under the provisions of the Mysore Irrigation (Levy of
    Betterment Contribution and Water Rate) Act, 1957.
    It was originally intended that the new rates of assessment should be brought
    into force from the year 1965-66. On account of the fact that the consideration of the
    Settlement Reports has taken more time than was anticipated, it is proposed to
    make necessary amendments so as to enable Government to levy land revenue
    according to resettlement even if the new rates are actually introduced in the course
    of the revenue year. Hence the Bill.
    Opportunity has been taken to make certain other amendments of a minor
    (Published in the Karnataka Gazette (Extraordinary), Part IV-2A, dated 18th
    April, 1965, as No. 90, p. 6.)
    Amending Act 2 of 1966.—According to section 49 of the Mysore Land
    Revenue act, 1964, the Tribunal is the Appellate Authority in respect of any order
    passed by a Deputy Commissioner. To appellate power has been conferred on the
    Divisional Commissioner. But in respect of proceedings commenced to concluded
    under the Acts repealed by the Land Revenue Act, appeals from the orders of the
    Deputy Commissioner, have to be entertained and dealt with by the Divisional
    Commissioners. It is considered desirable to entrust the appellate functions in
    444 Land Revenue [1964: KAR. ACT 12
    respect of orders made under the repealed Acts also to the Mysore Revenue
    Appellate Tribunal. Hence this Bill.
    The entrustment of the said appellate functions will not involve any additional
    expenditure to the State.
    (Published in the Karnataka Gazette (Extraordinary), Part IV-2A, dated 22nd
    January, 1966, as No. 9, p. 4.)
    Amending Act 7 of 1969.—It is considered necessary to take power to direct
    revision settlement in zones where the standard rates fixed by the recent revision
    settlement require modification. It is also considered necessary to make provision
    specifying the authority to determine the assessment on individual holdings and to
    provide an opportunity to the holders to prefer objections and also to provide a
    machinery for the consideration and decision of these objections.
    Hence the Bill.
    (Published in the Karnataka Gazette (Extraordinary), Part IV-2A, dated 31st
    March, 1969, as No. 193, p. 6.)
    Amending Act 5 of 1970.—At present appeals in land grant cases also lie to the
    Mysore Revenue Appellate Tribunal. Having regard to the nature of these cases it is
    appropriate that appeals should lie to the Divisional Commissioners and powers of
    revision should vest in Government.
    In the case of unauthorised occupation of Government lands the existing
    provisions of section 94 provide no alternative to eviction. This works out as a great
    hardship in some cases where the parties have made considerable investment in
    good faith. It is, therefore, proposed to insert a new section 94A to enable
    regularisation of such unauthorised occupation in deserving cases on conditions
    appropriate to the circumstances of each case. Hence this Bill.
    (Published in the Karnataka Gazette (Extraordinary), Part IV-2A dated 16th
    January, 1970, as No. 24, p. 7.)
    Amending Act 33 of 1975.—Under the Karnataka Land Revenue Act, 1964 as
    amended in 1970, the Government of Karnataka is the highest appellate and
    revisional authority in respect of land grant cases. The work at Government level on
    this account has shown increase and it has not been possible to dispose of this
    work at an adequate rate and consequently pendency of cases has been high.
