131.Such application shall be in Form No 30, except that the same shall be expressly stated to be made under the provisions of section 55, and shall be headed accordingly.
132.Before granting such certificate, the Judge shall, in respect of the alienation intended to be thereby confirmed, make all inquiries which are directed to be made by the Court before confirming an alienation of the like nature.
