Gazette on issuing legal documents to those occupied State lands cancelled

The Gazette Extraordinary titled “Expedite the issuance of legal documents to those who have occupied or developed State lands without any document” has been cancelled. The previous gazette notice numbered 2192/36 was published by the Land Commissioner General on September 10. The previous gazette made it possible for individuals who had occupied state lands where they had either constructed houses or used it for agricultural purposes to apply for ownership. This was an islandwide program except for state lands occupied in the Colombo or Gampaha districts. According to the new gazette “It is hereby informed that the notice published by the Land Commissioner General, under the caption “Expedite the issuance of legal documents to those who have occupied or developed State lands without any document”, in the Gazette Extraordinary No. 2192/36 and dated 10th September 2020 is cancelled,” the new gazette said.
