If there is a dispute between owners who have land next to each other about the measurements of their plots, they can resolve it by getting assistance from the government surveyor to conduct a joint survey. The ownership documents and the information in the revenue records have to be looked into while settling such a dispute. You can find them in the Record of Rights (RoR) at your local tehsildar’s office or online, if the state has digitized RoRs available. Any encroachment by one party on the land of another has to be removed. For instance, such encroachments may consist of building a fence that trespasses into another’s property, extending a building beyond one’s own property boundaries, overhanging tree branch protruding into neighbors’ property which could potentially cause injury/damage, etc.
If that is not done, the aggrieved party can go to court.0
