Land Allotment Guidelines Unveiled

Srinagar, Aug 24: The administration led by Lieutenant Governor in Jammu and Kashmir has introduced comprehensive guidelines for the allotment and lease of land to landless beneficiaries of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Gramin).

As per details shared by the Revenue Department, a news agency reported that the scheme involves the allotment of five Marlas of state land on a lease basis to landless PMAY (G)/Awas plus beneficiaries. These beneficiaries come from the permanent waiting list of 2018-19 maintained by the Rural Development Department.

Eligibility for land allotment includes individuals residing on various categories of land, such as state land, forest land, Rakhs and Farms, custodian land, and land near Dachigam Park that has been allocated for agricultural purposes where construction is restricted.

The guidelines extend to those who are otherwise eligible for PMAY-G housing assistance but lack available land for construction.

The guidelines specify that the allotment of five Marlas of state land will be exclusive to individuals who are domiciled in Jammu and Kashmir. To qualify as “landless,” an individual must be a J&K domicile holder with a separate family, devoid of land owned by them or their family members, and not entitled to inherit five Marlas or more of land.

The deputy commissioner in charge will oversee the allocation of the state land, ensuring adherence to the guidelines. The lease of the land will be granted under the Jammu and Kashmir Land Grants Act of 1960 and its corresponding Rules.

To secure the lease, beneficiaries will be required to pay a nominal one-time premium of Rs 100/- per Marla along with an annual ground rent of Rs 01/- per Marla. The lease will span a 40-year period, with the possibility of an additional 40-year extension, contingent upon fulfilling stipulated formalities and norms.

However, it’s important to note that if a beneficiary fails to initiate house construction within two years of land allotment, the lease will be terminated. The Rural Development Department’s Assistant Commissioner (Development) will be responsible for verifying beneficiary cases and submitting them to the deputy commissioner for further inquiry.

It’s noteworthy that the land allotment on lease doesn’t grant permission for construction. Lessees are obligated to obtain construction permission from the competent authority and commence building within three months of the lease date. Failure to do so will result in the land reverting to the government without compensation.

Additionally, subletting, sub-leasing, alienation, or transfer of the leased land is strictly prohibited. Any violation of these terms will lead to the termination of the lease, and the land will be reclaimed by the government
