Kashmiri Pandit migrant struggles for land purchase in Himachal
Appeal to the PMO yields no result
9/19/2018 11:06:52 PM
Early Times Report
JAMMU, Sept 19: A middle-aged Kashmiri Pandit migrant woman is virtually moving from pillar to post to seek permission from the Himachal Pradesh government to purchase land there and raise a house on it.
Even the PMO has ignored the pleas and plight of the 60-year-old woman and shown no interest in the trauma she has been suffering from.
Pinning her hope in the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Jaya, wife of Autar Krishen who had migrated from Sopore in Kashmir to Kangra in 1990 following the eruption of militancy in the Valley, had written a letter to him for his intervention on July 12, 2018. She however received no response from the PMO even after the lapse of two months.
Jaya, staying in Kangra since 1990, had applied in 2008 for granting of permission under section 118 of HP Tenancy and Land reforms Act 1972 for purchasing land in Jogipur locality for constructing a residential house. She told news agency that the case was recommended by Deputy Commissioner Kangra vide letter No 2878/Bhu. Sudhar-211 dated 30-12-2008 to Financial Commissioner (Revenue) and had been waiting since 2008 for the required permission from the government, but without any result.
She said it came to limelight after the RTI that the state government in a letter to the Deputy Commissioner Kangra conceded that the initial proposal of Jaya could not be traced at the government level hence it will be appropriate that a fresh case may be prepared and referred to the government along with Revenue papers and records for the consideration.
Additional Chief Secretary (Revenue ) in a letter No Rev D (F) 11-3/2016 dated 11-4-2016 to Deputy Commissioner Kangra had said, "Case file is not available presently at HP Secretariat," and directed DC Kangra to settle the case at his own level.
A legal expert said that it was surprising that the competent authority to grant permission under section 118 was the state government and not Deputy Commissioner.
Jaya said that it was in reply to another RTI letter No 402/RTI-1 SR -15 dated 21-6-2016 she came to know that the file related with the case with District Revenue Officer Dharamshala was also missing.
She said that for submitting a fresh case it was difficult as the rules of 2008 were amended so much so it requires now 30 years working in the state where as she was here for the 29 years only.
It was for the negligence of the revenue department that both files were missing and she is being forced to submit a fresh case.
She had sought an intervention on humanitarian grounds from the Prime Minister Modi but her dream was shattered as PMO did not reply.
Dejected Jaya said that now there was no other option but to adopt a legal recourse.
