CLU TO BE WAIVED FOR SETTING UP RETAIL OUTLETS IN PRISONS, NEW MOHALI BLOCK TO BE CREATED

 Chandigarh : To compile the Record of Rights of properties in Lal Lakir villages the Punjab Cabinet led by the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday approved ‘The Abadi Deh (Record of Right) Rules, 2021’ to deal with issues arising out of the rights relating to these properties.

The move is aimed at helping the state government prepare the Record of Rights of properties within the Lal Lakir in the villages, for the purpose of implementing Mission Lal Lakir (with the cooperation of Government of India under its SVAMITVA Scheme). The rules would also facilitate villagers/owners monetise property rights and avail various benefits provided by Government departments/institutions and banks.

Under SVAMITVA Scheme, there is a provision for mapping the land, households, habitation and all other areas falling within the Lal Lakir.  The Abadi Deh (Record of Rights) Act, 2021 provides legal framework to finalize the record of ownership on the basis of survey conducted and recorded in the activity above, with proper provision and set-up for resolution of objections and disputes to create and update a Record of Rights, which once finalized will have same legal status as the record of rights for the agricultural land.

It may be noted hat at the time of settlement and consolidation of agricultural land in the state, the abadi in the village was placed within the Lal Lakir. No Record of Rights was prepared or created for the area within the Lal Lakir. Possession has been considered as the ruling point for the ownership of any land within the Lal Lakir. In certain cases, some registered sale deeds have taken place on the basis of Chulha Tax etc. However in most of the places, the ownership of the area within the Lal Lakir is usually passed on through an informal agreement etc. and the possession is the basis of ownership.

DECIDES TO WAIVE OFF CLU FOR SETTING UP RETAIL OUTLETS IN PRISONS

The Punjab Cabinet also approved waiver of (Change of Land Use) for setting up Retail Outlets (Petrol/diesel/CNG etc.) in 12 locations at various prisons in the state under the aegis of Punjab Prison Development Board (PPDB).

With this, the CLU charges of Rs. 48,77,258 would be waived off to set up the retail outlets at Central Jails in Patiala, Faridkot, Ferozepur, Amritsar, Ludhiana, Hoshiarpur and Gurdaspur besides District Jails of Sangrur and Ropar, New District Jail and District Jail of Nabha and Sub Jail, Fazilka.
