TSG Bhasker demands for permitting Conversion of Land to House Sites and Commercial in A&N Islands

Port Blair, May 13: In a letter given to the Lt. Governor, A&N Islands on Tuesday, Mr. TSG Bhasker, Chairman, Campaign Committee, ANTCC has requested for permitting the conversion of land to house sites and commercial so that the people of A&N Islands can construct their houses and start new businesses.

Mr. Bhasker highlighted that a large number of people who own hilly and paddy land are facing acute difficulties for constructing their houses as the Revenue Department is denying permission for land conversion/diversion.

He added that many people especially the Government servants have invested their lifetime and savings in Andaman & Nicobar Islands with a dream to build a home in their own land but due to the regressive policies of Administration they are unable to construct houses as their land is not getting converted to house sites.

“Moreover, many people have taken loans from banks for construction of their house and they are forced to pay huge interest unnecessarily from the last 5 years due to the land conversion being stopped by the Administration” , said Mr. Bhasker.

He also criticized the Administration for issuing notice to land owners for illegal construction of houses in their land.

He further stated that land conversion has affected the business community in a very big way.  He stated that youths who have no Government jobs and want to start their own business are not able to start the business because of their land not being converted and the banks are refusing to give loans in this context.

Hence to solve this issue, Mr. Bhasker has requested the Lt. Governor to take immediate steps for permitting conversion of land to house sites and commercial.
