"The municipal bodies find managing such properties difficult, particularly in view of the fact that the ownership or possession of such properties have, in several cases, changed hands on numerous occasions and the Municipal bodies lack authentic documentation in this regard. Further, several municipal bodies are unable to even recover the rentals of such properties. "On a careful consideration, it was decided to transfer the ownership of these properties to such persons who are currently in justified possession of these properties," the statement said.

Giving details of terms and conditions of the policy, where the entire structure constructed by the municipal body is raised on the land and the land is to be transferred to a single occupier (irrespective of number of floors constructed there upon) base rate would be the chargeable price. Similarly, where the structure constructed by the municipal body is two storied and each of such storey is to be transferred to different occupier, then the chargeable price would be 60 per cent of base rate for the occupier of ground floor and 40 per cent of the base rate for the occupier of first floor.
