Roshni scheme: Saifullah reviews proposed amendments

‘Time limit for applications, fee to be extended’

Jammu, Jan 30: Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Mir Saifullah Wednesday reviewed the amendments proposed by Revenue Department for the Jammu and Kashmir State Lands (Vesting of ownership to the occupants) Rule, 2007 (Roshni Scheme).
An official spokesman said he also reviewed the status report of amount deposited in respect of Nazool and State land under occupation in Jammu and Srinagar cities.
Saifullah was chairing a joint meeting of Revenue and Law departments here.
Addressing the meeting, the Minister said that keeping in view the significance of the scheme, the time limit for filling applications and deposit of fee would be extended so that left out authorized occupants and lease holders get benefitted.
“Threadbare discussion was held with regard to the implementation of the scheme with a stress on prioritizing the public interests. It was realized that there is a need to reconcile the interest of state and occupants who were not vested ownership right of land under the said law as yet,” the spokesman said. “The meeting observed that the increase in the time limit for filling of applications and depositing of fee with certain conditions would be beneficial for all stakeholders.”
The meeting decided that Revenue Department would come up with revised rules to address grievances of all stakeholders under the law. “The meeting informed that an area measuring over 494 kanals has been approved for vesting of ownership in favour of 163 occupants for an amount of Rs. 103.44 crore against which Rs.50.63 crore has been deposited by 97 occupants in Srinagar district,” the spokesman said. “In Jammu district, an area measuring over 205 kanals has been approved in favour of 323 authorized occupants for vesting of ownership right at an amount of Rs. 55.15 crore, against which  an amount of Rs. 9.48 crore has been deposited by 111 occupants.”
Among others, Advocate General, MI Qadri, Commissioner/Secretary Revenue B A Runiyal and Secretary Law, G H Tantray were present in the meeting.
