HP to set up revenue tribunals to evacuate encroachments: CM

Written by: Staff

Shimla, Mar 16 (UNI) Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today said his government was considering a proposal to set up special revenue tribunals to remove encroachments from government land.

The government had launched a special campaign to remove encroachments from the government land, especially from the forest areas, he said, while presiding over a meeting of the District Shimla Planning Development and 20-Point Programme Committee meeting here.

Mr Singh said a large number of encroachments had been removed and the process was on to remove other encroachments at the earliest.

No encroachment over the forest land would be regularized, he said, adding that encroachment upon government land would be considered sympathetically.

He said the government had also decided to allot two biswas of land to the houseless and landless families uniformally in rural and urban areas.

Land would be acquired where no government land was available for allocation to such beneficiaries, he said.

The chief minister said the government had also appealed to the encroachers to voluntarily surrender their encroached land to the local authorities to save themselves from legal actions.
