MAHARASHTRA LAND REVENUE(INSPECTION, SEARCH AND SUPPLY OF COPIES OF LAND RECORDS) RULES, 1970
Until recently land was the sole source of income for the State.
With the intervention of colonial rule during the historic times, a certain percentage of the agricultural produce harvested from the land was allocated to the rulers of the state.
Eventually the rulers of the state brought into the picture myriad land revenue systems with an attempt to collect revenues from the peasants.
There were different laws (in regards to the Land revenue system) that were applicable to the different areas of Maharashtra. To avoid the possibility of any complication, the Government of Maharashtra constituted ‘Maharashtra Land Revenue Code 1966’ by consolidating all the different laws into the one specified above. To conclude land revenue Administration is under the purview of this law.
