MODES OF DISPOSAL OF LAND
There are following modes of disposal of land:-
2. By negotiation
3. By allotment
4. By transfer to the unauthorized occupants
1. BY AUCTION
The rural evacuee agricultural land exceeding one acre is disposed of amongst the members of Scheduled Castes in restricted auction 12-1/2% of the highest bid is recovered as earnest money at the time of auction and the balance is recovered in 15 half yearly interest free instalments. The instalments starts after one year of the delivery of the possession. The land purchased in restricted auction cannot be alienated for a period of 10 years from the date of confirmation of the auction by the competent authority. The Scheduled Castes persons of Haryana are only eligible to participate in such restricted auctions. A Scheduled caste family can purchase land upto 5 standard acres including own holding, if any. No stamp duty is charged from such scheduled caste persons who purchases the land in restricted auction.
Rural land less than one acre and urban land is sole in open auction in which everyone can participate. 1/4th of the highest bid is recovered as earnest money and the balance is recovered within one month after confirmation of auction.
Every auction is conducted after its reserve price has been fixed. Prior to 1996 the reserve price for the purpose of auction was being fixed by the State Government in terms of Standard acres for the entire state but it was not considered realistic as it did not depict the market price. In 1996 Committees were constituted for each district under the Chairmanship of Divisional Commissioners to recommend the reserve price to the Government for the purpose of auction. Thereafter in 2001 it was decided that reserve price so fixed by the Committee and approved by the Government be increased by 5% annually subject to the condition that if the reserve price so increased is less than Collector rate for the said land then the said reserve price be got re-fixed from the Committee. Guide lines were also issued to the Committee that while determining the reserve price it shall take into consideration the prevailing market price, potential for commercial/industrial, relative location, kind of soil, and other relevant factors which may have bearing on the price. Fresh guide lines were issued to the field staff so that the auction are conducted in a transparent manner and more revenue is generated for the State. In 2006 fresh instructions have been issued that collector rates or 5% annual increased rates, whichever is higher, be adopted as reserve price. On the basis of this new pattern auctions were conducted but Govt. have stayed the auction in March 2007.
2. BY NEGOTIATION
As per policy of the Government rural/urban lands and properties are also transferred to the Government Departments/ Boards/ Corporations/ Gram Panchayats and other Registered Institution at the price fixed by the Committee headed by Divisional Commissioner. In order to transfer the land under this scheme to Private Institution, Government have also framed a policy on16.9.2002 according to which the application for transfer of land by the said Private Institution is required to be given to Tehsildar (Sales) concerned and thereafter it was to be considered by Deputy Commissioner for final recommendation to the Government for transfer of the land. All such proposals required approval of the Government.
3. BY ALLOTMENT
the initial stage the main function of the Department was to resettle the Displaced
Persons who migrated from
The State Government had constituted a Cabinet Sub-Committee under the Chairmanship of Hon’ble Revenue Minister to frame the State At for the disposal of evacuee lands and properties. The said committee has finalized the draft Act. The Draft Act has also been vettedby LR and the same has been submitted to the Government for final approval.
Thus in view of the repealment of the Act urban properties are not being disposed off because there are no authority to dispose of such properties and the disposal will be taken up after the enactment of the said Act.
4. BY TRANSFER TO THE UNAUTHORISED OCCUPANTS.
