Knowledge is power.
If we find anything like this what are the actions to be taken?
1. The founder has to inform the collector.
2. The collector has to conduct an enquiry and find out who kept it there and how it was discovered. He has to give a publication about this property in the newspapers. If nobody claims except the founder the treasure will go to the founder. If there is an owner and if he claims, the total amount will be distributed equally between them. If more people are claiming then the matter will go to civil court and it will be settled as per the court verdict.
If the treasure is older than 100 years this matter will go under The Antiquities and Art Treasures Act, 1972
and the central government will take the course of action as the treasure will be declared as antiquity.
