IV. In admitting-Rarticular parties to

as it may have been found necessary, with a view to the punctual realization of
the public dues, to vest the Sudder Malguzar, by special regulation,

On
the contrary, it is the anxious desire of Government, and the boundenduty ofits officers, to secure every one in the possession of the rights and privileges
which he may lawfully possess or be entitled
to possess.
In pursuance of this
principle, it
is hereby declared and enacted, that nothing in the above provisions
for extending the existing leases, or in the stipulations of the existing
settle.ments, do or shall be construed to bar the Revenuo officers duly empowered in
that behalf from interfering to adjust the respective rights of the Sudder
Mal
guzzre and their under-tenants; nor shall any claims to a remission or abatement
of revenue be admitted on the ground of
any decision or order passed in that
behalf; but if' such decision or order shalloperate materially to reduce the profits

-
V. First. The provisions contained in the existing Regulations,
regarding
the allowance to be made to Zemindars and other Malguzars
who may be
excluded from the management of mehhals owned or claimed by them,
whether
as malikana or nancar, are hereby rescinded,Second. The proprietors of estates let in farmor held klias shall be entitled
to receive an allowance of malikana, at such rate as the Board of Commissioners,
or other authority exercising the powers of that Board, may determine, `anything in the existing Regulations notwithstanding.
The said malikana to beapportioned, in cases in which several proprietorsmay have heretofore held an
estate under one common assessment, whether in joint tenancy
or otherwise,
according to the shares of each respectively.Provided also, that the malikanaallowance granted to the proprietor
or proprietors of any mehal shall not in any
case be less than five per cent. on the net amount realized by Governmentfrom the lands ;'nor shall it exceed ten
per cent. on that amount without the
special sanction of the Governor-General in Council.
Provided further, that
if' the said proprietors shall, in anycase, be in the receipt of any perquisite orthe profits of any lands in lieu of the nankar formerly grantedto them by the
Native Governments, or otherwise, in consideration ot'their proprietary
tenure,
the amount of such allowance shall be deducted from the malikana
to which
they are by this section declared to be entitled.
Provided also, that this ruleshall not apply to such Zemindars
as may continue in the occupancy of theirtenures whilst the mellal in which they are included is held kilos or farmed
;
or if any part of them, that is to say, Zemindars who may cultivate or lease
their ]ands and pay the revenue to the farmer or Government officer;
nor
without the special sanction of Govermetit, to
any Malguzar, Zemindar, orother proprietor or holder of land, who
may directly or indirectly continue to
draw any allowance from the Ryots of the lands fanned
or held khan. Provided
also, that Malguzars not being actual proprietors of the land included in the
estate for which they may have formerly been under engagements, though
recorded in the accounts of past settlements as Zemindars, Talookdars,
or tfie
like, or being proprietors of a part only of such land, shall not receive the
above allowance on the jumma of the estate, but shall receive such allowance
in lieu of their title of management as it may appear to Government to be
equitable to assign, in addition to the malikana to which they may be entitled
on account of any lands held by them in actual property, and of which they
may not retain the occupancy ; and no malikana shall be granted to any Sadder
Malguzar on account of lands, the occupants of which may deny his right ofproperty, until he shall have established his right by a regular suit in a courtof justice, or to rile satisfaction of the Board.
But, in such cases, such pro-vision will be made for the intermediate support of the party, as the Governor.
General in Council may, on the recommendation of the Board, see fit to
direct:
R
Third. Provided also, that if any Zemindar or Sadder Malguzar shall issuebeen called upon by a Collector, or other officer exercising the powers of
a
Collector, to state the highest amount of jumma for the payment of which he
may be willing to engage, and shall have stated the same accordingly, the sumso stated by such Zemindar or Sadder Malguzar, and not the jumma ultimatelyrealized by Government, shall form the basis on which his malikana allowance
shall be adjusted ;
and, in such case, it shall and may be lawful for the
Revenue authorities to limit the said allowance to five per cent, on tiie said
sum, or to a portion thereof, according to the extent of the proprietary interest
possessed by the said Zemindar or Sudder Malguzar.
Provided also, that if a
Zemindar or Sudder
when so called upon, shall fail to specify or
tender any sum as aforesaid, then and in that case the net revenue derived by
Government from the mehal on account of the year preceding that in which
the Collector or other officer aforesaid may make the said requisition, shall be
taken as the sum by which the amount of malikana (not being less than five,
nor more than ten per cent. on the same) shall be adjusted.
VI. First. In cases wherein the existing engagements may be continued underthe rule contained in Section 2 of this Regulation, it shall and may be lawful for

recording the fullest possible information in regard to the rights, interests,
privileges, and properties of the agricultural community, and to determine the
same, with the same powers and authority as they now are, or, may hereafter
be entitled to exercise, in forming the settlement of estates open to re
assessment.
Second. The said revision of the settlement shall be made village by village
and mehal by mellal.; and such number of mehals shall be revised in each
year as the Board, under the orders of the Governor-General in Council, may
direct.
Third. Such revision of the settlement shall not operate to disturb the
existing engagements during the period for which they may be continued
under the provisions of Section 2 of this Regulation, in so far as such engage.
lrients relate to the amount of jumma demandable by Government; but the
said engagements shall be held and considered to include only such villages
and lands as may be specified in the proceedings or accounts of the settlement
last concluded: and if, on the revision of the settlement of any mellal, it shall
be found that there has been any material error or concealment of lands
