Chandigarh: Haryana Government has allowed
certain categories of occupants of evacuee land or properties
to get these transferred in their names, subject to certain
conditions.
Moreover, they have been asked to apply within six months
from January 25, 2011 to avail themselves of the benefit and
if such occupants fail to do so, they would be liable to be
evicted besides other action being taken, including recovery
of use and occupation charges, an official spokesman said in a
release issued here today.

He said the applicants who had applied for transfer of
property but their cases could not be finalised shall have to
apply afresh within six months from January 25, 2011.

Any person with disability, who is in unauthorised
occupation of evacuee property and applies for transfer, shall
be allowed a concession of 10 per cent of the price of the
land or property, he said.

Besides, no stamp duty shall be charged from disabled
persons. This concession will, however, be applicable only
where the property is transferred in his name exclusively, but
will not be applicable where only one of the persons to whom
the property is transferred has disability.
Occupants of rural or urban evacuee lands and properties
who are in possession from January 1, 2001 or earlier, are
eligible for transfer of lands or properties in their names,
subject to some conditions, at market price.

The spokesman clarified that occupants of all such
categories shall be liable to pay use and occupation charges
equivalent to 20 per cent of the price of land or properties
for the entire period. In case of government-built properties
which are in possession, the cost of superstructure shall also
be recovered in addition to the cost of land.
