HC stays registration of non-agriculture properties on Dharani


Telangana High Court took objections to the state government seeking registrations of non-agricultural properties in the state.


While admitting a writ petition against the Dharanai portal registrations under the new Revenue Act, the High Court bench issued interim orders restricting the state government not to insist for Aadhar details while registering the agriculture properties in the state besides asking it not to take up registrations of non-agricultural properties in the state.

The bench also directed the government not to provide the accumulated details to outsiders while questions as to under what section government has been collecting Aadhar, caste and other personal details.

However, the Advocate General informed the court that the government has taken all measures in protecting the data of the individuals to which he sought 2-weeks time to submit the details. Accordingly, the court has posted the matter to November 20th.

The bench also made several key remarks as follows:

  • New Revenue Act is confined only to the agricultural lands
  • There is no provision for the non-agricultural lands in the new Revenue Act
  • No provision for data security in the New Revenue Act
  • There is a danger of breach of personal data of the people
