Haryana Prohibition of Change of Public Utilities Bill to settle old land litigation cases: Khattar

Chandigarh, March 22 : Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar said that 50 years ago people used to donate or gift their land to the government for developmental schemes with verbal consent. “Today their generations go to court and claim that the donated or gifted land belongs to them and public utility properties built on these lands should be dismantled. Therefore giving relief from such litigations, The Haryana Prohibition of Change of Public Utilities Bill, 2022 has been brought,” he said. The Chief Minister stated this while speaking in the House during the discussion on the said Bill, during the ongoing budget session of the Vidhan Sabha on Tuesday. “Today whenever we take any land for a government project, we transfer that land in the name of the department in writing, to avoid any chance of litigation. There is no such case today. All the land litigation cases are 20, 30 and 50 years old,” he said. He said that however, a provision has been made in this bill that in such a case, an owner can file an appeal within 90 days. But if someone does not make any claim for his land after 20 years and then starts claiming the same after 20 years, then it is not justified. That’s why we have brought this law so that such limitations do not arise, he added. On the allegation of the opposition for not accepting their demands by the government, Khattar made it very clear that it is the right of the opposition to raise their demands before the government and similarly, even the government also has the right to choose which demands have to be accepted and which are to be left. The Opposition cannot pressurize the government to fulfil its demands, he said. DB SHK2036
