Encroachment of Cremation Ground and Grazing Land

By CJ Ramesh Kumar


There is 490 Kanal approximately State grazing Land situated at village Ramnagar Kirian District Kathua which has been illegally occupied encroached by some persons of the area. There are two Cremation Grounds One is for village Ramnagar and second is for village Old Ramnagar situated in said grazing Land but the Cremation Ground which is meant for village Old Ramnagar has been occupied by some persons and Parali that is Straw of Paddy and Dry straw have been placed there. We asked the illegal occupants numerously to evacuate the said material from our Cremation Ground but in vain. Moreover the State Grazing Land cannot be occupied by anybody under section 133 of State Land Revenue Act 1996 and liable to be evicted forthwith under the said act and various other standing rules Honble High Court instructions but no action has been taken by any of the concerned departments which is a great loss to state exchequer under section 133 of Land Revenue Act 1996 as the Govt. is liable to impost Rs. 500.00 per day on every illegal encroacher till its contravention which is not being imposed. Kindly take up the matter with State Revenue Secretary to take strict action under law.
