Gairan will not remove the houses on the land as encroachment; A big decision of the state government, two and a half lakh families will benefit

CM Eknath Shinde On Gairan Land :  Today, the state government has taken an important decision regarding encroachment on Gayran land. The Maharashtra Cabinet has taken a decision today that the houses of the poor on Gayran land will not be removed as encroachment.  About 1.5 million families in the state will get benefit from this. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde had assured that we will take strategic decisions to provide relief to the encroachers of Gayran land. 

According to the order of the Supreme Court, the revenue department has issued notices to the concerned regarding the removal of encroachment on Gayran land. But it is not right to evict the houses of these poor, Sudhir Mungantiwar insisted. Responding positively to their demand, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis said that no encroachment of any person will be removed. Sudhir Mungantiwar has also said that the state government will file a petition in the Supreme Court in this regard.

Two lakh 22 thousand 382 people’s houses in the state are on government land. Since they are encroachments, the Revenue Department has issued notices to each of them regarding the removal of encroachments. But since it is not possible to evict the houses of these poor people, the government has decided to test whether it is possible to create townships in these places.

Gairan land near a village or city has been built by destitute people many years ago. Many of them do not even have their own place to live. Because of that, the state government is in favor of not removing their encroachment on the Gairan land. For these people, the state government is going to seek appeal in the Supreme Court, the proceedings are going to be initiated to withdraw the notices to those who have been issued notices regarding encroachment. This will provide relief to over two lakh families in the state.
