Sub:Allotment of rural land to urban claimants.


Reference this Department Memorandum No. RI/40773 dated the 27th September, 1960 and No. 162(2)RII/26631 dated the 17th August, 1961 on the subject cited above.

(2)Some displaced persons who owned urban agricultural land in West Pakistan and were erroneously allotted rural lands in Punjab, in lieu thereof have approached the Govt. of India to condone the delay in filling the Rehabilitation Grant Application in respect of the urban land were such erronsly allotments were cancelled by us. The Govt. of India have therefore reconsidered the position and it has been decided that in pending cases the rural allotment already made in lieu of the urban land should not be cancelled but regularized. If the claimant has not filed compensation application or Rehabilitation Grant Application in respect of the urban land the price of the rural land may be recovered from him in cash provided he volunteers to make payment as such. Where the allottee insists that the price of the rural land should be adjusted against the compensation due to him on his verified claim or Rehabilitation Grant Application, such adjustment should be allowed.

(3)Cases which have already been decided by the MO’s shall not be referred. The persons affected, who have not already got claims or Rehabilitation Grant Application verified for the urban agricultural land left in Pakistan, will be entitled to file Rehabilitation Grant Application now, to the Chief Settlement Commissioner, Govt. of India.

(4)These instructions may please be brought to the notice all concerned and should be strictly followed.
