After Arunachal Pradesh started the process to confer land rights on the state’s citizens, the state government has also moved towards digitising its Arunachal Pradesh land record. Recall here that under the Arunachal Pradesh (Land Settlement and Records) Act of 2000, residents of the state did not have land titles, as the real land ownership continued to rest with the state government.

Land possession certificate in Arunachal Pradesh

Before the Arunachal Pradesh Land Settlement and Records Amendment Bill was passed in 2018, land in Arunachal Pradesh was held under customary laws of the many tribes living in the north-eastern state and no document conferring the Arunachal Pradesh land record title was given to the people. Apart from government land, most of the land across Arunachal Pradesh was owned by communities and not individuals. Although people had Land Possession Certificates (LPCs) for the plots which belonged to them, it did not give them ownership rights. As a result, Land Possession Certificate-holders were not able to apply for loans using the land as collateral. They were also not able to provide their land on lease for a long term.

The new bill confers Arunachal Pradesh land record and ownership rights to indigenous tribal people, including communities and clans possessing LPCs. Recognising people’s right over land, the bill gives them the right to give their land on a long-term lease of up to 33 years.

“With this legislation, huge investments from outside is expected, which will augment the economy of the state. Land can now be mortgaged for obtaining loans from banks as the formal channels of credit has been opened,” the state government said in an official release after the bill was passed on March 12, 2018.

Key facts about land ownership in Arunachal Pradesh

While Indian land acquisition law recognises only individual ownership, large tracts of land in Arunachal Pradesh are commonly held by tribal communities.

Interestingly, unlike north-eastern states like Nagaland and Mizoram, where land acquisitions take into account customary laws under the special status conferred upon them through Articles 371A and 371G of the Indian Constitution, Arunachal Pradesh has no special status. Despite that, customary land holding is still common.
