UP largesse for SCs: Encroachments regularised
Parmindar Singh

Ghaziabad, July 31
The UP Government has come forth with another dose of generosity for members of the Scheduled Castes and other backward classes. They will not be dislodged from the illegal encroachments of gram (village) sabha land if it had been occupied before May 1, 2002. These encroachments will be deemed to have been legally made, according to rules.

The state government’s order is in keeping with an amended land management ordinance. The government had issued this ordinance on May 1 this year with a view to provide special benefits to members of the Scheduled Castes and other backward classes. According to the extant ordinance, the gram sabha lands occupied illegally up to June 3, 1995, were deemed to have been legally occupied.

The government has now issued an amendment to the UP Zamindari and Land Ordinance, 2002, extending this period up to May 1, 2002.

The Principal Secretary, Revenue, Mr Harish Chand, has issued this ordinance. This obviates the need for formally securing a title or filing a claim for securing the rights over such land. For this, an amendment has been introduced in the land management ordinance of 1950 vide which clauses 122-B, 122-B (4H) 123, 157, 157 (BB) 195, 197 and clause 198 stands amended.

Under clause 123 of the amended ordinance, if members of Scheduled Castes and Tribes have built houses on gram sabha land or have occupied any other land up to May 1, 2002, they cannot be evicted from such houses/lands.

Under section (1) of clause 157-A, if a member of the Scheduled Castes sells his land to another member of the SCs that buyer will be able to further sell that land only after the expiry of 10 years from that date. This, it is learnt, has been done to ensure that the Scheduled Caste landowners do not become landless again by selling their land quickly.

Under the new dispensation, under clause 195, the land owners will not be obliged to secure their title from the land management committee. assistant collectors can in future accept these titles under these circumstances.

Similarly, assistant collectors will be able to issue title claims in respect of such reserve lands under clauses 197 and 132 for a public cause and the approval of the land management committee will not be required for the purpose.

The government has asked all district magistrates and collectors to strictly follow the new guidelines. They have also been asked to apprise the administration about it by the seventh of each month.
