Tamil Nadu Cultivating Tenants Protection and Payment of Fair Rent (Extension to Kanyakumari District) Act, 1972
(Tamil Nadu Act 4 of 1976)
Notes. - This Act was published in the Tamil Nadu Government Gazette on the 8th March 1976 and as such this Act came into force on the said date.
Object & Reasons6
|Statement of Objects and Reasons. - Many of the enactments in force in the State have been extended to the transferred territories in the State, namely, the Kanyakumari district and the Shencottah taluk of the Tirunelveli district by the Tamil Nadu (Transferred Territory) Extension of Laws Act, 1957 (Tamil Nadu Act XXII of 1957) and by similar and separate Acts enacted subsequently. The Tamil Nadu Cultivating Tenants Protection Act, 1955 (Tamil Nadu Act XXV of 1955) and the Tamil Nadu Cultivating Tenants (Payment of Fair Rent) Act, 1956 (Tamil Nadu Act XXIV of 1956) were extended to Shencottah taluk of Tirunelveli district by the Tamil Nadu Cultivating Tenants Protection and Payment of Fair Rent (Extension to Shencottah Taluk) Act, 1959 (Tamil Nadu Act 28 of 1959) as the system of land tenure and systems of tenancy in Shencottah taluk of Tirunelveli district were found to be the same as those prevalent in the rest of Tamil Nadu. The extension of the two Acts to Kanyakumari district was, however, kept in abeyance pending introduction of ryotwari settlement in Kanyakumari district as in the rest of the State as there were different systems of tenure in this district. Ryotwari settlement has now been introduced in the district and it is time now for extending the above mentioned two Acts to the district. The Government have, therefore, decided to extend the Tamil Nadu Cultivating Tenants Protection Act, 1955 and the Tamil Nadu Cultivating Tenants (Payment of Fair Rent) Act, 1956 to Kanyakumari district. 2. The Bill seeks to give effect to the above decision. Published in Part IV-Section 3 of the Tamil Nadu Government Gazette, Extraordinary, dated the 10th August 1972.|
