property grievances

The lieutenant governor of Jammu and Kashmir Manoj Sinha on Tuesday launched an online portal (http://jkmigrantrelief.nic.in) for the registration of complaints by Kashmiri migrants about distress sale, encroachment or other grievances regarding property in the union territory. According to the government, applications filed on the portal will be addressed in a fixed timeframe under the Public Services Guarantee Act, 2011 by the revenue authorities.

The district magistrates, who are the competent authority, will have to undertake surveys or field verification of properties and update all registers within a period of 15 days and submit a compliance report to the divisional commissioner. In 1997, the government of Jammu and Kashmir had brought in the J&K Migrant Immovable Property (Preservation, Protection and Restraint on Distress Sale) Act, 1997 for preventing distress sale of properties belonging to migrants who were forced to leave in the aftermath of terrorism in the Valley. The services through the portal will be applicable to all migrants irrespective of their faith.

As per government data, 44,167 families are officially registered as Kashmiri migrant families. Those who are not registered as Kashmiri migrants but have fled from the Valley are also eligible to register their complaints on the portal, said a government official.

“Following complaints that despite the provisions of the Act, little has been done by way of restoring rights or preventing distress sales, the government has decided to launch the portal to allow all those who migrated to lodge their complaints and these will be addressed in a time bound manner,” said the official.

Any violation of the Act will be taken cognizance of by the district magistrates with timely action for eviction, custody and restoration of such properties, the official said.

Reliance Retail Store

Despite the formation of a Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, the Jammu bandh on Wednesday had an overall effect in protest against the continuing discrimination from the Jammu division and not taking care of the business interests of Jammu. As a result, business establishments remained closed in Jammu and other districts during the bandh.

 

Shops remained closed in most of the markets of Jammu city during the bandh. Except for medicine shops, all other shops have been closed since morning. Since today’s bandh was for the issues of the traders, the traders kept their shops closed without any coercion.

 

Supporting the Jammu bandh, on Wednesday, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court Bar Association also suspended work today. As a result, the lawyers did not appear during the hearing of the cases during this period, due to which the court work was also affected to some extent.

 

During the Jammu bandh, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry workers, Jammu demonstrated outside the Chamber House located at Railhead Complex. In contrast, the shopkeepers of Traders Federation Ware House-Nehru Market demonstrated outside the Ware House during the bandh. Warehouse traders mainly opposed the opening of Reliance Retail store, saying that they would oppose the government’s move till the end.

Federation head Deepak Gupta said that small shopkeepers would be ruined by opening such smart stores. Large scale small businesses will be closed. We are continuously appealing to the government to save the small businessmen, but no hearing occurs. Almost everything will be available in such a store. When such stores are opened, who will go to the small shops running in the street mohallas?

 

‘Until the government takes its step back, their protest will continue. Gupta said that today’s Jammu bandh is the beginning of this movement, and his struggle will continue in the days to come”, he added.
