In the Bombay Tenancy Act, what are Navi Sharat and Juni Sharat?


Considering land is a state topic, state laws govern all legislation, regulations, and laws concerning land transfer, conversion, and other procedures. Agricultural land conversions in Maharashtra are governed by the Bombay Tenancy Act, which allows tenement or leasehold ownership (Navi Sharat) to be changed to outright ownership (Juni Sharat).

What exactly is Navi Sharat?

The word Navi Sharat refers to tenure, which occurs when a person or entity contributing agricultural land is subordinated to tenancy and acquired by tenants under the rules of the Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Land Act.

What exactly is Juni Sharat?

Juni Sharat suggests that an agriculturist will be the only owner of agricultural land. This ancient tenure is established on laws in place before the implementation of the Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Land Act. The owner of agricultural land will not be subject to any obligations or restrictions under this tenure land statute.

How can you change Navi Sharat to Juni Sharat?

The local mamlatdar will be the public person in charge of overseeing the land conversion. He should determine the conversion premium owed by the owner after receiving the necessary documentation. State administrations have exempted the modification in agricultural land tenure in various states. In a broad sense, a surcharge of 40% of the land rate plus extra fees is applied for Navi Sharat to Juni Sharat conversion.

Which records are necessary for the conversion?

The following documents are necessary for the conversion of agricultural land from Navi Sharat to Juni Sharat:

  • A certified copy of the 7/12 document dated 1951-1952 to the application date
  • Form-6 Village Hakpatrak certified document including all required adjustments to the agricultural land in question
  • The owner or applicant owns a certified copy of Village Form-8.
  • Genuine Panchnama copy
  • The original copy of an assigned Talati’s answer
  • Certified copy of the zoning certificate
  • Copy of a land map
  • A certified true copy of a contract or deed between the buyer and seller (if any)
  • certified copy of Kulmukhtyarnama (if the applicant is a Kulmukhtyar)

It is all about the old and new agricultural land tenure that has emerged with the introduction of the Bombay Tenancy and Agricultural Land Act.
