SOME HILL STATIONS :OUT SIDERS CAN NOT BUY PROPERTIES

NEW DELHI : The  property laws are not same all over India .In some hilly areas and all tribal areas , out siders , even they are Indians , can not  purchase lands .It was not only article 370 , which did not allow out siders or non Kashmiris to buy lands in J & K .

This issue was not communal but regional in nature .But because J&K was the only Muslim majority state , communal colour was  given to article 370 , while there is no discussion on Article 371 .

Following is a brief account , where  outsiders are not allowed  to buy lands .But BJP has not created any issue :

 

In some hill states, outsiders are not allowed to buy land because of various political and historical reasons. Here is a quick look at some such states:

Jammu & Kashmir: Property in the state can be acquired only by permanent residents. Permanent Resident Status (PRS) was accorded to those who had been living in the state for at least 10 years before 14 May 1954.

Sikkim: Article 371F of the Constitution prohibits sale and purchase of land or property involving outsiders. Only tribals can purchase land and property in the tribal areas of the state. The entire north district of Sikkim, for instance, is a tribal area.

Arunachal Pradesh: The state falls under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution and in all such areas non-tribals cannot purchase land or property.

Similarly in Mizoram and Nagaland only resident tribals are permitted to own property.

If you are non-tribal or non-indigenous of Nagaland then most probably you won’t be able to buy the land as the tribal leaders have already adopted the rules for preserving their own land, culture and dignity. … Mizoram and Nagaland(excluding Dimapur) is protected by Article 371G and 371A of the Indian Constitution

the entire north district of Sikkim, for instance, is a tribal area. Arunachal Pradesh: The state falls under the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution and in all such areas non-tribals cannot purchase land or property. Similarly in Mizoram and Nagaland only resident tribals are permitted to own property

Mizoram and Nagaland(excluding Dimapur) is protected by Article 371G and 371A of the Indian Constitution.
So, ownership rights of Land is reserved for the indegineous people. However , land can be lend for business and other purposes within this area from the respective government for a specified period of time.
