Why are so many returning refugees still landless? July 11, Nangarhar, People returning from Jalozai and Naser Bagh camps in Pakistan have found it difficult to find clean water in some of the places they have settled. Many found their houses destroyed or occupied, or discovered that a new set of laws had scrapped their tenancy rights.
The government plan for distributing land to them, and to IDPs, is now a decade old, but has been one of the most corrupt and ineffective government schemes. It became effective as of 22 December The decree guaranteed the proper treatment of returnees, their exemption from prosecution except for war crimes and crimes against humanity and the recovery of lost property.

According to Afghan law, customary, religious, legal and administrative documents are legitimate. Most landowners and tenants held and used their land on trust, under customary norms. These norms were community-based and sustained arrangements, which had evolved over time.
The shared conventions agreed that a certain field or house was owned by a certain family. Under the post land laws, people who had enjoyed customary usage rights over land, in fact, had no right to own the land. This made many people effectively landless.
