The learned counsel for the petitioner submitted that the petitioner is the absolute owner and possessor of land situated at Bommaraspet Village, Shamirpet Mandal, Medchal-Malkajgiri District, having purchased the same from her vendors by way of a registered sale deed, dated 14.11.2017.

Due to inadvertence, the petitioner could not mutate her name in the revenue records immediately after the purchase of the subject land. However, the petitioner submitted an application on 16.02.2020 to the 4th respondent/Tahsildar, Shamirpet Mandal, seeking mutation of her name in the revenue records and for issuance of E-Pattadar Pass Book and title deed in respect of the subject land, but so far no action has been taken by the respondents and ultimately requested this Court to grant the relief as indicated above.

The learned Assistant Government Pleader for Revenue appearing for the respondents submitted that in view of enactment and coming into force of the Telangana Rights in Land and Pattadar Pass Books Act, 2020, the petitioner is required to submit an on-line application under Section 5(1) of the said Act for mutation of her name in the revenue records since she claims to have acquired the subject land by way of a registered sale deed.
