AMENDMENT TO RENT CONTROL ACTS 

 

1.         To enable the ex-Servicemen to take possession of their house/land for self utilization after retirement from service, it was proposed that States/UTs should amend their Rent Control Act and Land Reforms Acts in favour of ex-Servicemen. The Hon’ble Raksha Mantri, vide his letter dated 11 Oct 96, addressed to all the State Govts had requested the States/UTs which had not amended the Land Tenancy Acts and Rent Control Acts to do so on a time bound basis. Status of concessions extended by different States is given in succeeding pages. 

2.         States/UTs which have not amended the Rent Control Act and the Land Tenancy Act in favour of ex-Servicemen are requested to take immediate necessary action in this regard.
