It has come to notice that various important documents (Latha and Massavi) of the Revenue villages Chowadhi and Sunjwan in Tehsil Bahu have been missing from concerned patwars as well as General Record Room, Gole Gujral, Jammu and not available with the field revenue officials. 

In addition to Latha and Massavi (Revenue maps), the Book of Record of Rights (Missal-i-Haqiyat) is also missing from the Record Room and the specific pages of the field book were also found missing.

Taking a strong notice of missing vital public documents, Divisional Commissioner Jammu, Dr Raghav Langer has directed Sub Divisional Magistrate, Jammu South for registering FIR against the accused in concerned police station of the jurisdiction.  

In June 2021, the Divisional Commissioner framed teams for random verification, ETS survey of encroachment of state/ Kahcharai/Forest lands in the said Revenue villages with instructions for the reconciliation of Revenue records.  

It has also come to the notice that the Divisional Commissioner office has sought an explanation from the concerned tehsildar as to how Fard-i-Intikhabs for these Revenue villages were being issued and mutations being attested in the absence of Latha and Massavi but no satisfactory reply could be provided.

Divisional head of the Revenue Administration is annoyed over the fact that why First Information Report was delayed as this is a serious matter of missing of vital revenue records and as to how the concerned Revenue offices were functioning till date in the absence of such documents.
