Revenue – Assignment of House sites

The policy of the Government is to grant free house–sites to the houseless poor. Based on this, house site assignment is given to eligible house-less poor from the available land set apart for village sites under Revenue Standing Order 21. As per R.S.O.21 (6), Revenue Divisional Officer/ District Collector are empowered to change the classification of various types of unobjectionable Government poramboke lands when the existing village site is not sufficient for the needs of these house–less poor persons. Assignable lands, except objectionable porambokes, such as water course, are assigned to the eligible house–less poor persons.

Free house–sites are assigned to house-less people having an annual income below Rs.30,000/- in Rural areas and below Rs.50,000/- in Urban areas. House sites are assigned only in favour of the woman member of the family. As per the existing rules, three cents in villages, one and half cents in Municipal areas and one cent in Corporation areas are assigned to each eligible household.
