CHANDIGARH: Haryana government today said it has decided to give one more opportunity to occupants of rural and urban evacuee lands and properties to file their claims for transfer of land in their name latest by January 31, 2014.

Evacuee properties are those properties or land which fell vacant due to migration of families to Pakistan during partition.

An official spokesman said the department of Revenue and Disaster Management had, through a public notice, asked the occupants of rural and urban evacuee lands and properties, who were in possession of the same, to file their claim within a period of six months from July 24, 2012. This period lapsed on January 23, 2013.

But it was later on found that many occupants have failed to file their claims within the stipulated period. So, it has been decided by the state government to give one more chance to the occupants of evacuee property to get land transferred in their name which is under their possession, he said.

The evacuee lands and properties are located in places like Farukhnagar, Dhankot, Kherki Majra, Mewka, Khera Khurrampur, Siwari, Pataudi, Naurangpur, Narsingpur, Sihi, Sikanderpur Badha and Sakatpur in district Gurgaon, he said.

Evacuee properties are those properties or land which fell vacant due to migration of families to Pakistan during partition. The property or land, which fell vacant, was later allotted to people who migrated from Pakistan to India and some portion of left over land was occupied by some refugees and other persons.

After allotting land to migrated people equal to area they owned in Pakistan, some surplus land remained which was occupied by other people. The government started schemes from time to time to settle the issue of such evacuee properties.

Usually, the occupants were given priority and allowed to get land transferred in their name after depositing prevailing Collector rate, to which they were a bit reluctant. At times, such evacuee land is sold by the state government through open auction, he added.
