The Doctrine of Adverse Possession (Devi Singh Case)

What is the Doctrine of Adverse Possession?

It is a legal doctrine that allows a person who possesses or resides on someone else’s land for an extended period of time to claim legal title to that land.

In India, a person who is not the original owner of a property becomes the owner because of the fact that he has been in possession of the property for a minimum of 12 years, within which the real owner did not seek legal recourse to oust him.

The Supreme Court has recently held that a citizen’s right to own private property is a human right.
