Collectors initiate process for land acquisition 'illegally'
11/15/2018 10:37:45 PM

Early Times Report
srinagar, Nov 15: In violation of the rules, the Collectors have launched a process for acquisition of land on the requisition of unauthorised government officials in Jammu and Kashmir.
This lackadaisical approach by the government officials not only violates Land Acquisition Act and Transfer for Property Act but also creates legal complications, vitiating the whole process of land acquisition for various purposes, officials said.
Officials in the Revenue department said the Collectors have initiated the proceedings for acquisition of land for various purposes without verifying competence of the officer placing the indent.
"It is violating the rules and creates legal complications and vitiating the whole process of acquisition," they said.
The officials said there have been complaints that officers who are not authorised are placing the requisition indent with the respective Collectors for acquisition of land for various purposes in various departments.
"It is creating the bottlenecks in releasing of payments to the land owners because the Collectors are not acquiring land legally," they added.
Sources said the District development Commissioners had also entertained requisition for transfer of state land to various government departments without ascertaining the actual requirement of land.
"The Revenue department is finding it difficult to meet the requirement of land for every departmental activity in view of huge scarcity of suitable state land," said sources.
The government has taken a note of "lackadaisical approach" by the officials in acquisition of the land several times. The Revenue department had written to the departments many a time that the indent for acquisition of land shall not be extended if it is placed by the respective head of departments/corporations addressed to District Collector only.
"While placing the indent, the HoD concerned shall specifically certify that he/she has duly been authorised by the administrative department concerned for acquisition of the land on behalf of the said department," the Revenue department directives to departments earlier issued said.
Further the Revenue department had directed that the "requisition for transfer shall be placed by the administrative secretaries concerned to the District Collector specifically indicating there in the actual minimum requirement of land for the purpose along with a map having duly approved by the competent authorities."
