BIG PUSH FOR
LAND POOLING POLICY

IMPLEMENTATION EXPECTED SOON !
Removing the biggest bottleneck to the implementation of Land Pooling Policy, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung has allowed the transfer of ownership of the ‘Gram Sabha Land’ in villages earmarked for Land Pooling to the Delhi Government, paving the way for early implementation of the Policy.

This was a persistent demand by Delhi Govt before it notifies the 95 villages identified for land pooling as urbanized- Thus declaring these villages as development areas in order to allow development of Commercial, Residential and Community Infrastructure. This shall enable Delhi Govt to undertake its own projects without being dependent on DDA for land.

Now that the issue is resolved, implementation of Land Pooling Policy is expected very soon.

Thanks and Regards

Govt gets land in 95 Villages in big push for Land Pooling Policy- Hindustan Times (5th Nov, 2015)

AWAITING NOTIFICATION FROM THE STATE GOVT, THE LAND POOLING POLICY WAS IN A LIMBO AFTER BEING CLEARED IN SEPTEMBER 2013.

The much-awaited Land Pool­ing Policy - touted as the future of organ­ised hous­ing sec­tor in the city will soon see the light of the day.

Lieutenant gov­ernor Najeeb Jung has allowed trans­fer of own­er­ship of the gram sabha land in 95 vil­lages, iden­ti­fied for imple­ment­ing land pool­ing policy across the city, to the Delhi government’s rev­enue department.

An order was issued by Som Naidu, director-cum-joint sec­ret­ary (Panchayat), on October 29. A day later, the rev­enue depart­ment also issued a cir­cu­lar about the changed own­er­ship to all officers con­cerned, includ­ing the six dis­trict magis­trates under whose jur­is­dic­tion the 95 rev­enue vil­lages are located.

The Delhi gov­ern­ment had deman­ded the L-G office for enblock allot­ment of gram sabha land before it can notify the 95 vil­lages, iden­ti­fied for land pool­ing, as ‘urbanized’ — thus declar­ing these vil­lages as devel­op­ment areas in order to allow devel­op­ment of com­mer­cial, res­id­en­tial and com­munity infrastructure.

The Delhi Development Authority’s (DDA) plan to execute the land pool­ing policy has been in a limbo ever since the policy was cleared by the Centre in September 2013, await­ing noti­fic­a­tion from the state gov­ern­ment. “The decision has removed the biggest bot­tle­neck in the pro­cess. We can expect a decision on it soon,” a senior rev­enue depart­ment offi­cial said.

The DDA, which comes under the cent­ral government’s urban devel­op­ment min­istry, is the sole land-owning agency in the cap­ital and the L-G has the final author­ity on its policy mat­ters. Sources said the state feared that it may lose its right over gram sabha land after declar­ing the vil­lages as urbanised.

The rul­ing dis­pens­a­tion was of the view that it would become tough for the state to under­take future pro­jects if it lets go of the own­er­ship of the gram sabha land and it would become even more depend­ent on DDA for land, sources said. The AAP gov­ern­ment is already locked in a war of words with DDA over allot­ment of land at ‘mar­ket rate’.

Officials said with the gram sabha land being ves­ted with the rev­enue depart­ment, other agencies of the gov­ern­ment could now seek allotment of gram sabha land from the revenue department.
