The Assam Chief Minister – Himanta Biswa Sarma noted that the state government is striving to provide land rights to indigenous people based on self-certification.

The self-certification will highlight that the claimant has been residing on the land for the last three generations.

Lack of land ownership, leads to insecurity in the minds of the people, which is exploited by anti-social elements, stated the CM.

The CM urged the targeted beneficiaries to avail benefits of ‘Mission Basundhara 2.0’, launched specifically for the purpose.

Data from the National Register of Citizens (NRC), which is yet to be notified, and other such sources will be considered for taking any decision in such cases, he said.

Speaking at the launch of Mission Basundhara 2.0 here, the chief minister said, “The Mission is for the indigenous people and is based on self-certification, which will state that the claimant has been residing on the land for the last three generations.

“Whenever there is any doubt, the Circle Officer will conduct an inquiry. They are not to be in any haste to settle doubtful cases. These can be settled later also based on NRC and other such documents.”

The first phase of Mission Basundhara was launched last year to provide a time-bound solution to several services under the revenue department.
