NRIs to get immediate property possession in Chandigarh Assetventures

Non Resident Indians (NRIs) having property in the union territory of Chandigarh can now gain immediate possession of both resedentian and non-residential property, officials said here Monday.

"We have received a notification from the union government regarding the extension of the East Punjab Urban Rent Restriction (Amendment) Act 2001 in the city. Now NRIs can have immediate possession of their property by just applying to the relevant authority," said the official spokesperson of the union territory here Monday.

He added: "Chandigarh administration had been for long urging the centre to make provisions or to devise a mechanism for safeguarding the properties of the NRIs having roots in Chandigarh."

Chandigarh already has an NRI cell, which was established Aug 15, to deal expeditiously with various representations and complaints received from NRIs.
