He was addressing an ex-servicemen adalat at Kotehale Vidhana Sabhangana here on Saturday. The DC verified the files pending in the police department and directed the officials to expedite the process to solve the cases. He expressed concern over the unnecessary delay in disposing files related ex-servicemen in the district.
He said that there are 34 files pending in Madikeri taluk, 55 in Somwarpet taluk and 20 files in Virajpet. If the report on 109 cases were submitted before November 22, then it will be sent to the government for approval, he added.
Ex-servicemen can present their problems and find solution in the monthly meeting of revenue officials. Similarly, problems can also be solved through Akrama-Sakrama Samitis, the DC said. Officials of all departments should work jointly to find solutions to the problems of ex-servicemen, he added. Superintendent of Police Manjunath K Annigeri said that grievances of ex-servicemen including delay in the distribution of RTCs, land encroachments and other harassments will be verified and action will be taken soon in a phased manner.
Kodagu District Ex-servicemen Association President Major General B A Kariappa and Secretary Col Ganapathi brought to the notice of the DC the proposal of construction of memorial structure for General Thimmaiah. The DC said that the RTO Office is functioning in the house of General Thimmaiah. The house will be made a memorial of General Thimmaiah once the RTO Office was shifted from there. Survey will be conducted to find place for war memorial in the district, he said adding that action will be taken to materialise the proposals.
