PDP President Mehbooba Mufti said that this is a step taken to ‘leave nowhere’ to the people of Jammu and Kashmir. He tweeted, “This is another step to join the nefarious intentions of the Government of India to weaken the people of Jammu and Kashmir and leave them nowhere.” Unconstitutional, Article 370 was removed and looting of our natural resources was allowed and now the land of Jammu and Kashmir has been kept for sale.
In this regard, a gazette notification issued in Hindi and English in this regard has given information about various changes in the land laws, including approving the use of agricultural land to build a public establishment. The most significant change has been made in the Jammu and Kashmir Development Act, whose clause 17 has removed the phrase ‘permanent resident of the state’.
Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha told reporters that in these amendments, no permission has been given to give agricultural land to non-farmers. However, several exemptions have been given in the law under which agricultural land can be given for non-agricultural purposes, including the establishment of educational or health care facilities.
Former Advocate General Mohammad Isaac Qadri said that these amendments have opened doors for people outside Jammu and Kashmir to buy land here. He said, “Now there is no legal ban on outsiders buying land here.”
Before repealing Article 370 and Article 35-A in August last year, non-residents could not buy any immovable property in Jammu and Kashmir. However, the latest changes have paved the way for non-residents to purchase land in the union territory.
Explain that the People’s Alliance, a coalition of 7 political parties of the mainstream of Jammu and Kashmir, declared the changes in land laws, vowing to fight against them on every front.
