Rapid urbanization in developing countries has become a major planning issue of our times. Owning over 0.5 million hectares in a land starved nation, the government corporations in India own a very valuable and strategic resource which is key to economic and social development of the country in the years ahead. However, India’s governance challenges in the management of these public premises has received only modest attention in national and international discussions related to eviction laws, landlord-tenant dynamics, misuse of policy etc. Drawing upon diverse sources including court judgments, eviction records, audit reports, constitutional filings, parliamentary documents and legislative discussions from 1950 to 2020, this book aims to serve as a ready reference for practitioners and students of law, management, administration and governance for all topics related to removal of unauthorized occupation of public premises. Senior management of government agencies and organizations, in particular, will greatly benefit from the book’s lucid style of analysis and narration to curate an effective and robust legal-management system for the management of public premises in their custody. The book concludes with suggestions to effect removal of unauthorized occupants from public premises in India.
