Draft National Land Reforms Policy 2013

Draft National Land Reforms Policy 2013 The National Land Reforms Policy focuses on those aspects of land reforms which if implemented in true letter and spirit will have the potential to tilt the balance in favor of the landless and poor. These are the mechanisms of preparing a land use plan for every village getting aggregated at higher levels which will guide the best utilization of each and every parcel of land, putting in place policies and systems for ensuring effective distribution of land to landless poor, protecting them from losing their lands, restoration of alienated lands, effective safeguards for lands of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes, ensuring homestead rights, tenancy rights, land rights for the women and effective usage of common property resources. The Policy not only stresses upon the need to improve the delivery system with regard to litigations but also emphasizes the need to support the demand side by putting in place support systems for the poor which will help them in effectively liaisoning with the land administration department.
