The rightful residents of the North and East who have lost documents and deeds of ownership to their property due to the civil war will be issued with ‘Land Ownership Certificates’ (LOCs), the Land Ministry said today.

The Bimsaviya’ programme which will be in operation between 2011 and 2013 would provide a much awaited solution to the land disputes in the North and East and help expedite the resettlement programme, Minister of Land and Land Development Janaka Bandara Tennakoon said

“The government is aware of the difficulties people face in getting back their houses and properties which they were compelled to abandon during the war. This has severely affected the resettlement programme. Our goal is to identify the lawful owners and resettle them on their own land,” the Minister said.

The Minister added that all relevant government departments and agencies would be involved in carrying out the ‘Bimsaviya’ programme in the Districts of Vavuniya, Jaffna, Mulaithivu, Mannar and Kilinochchi. (SAJ)

    Tamils must have Equal Rights, but that does not mean having Exclusive Rights to lands in the North and East of the country. If any persons of any other ethnic group were displaced, they must be give back their lands.

    Very true Bandara. Most of the lands owned by high cast tamils were distributed to low cast tamils who supported LTTE

    Anyone can own land in any part of the country. However, it does not mean colonizing state lands by a group of people for political purposes.

    Bandaraa. Friday, 12 November 2010 02:16 PM

    The Tamil politicians ( L.T.T.E ) and the Tamil Catholic church are the culprits for the destruction that was created in the north and East. They were active supporters of Prabakaran.. They even grabbed land from ordinary Tamils and gave it to tiger supporters.
