ENTRY IN REVENUE RECORD CANNOT BE REBUTED BY MERE STATEMENT

Karewwa And Ors. vs Hussensab Khansaheb Wajantri AIR 2002 SC 504 (2002) 10 SCC 315 We do not dispute the legal position as stated by the learned counsel for the appellant, but the presumption of correctness of an entry in revenue record cannot be rebutted by a statement in the written statement. Mere statement of fact in the written statement is not a rebuttal of presumption of correctness of an entry in the revenue record. The respondent was recorded as a tenant in the revenue record in the year 1973 and under law the presumption is that the entry is correct. It was for the appellant to rebut the presumption by leading evidence. The appellant has not led any evidence to show that entry in the revenue record is Incorrect. We, therefore, do not find any merit in the contention.
