The New Property Damage Recovery Law : Panchkula

The Fact News Service,
Panchkula, May 27,
The new property damage recovery law enacted by the government gives freedom to anyone to agitate but does not allow them to have wrong intentions under the guise of agitation. The Property Damage Recovery Bill -2021, passed after a huge uproar in the budget session of the Legislative Assembly, has now become law after the seal of Governor Satyadev Narayan Arya. On the lines of the Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh, now in Haryana too, provision has been made for the recovery of heavy fines from miscreants to jail. After the enactment of the new law, the state government is now engaged in the exercise of creating a property damage recovery tribunal. The name of a retired senior judge will be decided for the chairman of the tribunal after talking to the Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court.  It will also include an officer in the rank of Director General of Police. The tribunal will also appoint a Claim Commissioner further. The special thing is that the tribunal will neither be permanent nor for the entire state. This will only work in districts where violence or loss of government property has occurred. Victims will make their complaints to the Deputy Commissioners, after which action will be taken not only on those who damage the property but also those who invoke or lead the riots. Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij says that if personal and government property is damaged in a systematic manner in the name of the movement, then it cannot be called a democratic movement. It is necessary to determine the accountability of the leadership of the movements that harm citizens and government property. We will ensure that no injustice is done to anyone.
