Kerala Couple Along With 589 Others Receives Land For Them As NH 66 Became A Blessing For Them
- The enlargement of NH 66 turned out to be a blessing in disguise for this couple
- Kanhangad municipal chairperson K V Sujatha gave over the ownership title of a 10-cent plot in Madikai village to Rajan and Maimuna on Tuesday.
Rajan and his wife Maimuna have been residing in a shanty on the sideline of the national highway near Padannakkad's Nehru Arts and Science College for the past 15 years. The enlargement of NH 66 turned out to be a blessing in disguise for this couple, as revenue officials learned of their presence and began the process of obtaining a plot of land for them.
Meanwhile, the government gave along the land legal title to 589 persons in the district on Tuesday, making them proprietors. Over generations, many of them have been occupying government land without owning it. The Kerala Land Assignment Rules were used to transfer ownership of the plots.
