Officials said the state revenue department has finally zeroed in on a big chunk of land spread over more than 200 kanals at Kanispora Johema on the outskirts of Baramulla district. They added that the state government has held talks with the owner of the land and he has reportedly agreed to give it to the government.

Revenue officials in Baramulla told The Indian Express that the land is being procured for a transit colony, like the ones the government has already set up for Kashmiri Pandit employees who volunteered to work in the Valley and were given government jobs.
