Setback to outsiders buying property in Faridabad village in Aravallis

Chandigarh, July 29

In a setback to outsiders buying property, including farmhouses in Kot village in Faridabad district in the Aravallis, the Haryana Government has “denotified” the consolidation proceedings over an area of 3,184 acres of land.

Farmhouses built by influential persons

  • An area of 3,184 acres in Kot village was notified under the Consolidation Act for consolidation of holdings for better cultivation of land by govt
  • Of the total area, 2,565 acres was ‘gair mumkin pahaar’, mostly bought to develop farmhouses by influential persons

Amna Tasneem, Director, Consolidation of Holdings, in her order withdrawing notification notifying the entire area of 3,184 acres in Kot village termed it as “defective” and defeating the objective of the Consolidation Act.

“An area of 3,184 acres in Kot village was notified under the Consolidation Act February 1, 2019, for the consolidation of holdings for the purpose of better cultivation of land by the Director of Consolidation,” the order said. However, of the total area of 3,184 acres of land, an area of 2,565 acres was “gair mumkin pahaar” (uncultivable waste land), mostly bought to develop farmhouses by influential persons.

“In case the consolidation exercise of the entire village, including ‘gair mumkin pahaar’ is carried out, it would wrongly benefit certain influential outsider-purchasers of ‘gair mumkin pahaar’. The aims and objectives of the Consolidation Act were to consolidate the agricultural holdings for the betterment of agriculture, prevention of fragmentation of agriculture holdings and for the reservation of the land for common purposes of the village. The object of the Consolidation Act would be defeated in case ‘gair mumkin pahaar’ is included in the scheme of Consolidation,” the order said.

In the wake of the order, outside investors, who had invested in the property, in Kot village, would not be able to get their land consolidated. — TNS
