CHIEF MINISTER’S OFFICE, PUNJAB
PUNJAB GOVT TO CUT DOWN TIME FOR FILING OBJECTIONS UNDER SVAMITVA SCHEME FOR EFFECTIVE MISSION LAL LAKIR IMPLEMENTATION
Chandigarh, September 17: To facilitate quick and effective implementation of Mission Lal Lakir, the Punjab Cabinet led by Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Friday decided to cut down by half the time for filing objections prepared under the SVAMITVA scheme – from the existing 90 to 45 days.
The Cabinet, at a virtual meeting, accordingly approved the Punjab Abadi Deh (Record of Rights) Bill, 2021, enabling amendment to Section 11(1) of the existing legislation, which had provided that person aggrieved by the demarcation of any boundary in the survey record, or an entry regarding the proprietary rights in the standing record of rights in a survey unit, may file objection within 90 days of display of record at a conspicuous place in the village.
The Punjab Abadi Deh (Record of Rights) Act, 2021 was enacted to implement ‘Mission Lal Lakir’ across the State. As no Record of Rights is available for properties within the Lal Lakir, such properties could not, therefore, be monetized as per real value of the property and no mortgages etc. can be created on such properties. The State Government had announced Mission Lal Lakir to prepare the right of record of properties of villages within Lal Lakir, with cooperation of GoI, under SVAMITVA Scheme.
To implement ‘Mission 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.
REIMBURSEMENT OF STATE GST SHARE ON LANGAR ITEMS ALLOWED
In another decision, the cabinet okayed amendment to Rule 10 (e) of Revenue and Rehabilitation department indexed at serial number 37 in the State Government’s Allocation of Business Rules, 2007. With this amendment, decks have been cleared to provide grant-in-aid for reimbursement of the State share of GST on purchase of langar items of Sri Darbar Sahib Amritsar, Sri Durgiana Mandir Amritsar and Sri Valmiki Sthal Ram Tirath Amritsar.
