Earlier in February this year, Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had said that 6000 transit accommodations at an estimated cost of Rs 920 crore will come up in Kashmir while the land has been restored to Kashmiri migrant applicants in the last five years.
The Ministry of Home Affairs was responding to the queries raised in the parliament, including the number of properties that have been restored for the Kashmiri Pandits during the last five years and whether there is an agency that monitors and tracks the status of these properties and whether Government has taken ownership in the absence of the property holder.
