Land Reforms Ordinance, 1984
Section/Order/Article/Rule/Regulation Head Note
Section 5

The words ‘immoveable property’ occurring in section 5 of the Ordinance include both agricultural and non-agricultural properties. There is no scope for encroaching upon the domain of legislature by importing the words ‘rural area’ in section 5 and addition of such words will amount to legislation by the judiciary which is not at all permissible. .....S.
