CM KCR chairs meeting on farmers' issue

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao chaired a meeting with officials on farmers' issue. During the meeting the CM instructed the officials concerned to make sure that farmers who are assigned lands should be given Pattadar Passbooks. He has also instructed to identify lands under the possession of the beneficiaries and to give clarity on the ownership rights. He also asked them to make passbooks in the name of the owners. He said, "Every entry in the Passbooks should be scrutinized thoroughly and there shall not be any mistake or error what so ever it may be in the entries. While doing so, there should not be any undue haste. If a farmer having land in the village is also owner of non-agriculture land, those details also should be made as an entry into the Passbooks and an additional column should be provided for this purpose."The Minister also emphasised on linking Aadhar card with the passbooks. "It is decided to link Aadhar Card to maintain land records properly. But some people in Medchel and Rangareddy and some other districts have not linked their Aadhar Cards with the records. Such people should give their Aadhar details to the officials at the earliest. Lands of those who have not liked their Adhar will have to be treated as Benami lands."He said. Meanwhile, the CM instructed drinking water to all the villages to be supplied by March 31. While laying the pipelines to the villages, parallelly internal pipe network in the villages should also be taken up. MLAs should take interest and initiative in getting the internal drinking water pipelines completed and taps are fixed in every house. The CM held a review meeting at Pragati Bhavan on supplying drinking water to all the villages inside ORR by March end under Mission Bhagiratha.
