Evacuee Property

For efficient management and administration of Evacuee Properties, the Government of India promulgated Administration of Evacuee Property Act, 1950. The objects and reasons of the Act were to provide for administration of Evacuee Properties and for compensating the refugees who had lost their properties in Pakistan.

The Displaced Persons (Compensation and Rehabilitation) Act, 1954, provides for acquisition of Evacuee Property under Section 12 of this Act by Central Government and the payment of compensation to displaced persons.

The Evacuee Interest (Separation) Act, 1951, was also enacted to expedite the division and separation of Evacuee share from the non-evacuee share in joint or composite properties by Competent Officers and Appellate Officers appointed under the Act and not by ordinary Courts.

The Evacuee Properties were being managed, administered and disposed off as per the above aforesaid Acts by the Rehabilitation Ministry, Government of India and thereafter by Rehabilitation Division of Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India.

After the relief and rehabilitation work for displaced persons from West Pakistan was substantially over, it was decided to wind up the activities of the Settlement Wing of the Rehabilitation Division, Government of India. With this end in view, package deals/administrative and financial arrangements were worked out with various State Governments and evacuee land and properties were transferred to them for management and disposal. Therefore, the residuary work relating to composite properties, evacuee urban and rural properties and lands in Delhi was transferred to Delhi Administration for management and disposal vide order of Government of India. Ministry of home Affairs, dated 20.4.1989. Accordingly, sanction of the President was conveyed by Government of India to the following arrangements being made with the Delhi Administration for management and disposal of the residuary work in accordance with the Displaced Persons (Compensation and Rehabilitation Act, 1954) and rules framed there under:

Delhi Administration shall take over all litigation cases pending in Supreme Court, High Court, Civil Courts/Revenue Courts etc. relating to the above-mentioned properties in Delhi.

These properties were transferred with the condition that these should be utilised for specific purpose of slum clearance, not for any other purpose.
