Now make your dream home in Kashmir, the new land law approved by the central government

Srinagar: The
 central government has made major changes in the law on land ownership in Jammu and Kashmir. Accordingly, now any citizen of the country can buy land in Jammu and Kashmir for his house or business. After the repeal of the provisions of Sections 370 and 35-A on August 5, 2019, it was quite possible that the sale and purchase of land would be allowed soon.

Before August 2019, Jammu and Kashmir had its own separate constitutional system. Under it, only permanent citizens of Jammu and Kashmir (who have a certificate of permanent citizenship of the state) were allowed to buy land. No citizen of any other state could buy land in Jammu and Kashmir for his house, shop, business or farm.

The Union Home Ministry on Monday evening issued an ordinance in this regard for agricultural land only for the people of the state . Under it, any citizen of any state of the country can now buy land for building a shop or business in Kashmir without any difficulty. It will no longer require the formality of any kind of domicile or state subject. However, domicile will be required to purchase agricultural land.

The Home Ministry said in a statement that the order would be called the third order, 2020, to reorganize the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir (in line with central laws). This command has been implemented with immediate effect. The Order states that the General Order Ordinance, 1897 applies to the definition of this Order as it deals with the definition of laws applicable in the territory of India.

LG Manoj Sinha said, "We want industries to come to Kashmir."
Jammu and Kashmir Vice Governor Manoj Sinha said, "We want outside industry to come to Jammu and Kashmir. That is why investment in industrial land is required. However, the farmland will be for the people of the state only.

Omar Abdullah said those with less land would have trouble

Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah criticized the Centre's decision, tweeting: Purchasing non-agricultural land will reduce the dominance of the locals and facilitate the acquisition of agricultural land. Jammu and Kashmir is now open for sale and people with small lands will have to suffer.
