1996 slum households get property rights in Punjab. • CS orders proprietary rights to 11,000 more slum dwellers

Chandigarh--In order to help the slum dwellers realise their dream of
having their own home, Punjab Chief Secretary, Ms Vini Mahajan, on
Saturday approved granting proprietary rights to 1996 slum households
in six districts under the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh’s
flagship slum development programme- ‘Basera’.
The approval was given at the third meeting of the steering
committee under the Basera scheme, chaired by the Chief Secretary,
here.
With this, Punjab has become the first state in the country
to launch a scheme for granting proprietary rights to the slum
dwellers occupying state government’s land in the slums of urban
areas.
The 1996 households, who have been given the proprietary
rights, were located at 24 slum sites in Patiala, Ludhiana, Mansa,
Ferozepur, Barnala and Kapurthala districts.
Reviewing the progress of the Basera scheme, the Chief
Secretary directed the Local Government department to complete the
household surveys so that the process to grant proprietary rights to
11,000 more slum dwellers is completed at the earliest.
Principal Secretary Local Government, Ajoy Kumar Sinha,
apprised the Chief Secretary that all the concerned Deputy
Commissioners have been asked to complete the surveys for
identification of eligible beneficiaries so as to grant them
proprietary rights.
Additional Chief Secretary Home Anurag Agarwal, ACS Rural
Development and Panchayats Seema Jain, Principal Secretaries Sarvjit
Singh (Housing and Urban Development), KAP Sinha (Finance), Vivek
Pratap (PWD) and other senior officials of the state government
attended the meeting.
