New Delhi, March 10, 2017: The Rajya Sabha on Friday passed the controversial Enemy Property Bill amidst an opposition walkout.

The Bill amends the Enemy Property Act, 1968, to vest all rights, titles and interests over enemy property in the custodian and declares transfer of property by the enemy as void.

This applies retrospectively to all transfers that have occurred under the Act.
