Feb 12, 2016 13:00 IST

The Uttar Pradesh (UP) Land Revenue Act, 2015 became effective on 11 February 2016. The new code that unifies many Acts replaced at least 39 old land revenue acts.

The new revenue act also replaced the pre and post British era British era Land Revenue Act of 1901 and Zamindari Abolition and Land Reform Act 1950.

The Act will enable Dalits of the state to sell their land to non-Dalits without approval of the administration. It empowers rural women, as the new provisions ensure that wife gets equal rights on the gram samaj land given out on a lease. Earlier, women didn’t have their name on such lease.

Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on 6 February 2016 launched this new revenue code booklet at a programme in Lucknow.
