Giriraj Singh and Umashankar from Tidhwali Village were fighting for their names, for their ownership since last 42 years. The unfortunate residents of Rajakheda tehsil in Dholpur were facing the consequences of irregularities in government records. About four decades back, the revenue officers made an error while entering their names in the revenue docs. Their name was replaced by other names. These troubled land owners moved from court to court, office to office in order to prove their ownership of their land. Their wish was granted when Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje launched Nyay Aapke Dwar two years back.
At revenue Lok Adalat held under Nyay Aapke Dwar, the government representatives verified this error and entered their correct names on government record. Thus, they gained the ownership of land, once again.
That’s not all! Hundreds of others in Dholpur and other remaining districts of Rajasthan gained the ownership of their land under Nyay Aapke Dwar—a brainchild of the Rajasthan chief minister. This unique program aimed at delivering justice at the doorstep of the residents. Under this scheme, the government organized revenue camps and Lok adalats in various districts, towns, cities and villages.
The revenue officers ran these camps from morning to evening and received applications/ complaints of the requesters. The officers resolved these cases within a day or two. Even the paperwork related to disputes was completed on time.
Koli got Justice after 16 Years
Rasingh Koli, a resident of Dhaur village of Basheedi, Dhaulpur district was troubled since 16 years. While entering his name, the presiding officers made minute errors in spelling. Koli paid a heavy price for this error. He visited the government office several times but without any substantial results. Finally, this error was rectified in a camp organized under Nyay Aapke Dwar. Thus, Koli got the possession of his land.
Settlement of Property Dispute with Mutual Consent
Maniram and Ibrahim were fighting over a disputed property since last 20 years. The issue was partition and allocation of land between the two parties. The case was pending in the court for nearly two decades until the government intervened in between. With the intervention of revenue officers at Lok Adalat, the case was settled with mutual consent. Both parties got a fair share in the property: a win-win situation for both!
Considering the positive outcomes of Nyay Aapke Dwar, Raje government launched the second phase last month. They hope to resolve remaining cases that have been pending in court for a long time.
