The Colonization of Government Lands has proved to be one of the major factors in the development of agriculture in the Province of Punjab and is a major source of revenue. It plays a vital role in theeconomy of the Province. It has not only helped in poverty alleviationand economic development but has also provided a system foconverting the barren and sandy lands to cultivable.The Colonies Department, Government of the Punjab mainlyadministers the management and disposal of state land. The Board of Revenue, Punjab being its attached department has been assignedresponsibility of issuing statements and conditions under section 10 of the Colonization of Government Lands (Punjab) Act, 1912, which arecommonly denoted as ‘Colony Schemes’. These schemes areimplemented through the local revenue agencies i.e. the ExecutiveDistrict Officers (Revenue), District Officers (Revenue) etc.The Colony Schemes were, for the first time, compiled througha Colony Manual published in 1940 and lastly a compendium of Colony Schemes was printed by the Colonies Department in 1983.Since then the government policy has underwent a lot of changes andseveral new schemes have been introduced and amendments made inthe old schemes. However, no further publication has been made inthis regard at government level during the last quarter century. Theresult is that the schemes are found in scattered form and the officialsof Colonies Department particularly at District and Tehsil levelmisuse the situation to get undue advantage and the Courts/ RevenueOfficers become handicapped in taking decisions in accordance withthe operative government scheme/ policy.This book has been attempted with a view to compile all themajor Colony Schemes in one book so as to help the old litigants inparticular and public at large in general. It is expected that this book will also help the courts/ revenue officers to arrive at correct decisionsin accordance with the relevant law/ policy.3
