Now anyone can buy land in Jammu & Kashmir, Modi Govt. notifies land law

Srinagar : In Jammu and Kashmir, now any person of the country can buy land and settle there. On Tuesday, a new notification was issued by the Ministry of Home Affairs. However, the ban on farming land will continue.

According to Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, we want outside industries to be set up in Jammu and Kashmir, hence there is a need for investment in industrial land. But the farming land will remain only for the people of the state.

Earlier, only residents of Jammu and Kashmir could buy and sell land. But now people going from outside can also buy land and start their work there.

The Union Home Ministry has taken this decision under the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganization Act, under which any Indian can now buy land for a factory, house or shop in Jammu and Kashmir. For this, there will be no need to provide any proof of being a local resident.

Significantly, Jammu and Kashmir has been exempted from Article 370 only last year, after which Jammu and Kashmir became a union territory on 31 October 2019. Now, on the completion of one year of being a union territory, the law of the land has been changed.
