There was no document that gives confirmation of the Arunachal Pradesh land record ownership to the people. Apart from government land, the individuals did not own the land across Arunachal Pradesh and was owned by communities. Even after having the Land Possession Certificates (LPCs) for the plots which proves that the particular land belongs to them, still it did not give them ownership rights. 

Thus, it became tough as Land Possession Certificate-holders were not able to apply for loans using their land as collateral. It didn’t allow them to provide their land on lease for a long term.

Now, this new bill amendment gives Arunachal Pradesh land record and ownership rights to native tribal people. This particular change includes communities and tribes that possess LPCs. It recognises the ownership of land and provides them the right to give up their land on lease of up to 33 years.

As per the experts, this change will attract huge investments from outside that will boost the economy of the state. Easy loans by mortgaging the land can be done and formal channels of credit have been opened.
