142. Recovery of arrear paid by a person appointed under section 132. –
A Bhumidhar or a person appointed under section 132 or a member of a Gaon Panchayat, who has paid the arrear of land revenue due on account of any other Bhumidhar may, in addition to any other mode of recovery open to him, within six months of the payment of such amount, apply to the Deputy Commissioner to recover such arrear on his behalf as if it were an arrear of land revenue payable to Government.
The Deputy Commissioner shall on receipt of such application satisfy himself that the amount claimed is due to such a person and may then proceed to recover, as if it were an arrear of land revenue, such amount with costs and interest from the said Bhumidhar or any persons in possession of his tenure.
The Deputy Commissioner shall not be a defendant to any suit in respect of the amount for the recovery of which an order has been passed under this section.
No appeal shall lie against the order of the Deputy Commissioner under this section, but nothing contained therein and no order passed under this section shall debar the Bhumidhar from maintaining a suit for arrear of land revenue.
