Allocate land to Grama Panchayats: DC

Madikeri: May 13, 2015: Deputy Commissioner Anurag Tewari has directed the Tahsildars and Revenue Inspectors to take steps to allocate cleared government lands, as per the requirements of various Grama Panchayats. Chairing a review meeting on land allocation at the Old Fort Hall, here, on Tuesday, the DC directed the officials concerned to allocate lands for residential sites, waste management units, crematorium, community toilets and other amenities. Directions were issued for clearing of encroached lands, as per the directions of the High Court. Though the work of clearing encroached lands is satisfactory, the percentage wise progress is low is several places, the DC said and warned of stern action against revenue inspectors who have not achieved progress. The DC warned of issuing a show cause notice to a revenue inspector after learning that only 40 acres was vacated out of thousands of acres of encroachment in Kushalnagar hobli. Zilla Panchayat CEO M Koorma Rao said, lands are essential to carry out development works in Grama Panchayat limits. A meet of revenue officials and PDOs has been convened in this regard. The housing schemes are not seeing expected progress, owing to dearth of sites. The PDOs should work towards providing minimum sites for basic amenities such as community toilets and crematoriums, he said. Additional Deputy Commissioner M Sathish Kumar said, the demands by various Panchayats should be placed before Grama Sabhas and should be sent to the Taluk Panchayat Executive Officers, after availing sanctions. The EOs, in turn, should submit the list of demands to Tahsildars.
