Explanatory Note

(This does not from part of the notification, but is intended to indicate general purport.)

 

The Kerala Land Assignment Rules 1964 are hot applicable to lands in Municipal and Corporation areas. Assignment of lands in these areas is being done under executive orders. Previously lands were leased out under the Kuthakappattom Rules 1947 issued by the Government of the former Travancore State. Consequent to the formation of the State of Kerala and the introduction of the Kerala Land Assignment Rules, 1964, the lease granted under the Kuthakappattom were also brought within these rules. The High Court of Kerala has quashed the applicability of the Kuthakappattom Rules in the areas outside the former Travancore State. Government consider that the lands in the urban areas have also to be brought within the purview of statutory rules. The notification is intended to achieve the above object.
