Besides this, a police station in13kanal, a veterinary hospital in three kanals and much other government and private organizations have brazenly occupied defense land. Army authorities had informed Nakodar residents in a reply under the Right to Information Act (RTI Act) that a hundred
acres of Army land encroached upon by govt and private organization at Nakodar are not entered in the Military land register maintained by defense estates office, (DEO) Jalandhar circle. The matter is being taken up with the revenue authorizes at Nakodar to sort out the discrepancies between official records held with Tehsil office Nakodar and DEO office, Jalandhar cantt to confirm the area of defense land which has been the encroachment by the govt and private organizations.
