Kashmir’s Evacuee Property Department Takes Measures to Protect Properties
In an effort to protect evacuee properties, the Evacuee Property Department in Kashmir held a joint meeting of revenue and custodian officers and officials. The Sub Divisional Magistrate of Uri, Jatin Kishore, and the Custodian of the Evacuee Property Department, Tariq Hussain Naik, convened the meeting to identify and retrieve properties that have been illegally occupied.
The officers emphasized the importance of removing all illegal encroachments and strategizing plans to get rid of all such illegal constructions on evacuee property lands.
They also asked the field functionaries to take all measures in their jurisdiction to identify and retrieve the evacuee property lands that are under illegal occupation.
The department has reconciled evacuee property figures with revenue records and found that some EP lands are under illegal occupation. The officers directed the Deputy Custodian of Baramulla and the Tehsildar, Assistant Custodians of Uri and Boniyar, to initiate the process of issuing notices to the illegal occupants to surrender the EP lands in a timely manner.
The general public has been appealed to refrain from taking undue advantage of any evacuee property and from converting the land for purposes other than the allotments made by the department in the past.
The department also plans to utilise all lands that can be gainfully used for the departments and will prepare site plans and install signage to clearly mandate that no illegal occupation will occur in the future.
