"Gujarat announces new policy for increased land holding for Kutch district, simplifying the age-old unscientific method"

Gandhinagar, Tuesday: Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today announced new policy for increased land holding for entire Kutch district, particularly for the farmers, with a view to simplify the age-old unscientific method based on estimates now in force and to remove inconsistencies.

Greeting the people of Kutch as a gift on the eve of Kutchi New Year Asadhi Bij, Mr. Modi declared the decision after consultation with Revenue Minister Revenue Minister Anandiben Patel. He wished the people of Kutch district, developing at the fastest growing rate in India, would flourish in the agriculture sector too, besides tourism and industrial. The state government is committed to provide multifarious facilities for the development of Kutch, he said.

It has been necessitated after the process of redrawing the land holding had begun. It is expected to solve thousands of case of settlement of disputes or to convert agricultural land into non-agricultural purposes, often resulting into misinterpretation of the clauses resulting in accumulation of disputed cases with the revenue department. The salient features of the new policy are as follows:

- The land holding would be settled after recovering 20 per cent of the increased area as premium, keeping intact prevailing conditions concerning thoroughfare roads, bund, footpaths, water channels and other public places. - The jantri rates of all original land holdings in all rural areas, including nagarpalikas, will be decided after deducting 20 per cent of the increased area at the prevailing rates. In case of more than 20 per cent, it would be settled after recovering double jantri rates of additional land. - Several cases of discrepancies that had cropped up earlier, causing widespread dissent among land holders, are being settled. - The entire process is being decentralized empowering the Collector to settle 40 per cent of total area with financial limit of Rs.15-lakh (four acres of land), with a view to solve problems of small farmers and land holders. - In case the area is more than the aforesaid area or value, the power to settle the issue will rest with the government. - The earlier orders settled as per the old extra land would not be entitled for review, but could be considered in case of wrong interpretation due to huge discrepancy. - In case there is survey number in old records but left out in new records, such cases could be settled as per the new policy, with a view to benefit the land holders.

Explaining the Chief Minister’s praiseworthy decision, Ms Patel hoped additional decision would remove all inconsistencies, decentralization with a view to provide maximum benefits with minimum efforts for inclusion of records of right to the local people, facilitating loans from banks and financial institutions, solving application for conversion into non-agriculture purpose, reducing the burden of the revenue department for rapid development with employment opportunity.

At the invitation of the President of the European Council Mr. Charles Michel, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the India-EU Leaders’ Meeting today.

The meeting was held in a hybrid format with the participation of leaders of all the 27 EU Member States as well as the President of the European Council and the European Commission. This is the first time that the EU hosted a meeting with India in the EU+27 format. The meeting was the initiative of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

During the meeting, the leaders expressed their desire to further strengthen the India-EU Strategic Partnership based on a shared commitment to democracy, fundamental freedoms, rule of law and multilateralism. They exchanged views on three key thematic areas: i) foreign policy and security; ii) COVID-19, climate and environment; and iii) trade, connectivity and technology. They discussed forging closer cooperation on combating the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recovery, tackling climate change, and reforming multilateral institutions. India appreciated the prompt assistance provided by the EU and its member states to combat its second COVID wave.

The leaders welcomed the decision to resume negotiations for balanced and comprehensive free trade and investment agreements. Negotiations on both the Trade and Investment Agreements will be pursued on parallel tracks with an intention to achieve early conclusion of both agreements together. This is a major outcome which will enable the two sides to realise the full potential of the economic partnership. India and the EU also announced dedicated dialogues on WTO issues, regulatory cooperation, market access issues and supply chain resilience, demonstrating the desire to deepen and further diversify economic engagement.

India and the EU launched an ambitious and comprehensive ‘Connectivity Partnership’ which is focused on enhancing digital, energy, transport and people-to-people connectivity. The Partnership is based on the shared principles of social, economic, fiscal, climate and environmental sustainability, and respect for international law and commitments. The Partnership will catalyse private and public financing for connectivity projects. It will also foster new synergies for supporting connectivity initiatives in third countries, including in the Indo-Pacific.

India and the EU leaders reiterated their commitment to achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and agreed to strengthen joint efforts for mitigation, adaptation and resilience to the impacts of climate change, as well as providing means of implementation including finance in the context of COP26. India welcomed the EU’s decision to join CDRI.

India and the EU also agreed to enhance bilateral cooperation on digital and emerging technologies such as 5G, AI, Quantum and High-Performance Computing including through the early operationalization of the Joint Task Force on AI and the Digital Investment Forum.

The leaders noted with satisfaction the growing convergences on regional and global issues, including counterterrorism, cybersecurity and maritime cooperation. The leaders acknowledged the importance of a free, open, inclusive and rules-based Indo-Pacific and agreed to closely engage in the region, including in the context of India’s Indo-Pacific Ocean’s Initiative and the EU’s new strategy on the Indo-Pacific.

Coinciding with the Leaders’ Meeting, an India-EU Business Roundtable was organised to highlight the avenues for cooperation in climate, digital and healthcare. A finance contract of Euro 150 million for the Pune Metro Rail Project was signed by the Ministry of Finance, Government of India, and European Investment Bank.

India-EU Leaders Meeting has set a significant milestone by providing a new direction to the Strategic Partnership and giving a fresh impetus for implementing the ambitious India-EU Roadmap 2025 adopted at the 15th India-EU Summit held in July 2020.
