Punjab government is contemplating to grant land ownership rights of allotted nazool land to the members of State Nazool Land Cooperative Societies. This was assured by Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia while presiding over a meeting of a delegation of members of Punjab Nazool Land Cooperative Societies, which has called on him today at his office in Punjab Civil Secretariate demanding exclusive land ownership rights of the society owned Nazool land for their society members.
