Jhapa's Kankai municipality has provided land ownership certificates to 20 landless squatters.

On the occasion of International Human Rights Day, the municipality distributed land ownership certificates to landless people in Kankai-8.

Municipality mayor Rajendra Pokharel said land ownership certificates were distributed to the impoverished people as the right to access land was also one of the human rights.

As informed, additional 120 land ownership certificates, including 30 in ward 8 and 90 in ward 5 of the municipality have also been prepared.

The municipality came up with a plan to distribute land ownership certificates to the landless people to manage unplanned settlements within the municipal area.

"The Land Act has authorized local level for data collection and land ownership certificates distribution", Pokharel said, adding that citizens here have been deprived of having land ownership for over six decades that would be put to an end with the municipality's recent interventions.
