- On September 13, 2021, the state assembly passed the Rajasthan Laws (Second Amendment) Bill, 2021 by voice vote. With this, the old population in urban areas and the people occupied with rights on non-agricultural land will be able to get free hold pattas.
- Autonomous Governance Minister Shanti Kumar Dhariwal said during the discussion in the house that there are many people in the state who are occupying old population and non-agricultural land in urban areas with rights, but they do not have their lease.
- This provision is already there in Section 69-A of the Municipal Act. By making some improvements in it, the leasehold is being made freehold in 69-A by amending the City Improvement Trust Act.
- According to this bill, if any person has a lease or order issued under any other law, in which land has been allotted, then after surrendering his rights on that land, a provision has been made to give free hold lease.
- Due to this, the landholder will be able to use the benefits that a free landholder has. In this view, amendments have been proposed in the Jaipur Development Authority, Jodhpur Development Authority and Ajmer Development Authority, City Improvement Trust and Municipality Act.
- In this Bill, by replacing section 43 of the UIT Act, a provision has been made that notwithstanding anything contained in the Land Revenue Act, 1956, all the lands mentioned in section 103, such as roads, roads, etc., lands of public use, transit. Lands for community use, crematoriums, graveyards, etc., lands defined in section (5), (24) of the Tenancy Act shall be deemed to be included in the UIT, but the unclaimed land mentioned in section 103(a)(2) shall not be included in the UIT.
- These provisions will have an overriding effect on the Land Revenue Act, as in all the three Acts of the Authorities. This provision is already there in the Act of Jaipur Development Authority, Jodhpur Development Authority and Ajmer Development Authority.
- The bylaws and rules of boundary wall area, heritage and restricted area are made separately. The same rules would apply there.
