Rajasthan Govt. to amend Section 90B of Land Conversion Rules

Rajasthan Government has decided to abolish section 90B of the Rajasthan Land Conversion Rules for removing anamolies in the procedure of change in land use. The state cabinet which met here under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, has approved the proposal of the Urban Development Department for the purpose. Some amendments have also been proposed into section 90A of the Act for incorporating some of the clauses/provisions of the dropped section, Urban Development Minister Shanti Kumar Dhariwal said. This would simplify the process of land conversion and would make it more transparent, he said adding that an Ordinance was being issued to implementing the decision.
Much hue and cry was raised over alleged misuse of abolished section during the previous BJP regime and the ruling Congress in its manifesto had promised during the last assembly elections that it would prevent misuse of the section and corruption under its cover. Besides this, the Cabinet also approved proposal of amendment in the Nursing Council Act. The Cabinet also gave its nod to proposal for construction of a mega convention centre in Sitapura, with some minor amendments.
