50% women quota in Haryana panchayats

Chandigarh, July 23

The Haryana Government today announced 50 per cent quota for women in the Panchayati Raj Institutions as against the current 33 per cent reservation.

Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala, who also holds the Development and Panchayats Department portfolio, said a Bill to amend the Panchayati Raj Act would be introduced in the upcoming monsoon session of the Assembly.

Chautala said this was part of the common minimum programme of the BJP-JJP government. "The proposal will formally be placed before the Haryana Cabinet for approval soon," he added.

Chautala said in order to make information concerning land registry and "intkal" (mutation) public, the Revenue Department would upload a copy of e-jamabandi and registry deed on its website for both buyers and sellers to study before making a deal. This would help eliminate brokers.

In order to minimise human interference in tehsils, the government would introduce the concept of centralised registry after e-registry. This would allow people to get registry done at any tehsil after submitting documents, he asserted.

Given the current scenario, deputy commissioners had been directed to check registries in controlled areas (for Covid-19) within the municipal corporation limits under the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975, and submit a report within 15 days. — TNS
