No. 2(505)/G-5/Policy-III/1714-1805 Dated Mohali 3/2/1983

Sub: Disposal of surplus rural evacuee Agri. Land.

Memorandum

The salient features of the policy evolved for the disposal of surplus rural evacuee agricultural land are as under :

  • Transfer on the basis of possession with effect from Rabi 1978 onwards upto 10 ordinary acres each inclusive of one’s own holding, if any, provided the application for the purpose has been made on the prescribed form on or before October 30, 1980 and the occupant is head of his family. The price of the land to be transferred is to be charged as under:
    1. Scheduled Castes :

For all types of land Rs. 200 per O.A.

(i) Chahi, Nehri Rs.2000 per O.A.

(ii) Barani, Sailab etc. Rs.1000 per O.A.

The possession is to be determined strictly on the basis of the entries appearing in the khasra girdawari. Doubtful and tampered with Khasra Girdawaris are to be ignored. Similarly, corrections of the Khasra Girdawari secured after February 26, 1980 are to be taken into consideration.

The following categories of land shall be sold by public auction open to all :

(a)The land retrieved by the Directory Organisation set up by the State Rehabilitation Department.

  1. Non Scheduled Castes
    • Sale by public auction and by restricted auction :

    (c) Small fragments of land not exceeding 2 acres surrounded by the holdings of the owners who are not members of the Scheduled Castes; and

    (d) Lands already sold in open auction but the sale of which has been set aside by a competent authority.

    The surplus rural evacuee agricultural land, which does not fall in the categories mentioned above, is to be disposed of by restricted auction. The price of the intended sale is to be given atleast fifteen days before the proposed sale and every such notice is to state the date, time and place of proposed sale, the description of land or property to be sold, the terms and conditions of the sale.

    2. During pre-audit of sale files being maintained by the various tehsildars (Mahal)-cum-(Sales) , it has been noticed by the Government that serious irregularities/omissions have been committed by them while disposing of the surplus rural evacuee agri. Land which are detailed below :

    3. It has, therefore, been desired by the Government that necessary instructifons mayf be issued to the Tehsildar (Mahal)-cum-Sales/ Naib Tehsildar (Mahal)-cum-(Sales) working under you to avoid the above lapses in future and to dispose of the rural land strictly in accordance with the policy discussed above. It may be made clear to them that any laxity in this bahelf, when noticed in future, would be viewed very seriously.

    1. Land which are sub urban or are potential, residential or commercial sites or are under garden or fall within garden colonies.
      • Vacant lands have been transferred on the basis of possession under Rabi, 1976 and Rabi 1978 policies.
      • Excess area has been sold to the allot tees at the fixed rates of Rs. 1000/- and Rs. 2000/- per acre while such areas were to be sold at the current market price upto the limit of 10-O.As. inclusive of one’s own holding, if any.
      • Land has been transferred on the basis of possession in the terms of the entries of the Khasra Girdawaris corrected after the stipulated date.
      • Lands have been transferred to occupants who are virtually not in possession of the same.
      • Applications received from the occupants for the transfer of the land in pursuance of the Press Notes issued by this Department, from time to time, have been tampered with and names of more persons have been added / included in those applications.
      • Proper publicity is not being made before conducting the auctions. In some cases, the area which was not mentioned in the notice of procalamation, has been included in the area sold subsequently. Besides, in some cases the auctions have been conducted before the expirty of 15 days from the date of proclamation.
      • Small fragments of land not exceeding 2 acres and surrounded by the holdings of the owners, are not members of Scheduled Castes were required to be sold in open / public auctions, but such land has been sold in restricted auctions. Similarly, the area of less than 2 acres, having an independent access, was required to be sold in restricted auction, which on the contrary, has been sold in open auction.
      • Some revenue officers do not conduct auctions themselves at the spot but leave the matter to their subordinate staff i.e. Kanungo etc. Sometimes the bid sheets are not filled in properly with the result that where these sales become fictitious, the Government also suffers financially and is deprived of the real price likely to be fetched in a fair auction.
      • 3It has, therefore, been desired by the Government that necessary instructifons mayf be issued to the Tehsildar (Mahal)-cum-Sales/ Naib Tehsildar (Mahal)-cum-(Sales) working under you to avoid the above lapses in future and to dispose of the rural land strictly in accordance with the policy discussed above. It may be made clear to them that any laxity in this bahelf, when noticed in future, would be viewed very seriously.
