UP Government gave in-principle approval to give ownership rights to lease holder farmers

Jul 4, 2015 10:00 IST

The Uttar Pradesh Government on 4 July 2015 agreed to give in-principle approval to give ownership rights to aasami pattedar or lease holders of agriculture lands. The decision is expected to benefit lakhs of landless small farmers.

The decision was taken on the basis of recommendations of the Revenue committee that was set up by the government in 2012.

However, the decision will benefit only those aasami pattedars who were given the lease before 2000. Further, the ownership rights will remain non-transferable for the next 10 years.

Asaami pattedars are those farmers who were given lease of agriculture land by the zamindars before the Zamindari Abolition and Land Reforms Act, 1951.

They also include those farmers to whom some of the gram panchayats gave the land on lease basis for agricultural purposes without entailing any ownership rights.
