J&K Sharnarthi Action Committee seeks intervention for compliance of land clarification
9/12/2023 10:38:21 PM
Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 12: Jammu and Kashmir, [Date]: The Jammu Kashmir rnarthi Action Committee (JKSAC) has penned a letter addressed to the Hon’ble Lt. Gov. Manoj. K. Sinha and Dr. Raghav Mehta, Chief Secretary of the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir, urging their immediate intervention for the stringent enforcement and implementation of clarifications provided by the revenue administration to the Inspector General Registration (IGR) of Jammu & Kashmir. This concerns state land that was allocated or mutated in favor of the Displaced Persons (DPs) of 1947 under Government Order No. 254-C of 1965.
The JKSAC asserts that certain vested interests have misinterpreted these orders, leading to complications for both the government and the DPs.
During a meeting held in Jammu, Gurdev Singh, President of JKSAC, and other participants strongly condemned the actions of individuals within the government who appear to be creating discord between the government and the DPs for their personal gain.
The participants at the meeting demanded the identification of these individuals and called for them to be held accountable under the law for causing harassment to the disadvantaged DPs.
Gurdev Singh explained that the JKSAC had received numerous complaints from DP families over an extended period. These families reported that most Sub-Divisional Magistrates (SDMs) and Registrars were refusing land registration after its sale and purchase, arguing that the land allocated to DPs under Order 254-C of 1965 was only meant for self-cultivation and could not be sold.
The JKSAC took up the issue with the Inspector General Registration and the Secretary of the Revenue Department. After a thorough examination, a clarification was issued to the Inspector General Registration on January 20, 2023, stating that proprietary rights had been granted to DPs under Cabinet Order No. 254-C of 1965, which are absolute.
Despite the passage of eight months, no advisory has been issued to subordinate registering authorities, which has raised concerns about the governance standards proclaimed by the government.
Gurdev Singh further emphasized that DPs were allotted evacuee as well as state land for sustenance, and the government had granted them proprietary rights over state land under Order No. 254-C of 1965. Additionally, DPs were granted occupancy tenancy rights over evacuee land under Section 3-A of the Agrarian Reform Act of 1976, allowing them to sell, mortgage, or gift their allotted evacuee land as per their needs.
He argued that if DPs could exercise these rights over evacuee land, they should also be able to do the same with their allotted state land, as they hold full proprietary rights over both.
Gurdev Singh appealed to the Lt. Govt. and Chief Secretary to give urgent attention to this sensitive issue concerning DPs and provide strict advisory to the IGR for the immediate implementation of the clarification communicated by the Revenue Secretariat of the Union Territory of Jammu & Kashmir.
Others who spoke at the meeting included Dwarka Nath Khajuria, Rajesh Khajuria, Pawan rma, Ajeet Singh, and Capt. Puran Singh.
