New Gazette Extraordinary to address land issues cancelled
Steps were taken to cancel a Gazette Extraordinary that was issued to expedite issuance of legal documents to those who occupied state lands.
The Gazette Extraordinary titled “Expedite the issuance of legal documents to those who have occupied or developed State lands without any document” was issued on September 10, this year by the Land Commissioner General. Its cancellation was issued yesterday (22).
Under this, the Land Commissioner General called for applications from across the country, except Gampaha and Colombo, to select those living in permanent houses, carrying out agricultural work or other businesses.
