The district administration has so far recovered 500 acres of revenue land that had been encroached upon by vested interests and has formed a task force committee for the removal of encroachments in the City.

In a press release here, Deputy Commissioner Harsh Gupta has said a number of measures are being taken to provide facilities to general public as part of reforms in administration.

The phone-in-programme is being held on every third Thursday in a month to address the problems of general public as well as of the farmers on the spot.

People can contact the deputy commissioner or any other senior officer of any department through telephone from any corner of the district.

He said steps are initiated to remove encroachment of government land, tanks, roads and lakes. Already, around 500 acre government land has been reclaimed.

The district administration would not spare anybody who encroaches revenue land or tanks.

A programme to correct mistakes found in land records is being in progress and so far, as many as 2.75 lakh mistakes have been corrected.

The system of distribution of PDS items to all fair price shops was introduced so that they are supplied on particular days.

Gupta said steps are taken for the computerisation of all records in revenue department by classifying files and indexing them.

Already they have already indexed more than 3.08 lakh files. As many as 400 cases that were pending in the deputy commissioner’s court for the last so many years, were cleared within four months, he added.

The DC directed all officials concerned to disburse compensation for rain-affected victims immediately.

He assessed the damage to private and public property in the recent rains. The revenue officers were asked to take steps for the speedy distribution of compensation.
