Land Purchase Scheme

The aim of the schemes is to improve the land holding of Schedule Castes and to enhance their socio economic status in the state. The Government have issued orders for the exemption of 100% stamp duty for the registration of the land purchased under the scheme.


Maximum 30% of the project cost or Rs.2.25 lakhs whichever is less may be released as subsidy to each family.  The cost of land should be fixed as per the Govt. guidelines. The subsidy released is Front End subsidy.
