Public Premises Bill introduced in Lok Sabha

In order to evict unauthorised occupants from public premises, Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday introduced a Bill in Lok Sabha to deal with the problem effectively.

The Bill redefines public premises to include companies in which at least 51 per cent of the paid-up share capital is held by the central and state governments, and which carries on the business of metro railway.  According to a senior UD Ministry official, the DMRC had requested that metro properties be declared as public premises by amending the Public Premises Act 1971 and to confer powers of Estate Officers on officers of DMRC to be appointed by the Centre for dealing with the problem.
