DIMAPUR, SEP 9 (NPN) | Publish Date: 9/9/2020 1:12:24 PM IST

 Taking note of some non-indigenous inhabitants of Nagaland “illegally acquiring landed property” through sale and purchase in Dimapur district, the Chakhroma Public Organisation (CPO) executive meeting held on Wednesday, resolved to reaffirm Angami Public Organisation (APO)’s February 8, 2016 resolution and strictly stand by provisions of Nagaland Revenue Regulation (Amendment Act) 1978.

CPO president Vichütuolie Mere and joint secretary Vimhalie Medom pointed out that the Act prohibits non-indigenous inhabitant of Nagaland to acquire or possess any land by way of transfer, exchange, lease agreement or settlement. CPO reaffirmed the APO resolution not to recognise any transfer of land by way of sale or otherwise in violation of the Amendment Act of 1978 and all such illegal transactions within its jurisdiction would be treated as null and void.

CPO also urged the deputy commissioner (DC) Dimapur to declare all the illegal transaction as null and void and cancel all such illegal documents registered with the Registering Authority in order to protect the interest of the indigenous inhabitant of Nagaland.

CPO stated that transfer of land to any person other than indigenous inhabitant of Nagaland was illegal and detrimental to the interest of the indigenous inhabitant of Nagaland and the same was a blatant violation of the Amendment Act of 1978. CPO has appealed to the revenue authority to look into all executed documents executed in violation of the Amendment Act of 1978 and take corrective measures by declaring all illegal transactions as null and void and cancel all such registrations at the earliest so as to avoid untoward incidents.

Further, CPO appealed to all the revenue authorities/sub-registrars not to register any document evidencing transaction for such illegal acquisition or possession of any land in favour of non-indigenous inhabitant of Nagaland.

For any public utility such as educational institution or medical institution, the CPO resolved that the concerned non-indigenous individual/individuals or party/parties intending to set up such institutions may prior to taking permission/sanction from the State Government obtain “No Objection Certificate” from CPO. It also appealed to all other tribal Hohos of Nagaland to adopt similar firm positive stand taken by APO/CPO in the larger interest of the future generations.

Meanwhile, in connection with NSCN (I-M)/NNPGs talk with Centre, CPO has reaffirmed its stand adopted on September 26, 2019 to uphold the Naga Plebiscite of 1951.
