Implement immovable Migrant Property Act 1997, in Toto: Yogi

Jammu, October 14, 2023: Kashmiri Pandits  living temporarily in exile for last more than three decades in several migrant camps and non camps  in Jammu and other parts of the country face many tough challenges and problems on day to day basis in their lives  and one  Such serious challenge   among them is   removal of illegal encroachments/unlawful possession on their  lands, shrines, temples  etc in the valley by some anti social elements at a number of places still and utter failure of the custodians  to restore, preserve and protect their lands under immovable migrant property act 1997, thus throwing all  winds to this law by  violating  the earlier clear cut  directives.

In a statement issued today, senior most Kashmiri Pandit leader Shri M. K. Yogi has expressed grave concern over the issue of restoration, preservation and protection of migrant lands in valley at a number of places from the illegal occupants and failure of concerned authorities  in discharging their assigned role as custodians of the migrant property under immovable migrant property act, 1997. 

Yogi has said the concerned custodians made  under immovable migrant property have miserably  failed at many places in valley in restoring and preserving the migrant lands from illegal occupants due to the non seriousness attitude at the lower level  despite clear cut directions from highest office in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir about the same. 

Yogi  has once again  appealed Lt. Governor union Territory  J&K to issue  clear cut directions again to the custodians to implement the migrant immovable property Act 1997 in true letter and spirit as well fix the accountability  of any lapse in such issues with severe punishments.
