Public Demand Recovery Act, 1913
Section 20 of the Public Demands Recovery Act provides that where property is sold in execution of a certificate, the title shall vest in the purchaser which is merely the right, title and interest of the certificate debtor at the time of the sale, even though the property itself be specified. Sub-section 2 of Section 20 provides that where immovable property is sold in execution of a
certificate, and such sale has become absolute, the purchaser’s right, title and interest shall be deemed to have vested in him from the time when property is sold, and not from the time when the sale becomes absolute.
