Property in Shimla is attracting many investors and end-users / buyers due to its pollution-free environment and excellent weather conditions. There is a huge demand for good residential projects or properties in Himachal.
To cater to the demand of residential units in Himachal few developers took a step forward and launched projects with flats and cottages in various parts of Himachal.
If you look at housing projects in Himachal, there are few challenges one has to face. Mainly the registration of the property in Himachal Pradesh. It is very tough as one should have to have the approval from the Govt under section 118.
“As per the New section 118 of the Tenancy Act 1972, a non-Himachali or people who don't have domicile cannot buy land in Himachal Pradesh. You may buy non-agricultural land by seeking permission from the Himachal government.”
The Govt of Himachal restricted the outsiders from buying a property in the state to control the population and limited land resources. The idea behind the restriction is that the agricultural land is very limited in Himachal and the people who have lands have very small chunks of lands with them. The time when the Tenancy Act passed the state’s major economy depends upon agriculture
Due to restrictions in Himachal about buying a property in Himachal, there is a less number of flats available in Kasauli Himachal. Mainly if anyone wants to buy property or flat in Himachal, one should have the domicile of Himachal. But there are few projects who got the special approval from the govt under section 118 where Non-Himachali can buy property in the state.
