‘System had gone haywire after reforms initiated in 1983’

Land records after 1983 are in a disarray, and the YSRCP government has taken upon itself the task to clean them up, Deputy Chief Minister in-charge of Revenue Pilli Subhash Chandra Bose has said.

The reforms initiated then were responsible for the mess created in the system. Disputes between the revenue officials and the landowners were largely because of such faulty measures, Mr. Bose observed while addressing a review meeting in Nandyal on Saturday.

Survey from Oct. 2

“The government is now trying to roll the system back so that redress of grievances becomes easier,” he said.

The government would, therefore, embark on a land survey from October 2, he said, and added that 11,000 surveyors had been appointed for the purpose.

“The officials, right from the Village Revenue Officer (VRO) to the district Collector, will have to ensure that the exercise is taken up in right earnest. There should not be a mismatch of even one acre of land,” Mr. Bose told the officials.

Referring to the village and ward secretariat system, the Deputy Chief Minister said the government could provide jobs to over one lakh aspirants by launching the system, which, he claimed, was a first of its kind in the country.

Later, district Collector G. Veerapandian and Joint Collector P. Ravi gave a presentation on the land records and the extent of land identified to meet the housing target in the district.

Deputy Chief Minister in-charge of Housing C. Sri Ranganatha Raju, Finance Minister Buggana Rajendranath Reddy, Labour Minister G. Jayaram, MP P. Brahmananda Reddy, Legislative Council Whip Gangula Prabhakar Reddy, Principal Secretary (Housing) Ajay Jain, MLAs, and officials were present.
