Future Land Policy

Future Land Acquisition Proposals


Housing : In view of huge  gap in demand and supply, the price of land  has gone terribly high and the residents of the city especially  the economically  the weaker  section, Low Income Groups and even the Middle Income Groups  are unable to purchase the land in the open market . Besides, the land purchased in open market is  undeveloped  without any basic infrastructure like roads, drains, water supply, electric infrastructure and sanitation and finally  the State Government provides  the infrastructure in these areas  at the cost of other  major infrastructure of the state. The  supply and  demand gap has also lead to encroachment   on River and Nallah  Banks and other State Lands including greenbelts  and water  bodies.

The Srinagar Development Authority has initiated acquisition of 4200 kanals of Rakhs land in Village Rakh-i-Gund-Aksha which has been transferred by the Government to SDA but the land is under the possession  of kamas  for which the SDA has to pay Rs. 1700.00 lacs as  compensation to kamas. This entire land  has been proposed  to be developed  in to a township .

 So far the land measuring 440 Kanals -10 marlas have been taken over by the SDA.


Urban Infrastructure:   1491 Kanals  16 Marlas of land  are under acquisition  at Nowgam Bye-Pass for development of required infrastructure  in front of Railway Station Nowgam.
