Bhopal: People who have been landless for years are now seeing their dreams of becoming landowners coming into reality. The State Government has implemented Madhya Pradesh Waas Sthan Dakhalkar (Bhumi-swami Adhikaron Ka Pradan Kiya Jana) Sanshodhan Adhiniyam-2012 for the benefit of landless people residing on agriculture or government land for a long time.
