    Published on July 8, 2019

    Gujarat Assembly today passed two bills including the Gujarat Disturbed Area Act (Amendment) Bill, 2019.

    State Revenue Minister Bhupendra Chudasama also presented Gujarat Land Revenue (Amendment) Bill, 2019 in the house which passed both the bills.

    The amendment bill regarding Gujarat Prohibition of Transfer of Immovable Property and Provision for Protection of Tenants from Eviction from Premises in Disturbed Area Act has provisions for ban on transfer in immovable property in such areas and also for protection to the tenants in such areas which are generally communally sensitive.

    It has also changed the rules regarding granting permissions.

    Moving the bill in the house, State Revenue Minister Chudasama said that the State Government had received complaints about misuse of loop-holes of the existing act and the amendment bill has been prepared to take of care of it.

    Complaints were received that in disturbed areas in cities like Ahmedabad, Surat and Vadodara, the builders and others were getting the immovable properties transferred in the name of re-development of the property and using power of attorney. The other bill has made certain changes in the existing Land Revenue Act.
