About the Division

Introduction

The Freedom Fighters & Rehabilitation Division has two wings namely Freedom Fighters Wing & Rehabilitation Wing. Freedom Fighters Wing is responsible for matters relating to grant of Central Samman Pension and other welfare measures to the freedom fighters. The Rehabilitation Wing is dealing with residual matters relating to Relief & Rehabilitation of displaced persons from East & West Pakistan; rehabilitation assistance to Sri-Lankan Refugees/Repatriates from Sri-Lanka; and the Tibetan Refugees staying in India including grant of protected area permits for visits to the Tibetan Settlements; preservation and management of Enemy Properties in India.

Under package deals signed by Government of India with the State Governments in the early 70s, the work relating to the management and disposal of Evacuee Properties alongwith the relevant records, was transferred to the State Governments. All the five Acts relating to Relief & Rehabilitation of displaced persons from East & West Pakistan were also repealed in 2005. Any claims pending on the date of the repeal of the Acts are now to be settled by the respective State Governments under the existing laws/laws to be framed by them or under the General Clauses Act.
