PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION

 

 

                The Punjab Land Records Manual was compiled and issued during the year 1935. A thorough revision of the Manual became necessary as a very large number of provisions have been amended from time to time. In  fact a large number of  prvisions have no applicability now in the changed circumstances.

                The Manual has been revised and brought up-to. date. The Punjab Kanungo Service Rules,1945, have been incorporated in the revised . The new rules will be issued separately when finalized .

PREFACE TO THE THIRD EDITION

         

          The Punjab Land Records Manual 1935 was updated in the year 1973. A further revision was necessary in view of a number of amendments made from time to time. The copies  of the second revised edition is essential in view of the number of amendments made since 1973.

                This edition of the Punjab Land Records Manual has been updated incorporating all amendments till date with the view to affect more clarity. I hope this revised edition will be extremely useful to the revenue officers of the State.
