Scheme to confirm proprietary rights to small and marginal farmers soon: Himachal govt
The Himachal government is contemplating to bring out a scheme for conferment the proprietary rights to the small and marginal farmers of the State on government land, in order to provide them one time relief.

This was disclosed in a meeting of High Powered Committee constituted by the State Government to assess and review the encroachment cases in the State held here today under the chairmanship of Health, Revenue and Law Minister Kaul Singh Thakur.

The minister said that the State Government was committed towards welfare of the small and marginal farmers. 

He said that the State Government has drafted a scheme to protect the livelihood rights of the small and marginal farmers. However, the government was also committed to take strict action against the big encroachers as per the law, he added.

Thakur said a scheme to confer proprietary rights to a maximum of five bighas of land in rural areas had been prepared in such a manner that own land of the person and the land conferred did not exceed a total of 10 bighas, provided that the remaining land in possession was vacated.

He said that the proprietary rights were proposed to be conferred at nominal rates. For conferment of Proprietary Rights, the person would have to apply in writing to the concerned SDO (Civil) or Assistant Settlement Officers where settlement operations were in process.
