Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar, Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor; Atal Dulloo, Chief Secretary; Mandeep Kumar Bhandari, Principal Secretary to LG attended the meeting.
The policy envisages incentives in the form of reimbursement of 100% ‘Stamp Duty’ on the purchase of land, reimbursement of 100% of ‘Change of Land Use (CLU) Charges’ and 100% reimbursement of ‘Registration Charges’ on sale deed.
