REGULATION, 1891 (REGULATION NO. VII OF 1891)
in the absence of notification under the Assam Forest Regulation or Forest Act
nature of the forest land under the Forest Department as reserved forest is
affected—Even assuming that the defendant Forest Department did not acquire an’
title in the suit land of the forest as no subsequent notification required
under section I? of the Assam Forest Regulation VII of 1891 or under section 10
of the Forest Act 1927 was issued, even in that case, the posses-ion of the
Forest Department in the lands of the notification ext. A is not denied or
disputed and the long possession of the Forest Department is a fact — So under
section 114(e) and (f) of the Evidence Act there is presumption of that
notification under section 17 of the Assarn Forest Regulation was duly
made—Forest Department has got title and possession in the suit land or at
least a better title and prior possession than those of the plaintiff— Evidence
Act (I of 1872) S.1 14.
