The Uttar Pradesh government has launched a special campaign ‘Varasat’ (natural succession) to curb property & land-related disputes in rural areas. This is a first of its kind campaign in the state which aims to put an end the land-related issues in the rural areas and eradicate the exploitation of the villagers over succession rights by land mafias, who generally target disputed properties. The two-month-long special drive will continue till 15th February 2020.
Key Feature of Varasat scheme
- Under the arrangements, the villagers will get both online and offline facilities for registering their ‘Varasat’.
- For the people who have landed in the village but they are living at some other place, a special counter will be opened at the Tehsil-level where they can apply for the same.
Benefits of the scheme:
- People will get proper paper documents for their land property.
- They can even avail loans from banks.
- It would be helpful in minimising disputes and animosity within families and relatives.
- Villagers would also get rid of facing lawsuits, that sometimes trail for generations.
- All the information related to such land will be uploaded on the website of the revenue board based on which the progress of the scheme will be reviewed.
