New land laws for J&K, seven properties bought by outsiders in UT, all in Jammu: MHA

NEW DELHI: The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Wednesday informed that seven properties have been bought by outsiders in Jammu and Kashmir since new land laws for J&K were brought by the Central government.

Replying to a question, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Nityanand Rai elaborated that all the seven plots of land bought by people from outside J&K are located in Jammu and no such purchase has been made in the Kashmir Valley. In October last year, the central government notified new land rules allowing any Indian citizen to purchase non-agricultural land in the Union territory.  (The New Indian Express)
