Payment to outgoing rent-receivers
67. (1) The Government shall pay to an outgoing rent-receiver to whom any arrears of rent and cesses and interest which have vested in the Government under clause (c) of sub-section (4) of section 3 or under clause (7) of section 44 were due immediately before the date or day, as the case may be, referred to in the said clauses a sum equivalent to fifty per centum of such arrears excluding interest, as computed in the manner prescribed, by way of compensation within a period not exceeding four years from the said date or day in such manner and in such instalments as may be prescribed:
Provided that before making such payment, the Government may, after giving the outgoing rent-receiver an opportunity of being heard, deduct from such sum any debts and dues payable to Government by such rent-receiver.
(2) Instead of proceeding under sub-section (1), the Government may pay, at such time and in such manner as may be prescribed to an outgoing rent-receiver, in lieu of the compensation payable under the sub-section, a sum equivalent to seventy per centum of the total amount actually collected by the Government out of such arrears and the provision of the proviso to sub-section (1) shall apply also to such payment.
(3) The amount payable under sub-section (2) shall be deposited by the Collector in the prescribed manner with the 1[Assistant Judge] having jurisdiction and the 2[Assistant Judge] shall thereupon publish the particulars of the person to whom the amount is stated by the Collector to be due and invite claims from the co-sharers and superior landlords of such person, if any, against such amount and shall then make an award and disburse the amount amongst the persons who are found by him to have a valid claim.
