The development of land regulations in Indonesia is very diverse, one of which is in The Special Region of Yogyakarta (DIY). DIY was once a kingdom called the Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat Sultanate and the Kadipaten Pakualaman Keraton). Keraton Palace is the center of DIY government led by Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono as Governor, and Adipati Paku Alam as its deputy. Land regulations in DIY are subject to Law Number 5 of 1960 concerning Basic Agrarian Principles (UUPA). But there is a difference, namely the specialty of DIY which is regulated in Law Number 13 of 2012 concerning the Privileges of The Special Region of Yogyakarta, that Sultan has the right to regulate its own territory. Based on the history of DIY, there were frequent disputes between indigenous Indonesian citizens, with Chinese people who came to Indonesia. The research method used in this paper uses normative research methods, using journals, books, and legislation relating to the specialty of Yogyakarta. After reviewing the results of research from other researchers,found the facts that the dispute was caused by various factors which led to the stipulation of the Instruction of the Deputy Regional Head of DIY Number K.898/I/A/1975 concerning the Uniformity of the Policy for the Granting of Rights to Land to a Non-Native Indonesian Citizen. The instruction contained the prohibition for Indonesian citizens of Chinese descent to have a Property Rights Certificate (SHM) on land in DIY. This caused a reaction from Indonesian citizens of Chinese descent, many of them who sued but never succeeded. The Sultan has reason not to revoke the instruction. The legal politics behind these policies is an effort to increase local revenue (PAD), maintain the economic natures of indigenous people,and protect land which is an important asset for DIY.
