Delhi government’s proposal for sale and purchase of properties on private land in recently regularized colonies is approved. The state governments’ re-classification of the definition of private land will now be notified through an order.
The urban developments department has made out case for legitimizing these privately held lands that appeared in land records as being earmarked. The department said that in 312 regularized colonies land was notified for acquisition but remained in private land. The state therefore has sought sale and purchase of land after their de-notification under the Land Acquisition Act.
