DELHI: The state government has decided to give one more opportunity to the occupants of rural and urban evacuee lands and properties. They can now file their claims to concerned tehsildar for transfer of land in their name within a period of three months from November 1, 2013 to January 31, 2014.
In a letter issued by additional chief secretary and financial commissioner of revenue, the department of revenue and disaster management had asked the occupants of rural and urban evacuee lands and properties, who are in possession of the same, to file their claim within a period of six months from July 24, 2012. This period of filing claim elapsed on January 23, 2013.
