Administration orders preservation, protection of Kashmiri migrants’ properties
Srinagar: The Lt Governor Manoj Sinha-led Jammu and Administrative Council on Saturday issued instructions for the preservation and protection of Kashmiri migrants’ immovable properties and the removal of any encroachments from them, an official spokesperson said.
To streamline the preservation and protection efforts, the council also approved a Revenue department proposal to confer powers of commissioners upon deputy commissioners of the Kashmir division under the Agrarian Reforms Act, he said.
Further, the spokesperson said, the Department of Disaster Management, Relief, Rehabilitation and Reconstruction was directed to develop an online portal to facilitate the migrants in applying for correction of records, demarcation and removal of encroachments, and alienation by way of fraud or distress.
Such applications have to be disposed of in a time-bound manner under the Public Services Guarantee Act, he said.
On Friday, the Jammu and Kashmir administration had said that timely action would be taken against any violation of the J&K Migrant Immovable Property Act, including in respect of religious properties, besides ensuring eviction, custody and restoration of such properties.
