Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly Speaker Nadendla Manohar has said that the Government of India was the largest NGO in the world administering as well as providing services to one billion people.

The sheer complexity of administering a diverse nation and the multitude of services aimed at inclusive development made it a daunting task, Mr. Maonhar said after inaugurating the Revenue Sadassu at this village in Tenali rural limits.

The State Government had made allocations to the tune of Rs.24,000 crore to providing various subsidies out of the total budget outlay of Rs.1,60,000 lakh crore and this spoke volumes for the State Government’s commitment to the poor and the downtrodden.

The Revenue Sadassulu were aimed at solving the grievances over the possession of land and in the year 2012, the State Government had received six lakh applications out of which more than 90 per cent had been solved. In the year 2013, the Government was expecting more than 7 lakh applications, he said.

Chief Commissioner of Land Administration P.K Mohanty said that A.P Government had so far distributed 75 lakh acres among the weaker sections in the state, which was far more than the land distributed in Communist ruled states.

To alleviate the suffering of tenant farmers, the Government was distributing loan eligibility cards, he said.

Computerisation

The computerisation of village land records was underway and is expected to be completed soon, he said.

Stating that the Government was giving top priority to providing online services, he said the Government planned to introduce 160 services through Mee Seva by the end of the year.
