Government has banned the sale and purchase of properties in Delhi that were left behind at the time of partition by people who chose to go to Pakistan. The Centre Government of India has already sent a list of 150 properties to the state government. According to a rough estimate there are close to 1000 such properties in the capital city.

Although, it is being reported that there will not be freezing of any land deal on the grounds that the property in question was enemy property.

It is also in speculation that one particular deal between a local dealer and a Dubai-based hotel chain in which an MLA is allegedly involved triggered the order.
