Subject:     Complaint against unprofessional conduct of Deputy District Officer (Revenue), Lahore Cantonment, Lahore (Mst. Saliha Saeed).

Venerable[1] Sir,

It is open secret that no Patwari works as he should be. Advocates are required to deal the revenue matters being representatives of their parties which is permitted under the law.

Undersigned being a Local Commission got registered a Sale Deed vide bearing Document No. 2023, Book No. 1, Volume No. 49, dated 24-05-2007, registered with Sub-Registrar Gulberg Town, Lahore.

As per law on the point, its mutation was required to be entered automatically in relevant revenue record but after the lapse of reasonable time period, it couldn’t did so. Undersigned approached the Patwari concerned for doing so, who refused to do so due to the erroneous issuance of Fard for Sale which was issued by the former Patwari (Probably Imdad).

The matter was complained to DDO(Revenue) Cantonment, Lahore, in writing, copy enclosed. She passed derogatory remarks as to why you are approaching me, you have no right to approach me, and why the party himself is not present? The matter can be resolved only in case of the appearance of party concerned.

If the officer complaint against would have read the application, then it was easy for her to understand the law on point that everyone can be represented before revenue authorities, as per law laid down inter alia in the Land Revenue Act, 1968.

It is my observation after the incident that she is incompetent, unprofessional, and unskilled Servant as she behaves and demands whatever law doesn’t permits. She denies the right of person to be represented. She requires personal appearance of party without cogent reason(s). She doesn’t adhere high standards even average standard of communication. She is Servant but she doesn’t works being Servant but otherwise. May be she is fit for privilege class but as far as general public is concerned, she is ill-mannered.

Now, you are requested to please take up the matter and take appropriate steps so that the person complained against mends her ways. An administrative and legal action may also be taken against her.

It is also suggested that extra ordinary care may also be taken while appointing (public) servants. No servant may be appointed in future like her.

Hope for the best.


Thanks & regards,
