considered extincthas been rediscovered after 135 yearsaccording to naturalists at the Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) here This species was recently rediscovered in Andhra Pradesh and Orissathe results of which have been published in journal ‘Hamadryad’the product of two years of collaborative work between scientists from Centre for Ecological Sciences (CES)Indian Institute of ScienceBangalore; Bombay Natural History SocietyMumbai and Villanova UniversityUSA This geckoa lizard of the family Gekkonidaeis morphologically unique and was known only from a single male specimen collected in 1877 by British ColonelR H Beddomefrom the Jeypore Hills (in Orissa) Though subsequent efforts were made by researchersscientists and nature enthusiaststhis species was not seen in the intervening 130 plus yearsnaturalist Varad Giri told PTI The story of the rediscovery began in 2008-2009when a PhD student at CESIshan Agarwalbegan working on the genus Geckoella Ishan was desperate to find this lost species in order to understand more about its evolutionary historyhe said The first steps toward rediscovering the species involved a lot of homeworkporing over the scanty published information on the speciesin an effort to retrace the journey Colonel Beddome made in the Eastern Ghats over a century agoGiri said The only clues on the whereabouts of this species were from its original descriptionwhich said that this species was collected under a rock in a forest at 4200 ft on ‘Patinghe HillJeypore’ in the Eastern Ghatshe said Finallyin 2010a team from CES embarked on a field trip to try and locate this species The team included two members of Karanth LabCESIshan Agarwal and Aniruddha Datta-Roy and their field assistantTarun Khichi The team wasn’t very optimistic about finding the speciesas it hadn’t been seen for so many years and they had searched various places in Koraput district for this species with no luck As Ishan later put it”it takes persistence and just a little bit of luck” and so it was that one day of hard work by four people paid off with the rediscovery of ‘Geckoella jeyporensis’ (the lizard) The team reassembled in 2011 with Praveen KaranthV Deepak and Prudhvirajfor another field trip through high elevations of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha and against all odds were able to find the species again from a different locality in Andhra PradeshGiri said While Ishan and Aniruddha were the main people involved in fieldworkVarad Giri of the Bombay Natural History Society and Aaron Bauer of Villanova University studied the taxonomy of the species Giri stated “this species is unique among Indian Geckos as it has enlargedhexagonalplate like scales across the back” This is one of the most beautiful Indian Geckoswith an orangey-brown dorsum with a series of largechocolate brown dorsal blotches” Interestinglybesides being morphologically unique and endemic to a region not traditionally known to harbour many endemicsthis species appears restricted to a very specialised habitat in the Eastern Ghatssemi-evergreen forests above 1000m elevation The authors of the study conclude that the Eastern Ghats are more biodiverse than previously thought While this is doubtlessly a notable discoverythe study by them says”In many waysthe rediscovery of Geckoella jeyporensis is symptomatic of herpetological research in India There are a number of species that have not been recorded since their original descriptions or are known from few localities” “While some of these species may be intrinsically rarerange-restricted or infrequently encountered due to ecological traits such as seasonalityfossoriality or arboreality (high canopy species); many so-called lost species have simply not been searched for by trained field biologists” This underscores the need for basic biodiversity inventory across Indiaespecially in areas that have been relatively less studied such as the Eastern Ghats Additionallythe areas this Gecko was found in are under severe anthropogenic pressures and are not formally protected There has been severe deforestationconversion of forest to coffee plantations and for agricultureand there are imminent threats of mining in the regionit said “From this it is clear that even basic data on Indian biodiversity is lackingwe do not even know what species we have in India or where they are found; and time is running out for many species in the wake of immense changes in the natural system triggered by the human species “There is an urgent need for trained biologists to undertake country-wide surveys on a number of groups” says Giri For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Anil Sasi | Updated: May 7 2016 2:04 am Rajasthan is the first state to enact a law on property titles where the state will stand as a guarantor for land titles and provide compensation in case of issues of defective title (Illustration: C R Sasikumar) Top News Across India’s states the land title that legitimises the rights to a property owner is authenticated based on a series of documents of successive transfers without any guarantee of the actual title As a result the buyer’s investment is exposed to the risk of complete loss in case the title later turns out to be defective something that leads to legal challenges that cause delays in the execution of scores of projects and capital getting locked up In this context the Rajasthan Urban Land (Certification of Titles) Act 2016 passed by the Rajasthan Assembly last month sets the legal framework for granting of legitimate rights to a property owner in that state The new urban titling law coming close on the heels of Rajasthan’s labour law amendments and easing of laws to smoothen land acquisition sharply improves the ability of property owners in the state to trade the rights over their property legally Rajasthan is the first state to enact a law on property titles where the state will stand as a guarantor for land titles and provide compensation in case of issues of defective title Effectively after this legislation if two people were to get into a transaction and the deal were to be registered upon payment of requisite stamp duty it is still not considered proof of ownership but merely treated as proof of a transaction having taken place between the two parties If a third person were to successfully contest the ownership of the property there is no compensation available for the buyer in lieu of the money invested in the deal The property titling of the sort enacted by Rajasthan effectively ensures that even if a third person were to successfully challenge the title of a transaction between the two parties the government will have to ensure compensation for the buyer against the payment made Share This Article Related Article According to India-Ratings a unit of Fitch Ratings the adoption of similar laws by other states “can meaningfully shorten the time taken for acquisition of urban land for infrastructure creation by public bodies or for real estate development by private players and bring down overall project cost” This titling reform by Rajasthan comes at a time when the Centre has embarked on a mission to push for urbanisation with various schemes aimed at the development of smart cities the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation and Housing for All Rajasthan may well be the first but efforts towards having a clear titling process has been pursued earlier as well with the Centre taking some tangible steps in this direction In 2008-09 the Government of India implemented a National Land Records Modernisation Programme (NLRMP) as a Centrally-sponsored scheme by merging the two earlier schemes of Computerisation of Land Records (CLR) and Strengthening of Revenue Administration and Updating of Land Records (SRA &ULR) The main objective of NLRMP was to developed a modern comprehensive and transparent land record management system in the country with the ultimate goal of ushering in the system of conclusive titles with title guarantee Taking into account the criticality of modernisation of land record for dispute free title the NLRMP has been revamped under the Digital India Initiative and will be implemented as a Central sector scheme shortly government officials involved in the exercise said The revamped Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP) will build an integrated land information management system It is states though who have to do the groundwork on setting in place the legislative framework Technically in accordance with Entry No 18 and 45 of List II (State List) of the Schedule 7 under the Constitution land and related matters including maintenance of land records survey etc comes under the purview of states Therefore the enactment of legislation on land titling is in the domain of state legislatures “Under the (new Rajasthan) Act the state government will set up an Urban Land Title Certification Authority which will seek all the documents from the landowners and will verify it against the records held by the state The authority will then issue a provisional certificate of title for a period of two years without guarantee and follow it up with a permanent certificate of title to which the government shall stand
