    thus, best to contact your area rural committee and find out who was the last village representative to claim your ancestral rights ( ??), a bribe may be needed as they are not so legit or some really hard talk with their members if you want to get anything out of them

    As I read online, one could apply for land from the government or purchase land privately. However the Lands Department website's section on Small House Applications is offline 'being updated' so I can't look up the official guidelines on either option.

    But before that, I presume I would need some documentation to confirm my ancestral rights. Perhaps some guidance on that first.

    then, eventually, once your ancestral rights ( ??) has been verified, then you may possibly buy some land from other village ( this concept is sketchy as best as some village allow while other don't

    maybe then after that you may have 'reward'/contribute to the adopted village head to allow ancestral rights ( ??) to build on your recently purchased land
