CBI probe into land transfer anomalies

RANCHI: The Sadan Vikas Parishad, an umbrella organization of tribal
and non-tribal people who have been living in Jharkhand for many
years, on Sunday demanded a CBI inquiry into the alleged
irregularities in transfer of lands of SC/ST and OBC category to the
people of general category in the past.
The demand came after a recent order of the Jharkhand high court in
which it has ruled that land of not only SC/ST but also of OBC
category could not be transferred to people from general category
violating the Chotanagpur Tenancy (CNT) Act and the Santhal Pargana
Tenancy (SPT) Act.
Spokesperson for the parishad Satyaprakash Mishra said acres of land
of SC/ST and OBC category people had been transferred to people from
general category in the past in different parts of the state in
connivance with officials. "We want that the state government should
order a CBI inquiry so that the officers who helped transfer of land
illegally and manipulated the land records are identified and
punished," Mishra said.
The parishad also demanded amendments in the two acts so that the land
could be mortgaged by the owners to get loan from banks. At present,
the tribal people don't get loan from banks as the two acts prohibit
mortgaging of land.
