Court – Supreme Court of India

Citation – ADM (Rev.) Delhi Admn. v/s Siri Ram (2000) 5 SCC 451

Hon’ble Supreme Court of India has held that it is a principle of interpretation of a statute that conferment of rule-making power by an Statue does not enable the rule-making authority to make a rule which beyond the scope of the enabling Act or which is inconsistent therewith or repugnant.

Para – 9

The Land Revenue Act did not empower the rule-making authority either to classify land or exclude any area from preparation of record-of-rights and the annual register and therefore if the amendments are upheld, the result would be that a person would be deprived of his valuable right of possession in the excluded area as his name would not be recorded in the record-of-rights.
