Guwahati: The Assam government is considering banning the sale of land to “non-locals” in the state near Batadrava than.
This was announced by Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday (September 25).
CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said the Assam government was considering enacting a law that would bar “non-locals” from buying land within an eight-km radius around the historic Batadrava than.
It may be mentioned here that Batadrava in Nagaon district of Assam is the birthplace of the 16th century Neo-Vaishnavite reformer Srimanta Srimanta Sankardeva.
The Assam Chief Minister said, “We are considering bringing a law, which will ban the sale of land around Battadrawa to ‘non-locals’.”
Meanwhile, the Assam Chief Minister has directed the District Commissioner (DC) of Nagaon to restrict the sale of land around Batadrava to “non-locals”.
Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the law in this regard will be presented in the state assembly by February next year.
“People who have lived for at least 100 years will be able to buy and sell land in the area,” CM Sarma said.
