Jammu, July 28
The UT Revenue Department has withdrawn its 1971 round that required a no objection certificates (NOC) from the J&Okay Home Department for acquisition or requisition of land in favour of the Army, Border Security Force, Central Reserve Police Force and different comparable organisations.
The choice comes shut on the heels of the Administrative Council, headed by Lieutenant Governor Girish Chandra Murmu, giving its nod to the proposal for amending the Control of Building Operations Act, 1988, and the J&Okay Development Act, 1970, to supply for a particular dispensation for finishing up building actions by the armed forces on July 17. All such acquisitions would now be coated beneath the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement Act, 2013.
The Revenue Department, in its July 24 order, mentioned: “In view of the extension of the Right to Fair Compensation Act, 2013, to the UT, the circular that prescribed obtaining of an NOC from the Home Department for acquisition/ requisition of land in favour of the Army, BSF, CRPF and similar organisations is hereby withdrawn.” — TNS
