• Who owns the kharab land

Resident's welfare association of my building has developed a tennis court on the kharab land behind our building. It is also included in our boundary walls. Is it a crime to do so? who actually owns the kharab land? govt or is it considered no-man's land?

The ownership of land needs to be ascertained from revenue authorities. Whosoever is the owner of land can initiate legal proceedings for recovery and criminal prosecution against trespasser.

Approach the nearest revenue office in Bangalore. Since you have survey no with you it will not be an uphill task to find out the owner of land.

it would be considered as encroachment  as you have extended your boundary wall to cover the said land . entry to said land is only from your building premises .

if you have survey number based on said survey number you can find details of owner of said land from revenue authorities .

Kharab land generally belongs to State Govt and at any point of time the Govt can takeover the land for public cause.  However, when it is adjeacent to an individual owner's land, the Kharab land will be utilised by that individual and in revenue records it is shown as Kharab. To know the details contact Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike(BBMP) if the land is within BBMP limits or contact the concerned Taluk Tahsildar.
