Deputy Commissioner (Kumaon) would check the demand or recommendations sent by district collector to board of revenue. Deputy Commissioner would sent the recommendation to board of revenue sent by DC Deputy Commissioner would sent annual report to board of revenue sent by district collector. However, the real officer for Bhabhar was district collector.
