SC:Land belonging to Scheduled Castes or Tribes cannot be bought by Non-Dalits


Top Picks :  September 2012 Current Affairs, 2012 Current Affairs, IAS Main 2012, National | India

The Supreme Court of India on 20 September 2012 ruled that the land belonging to scheduled castes or tribes cannot be bought by non-dalits, including companies as such transactions are unconstitutional. A bench of justices KS Radhakrishnan and Dipak Misra gave the verdict on an appeal by the Rajasthan government against the state High Court's order holding such a sale to be valid in law.

The Rajasthan High Court had passed its order on an appeal by a private firm against the refusal by the state authorities to recognise or grant mutation to the purchase of a plot by the company from a person belonging to scheduled caste.

I belong to ST caste and have got married to non ST man.I am a govt.employee and after marriage I change my surname as per my husband surname in my Service book.Now I want to purchase a ST land. It is legal or not ? please suggest me.


Unfortunately this law is hurting SC/ST more than anyone else. They are not getting right value for their lands and plots because they do not have buyers. Their land are being bought by rich SC/ST for investment. Other scam is rich SC/ST who has more than 5bigha land can buy land from any SC/ST and immediately they can sell it to anyone else because rules says so. This too bad.
