Rules dealing with the reference to court25. Reference under section 19 how made. - When action is taken under section 19, the Collector should be guided by the following considerations in deciding whether to make a separate reference on account of each holding included in the award, as to which an application has been filed under section 18. or to make a single reference covering several holdings. In any case there must be a separate reference on account of each village. If the persons interested in a number of holdings in the same village object to the award on the same grounds, one reference may be made as to all the holdings, however, the persons interested in any holding object to the award on grounds which apply only to that holding, then a separate reference may be made as to that holding. Reference to the court should, of course, be made only in the case of persons interested who have objected to the award, the assenting [persons interested] being settled with without reference to the court. The provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure (V of 1908) on the subject of misjoinder of causes of action and of parties should be consulted in this connection. 26. Departmental officer or company to be informed. - The Collector shall at once inform the departmental officer or company concerned of any reference to the court made under [section 18] and shall forward to him a copy of the grounds on which the objection to the award is taken [section 18(2)]. When a notice is served under clause (c) of section 20, the Collector shall immediately forward a copy to the departmental officer or company.
Rules dealing with the payment of compensation27. Payment of compensation when made. - As soon as the award has been announced the Collector shall proceed to pay the compensation awarded to those persons who are present and who accept the award. Sufficient notice shall be given to enable all payees lo assemble at the place where they will receive their dues, but no time should be wasted in useless endeavors to secure the attendance of absentees. A note shall be made of the names of those persons who refuse to accept the amount awarded or accept it under protest. As far as possible, payment of compensation should be made at the time of award, as most of the persons interested will then be present. 28. Summoning of persons interested for receiving payment and further procedure. - (1) In giving notice of the award under subsection (2) of section 12 and tendering payment under sub section (1) of Section 31 to such of the persons interested as were not present personally or by their representatives when the award was made, the Collector shall require them to appear, personally or by representatives, by a certain date, to receive payment of the compensation awarded to them, intimating also that no interest will be allowed to them, if they fail to appear. (2) The Collector should, as far as possible, arrange to make the payments due in or near the village to which the land pertains, in order that the number of undisbursed sums to be placed in deposit on account of non-attendance may be reduced to the minimum. (3) Whenever payment is claimed through a representative such, representative must show legal authority for receiving the compensation, on behalf of his principal. (4) If the persons interested do not appear, and do not apply for a reference to the civil court under section 18, the Collector shall, after any further endeavour to secure their attendance or made payment that may seem desirable, cause the amount due to be paid into the treasury as revenue deposits payable to the persons to whom they are respectively due, and vouched for in that form prescribed or approved by Government from time to time. He shall also give notice to the payee of such deposits, specifying the Treasury in which the deposits have been made. 29. Procedure for payment of deposits. - When the persons concerned ultimately claim payment of sums placed in deposits, the amount will be paid to them in the same manner as ordinary revenue deposits. 30. Procedure for payment of compensation in cases covered by section 30 or section 35. - The procedure laid down as to the payment of the compensation money in cases of reference under section 18 shall apply also to reference under section 30 or subsection (5) of section 35. The compensation money or if any of the parties are willing to accept payment of their shares and payment to them is admissible, the portion of it which is in dispute and cannot be paid away, shall be deposited in court when the reference is made. 31. Collectors power to award land in lieu of cash. - The Collector shall bear in mind the provisions of sub-section (4) of section 31 which empower him to come to any agreement with the parties as to the method of payment; but except in the cases provided for by sub-section (3) of that section, the Collector cannot force a party to take land in lieu of cash. Where, however, the interest of a party is so limited, as in the case of a trustee of a wakf property or a Hindu widow, as to make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to arrive at an adequate cash estimate of its value or where, from the circumstances of the case, it is impossible to place the parties concerned by a cash compensation in the same or nearly the same position as before acquisition, sub-section (3) enables the Collector to arrange to award land (subject to the same limitation of interest) in lieu of cash.
