Ghulam Nabi Azad granted 21 lakh acres of land in Jammu and Kashmir to unborn people.

There is insufficient publicly available evidence at the current time to accurately verify this claim.

There is insufficient publicly available evidence at the current time to accurately verify this claim. A Jammu-based NGO, Ikkjut Jammu, has released a report on the demographic invasion of Jammu. The Outlook reported that according to the sources, nearly 21 lakh acres of state and forest land had been encroached in Jammu and Kashmir by the land mafia in league with revenue officials over the past several decades. In the districts of Poonch, Rajouri, and Doda in Jammu province and other districts, a major scam had occurred wherein some corrupt revenue officers have mutated land in favor of those under notification of S-432, who were not even born in 1958. In 1970, when agrarian reforms were introduced as J&K Agrarian Reforms Act, the Congress government had banned LB-6 and the mutations made under S-432. Later, when Ghulam Nabi Azad became the Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir in November 2005, he deliberately removed the ban on S-432 to encourage the illegal transfer of state land to occupants born after 1958.

Lt Governor Girish Chandra Murmu Lt Governor Girish Chandra Murmu has given clear directions to the officials to complete the digitization of land records by July end as a final deadline.

However, there are no credible or official sources to prove whether Ghulam Nabi Azad granted 21 lakh acres land in Jammu and Kashmir in the name of unborn personnel.
