Government buildings have no land records

The district administration has decided to start a drive to carry out survey of the government land and the buildings, to prepare a map and to provide the RTC in the name of the department heads on priority basis.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, Assistant Commissioner Dr M R Ravi said all the department heads have been directed to give a proposal to the respective taluk Tahsildars to carry out the survey work to identify the extent of the government land.

Several schools, primary health centres, police stations, college buildings, agriculture department and horticulture department do not have documents for their building and the land owned by the departments concerned. Hence the departments are not in a position to undertake development works through grants from the government. “Many school, hospital and police station property have been donated by the donor in the district. Though the donors have given land records, the documents related to the land has not been transferred to the department concerned. In this background, those departments which do not have land records, such land will be surveyed and the RTC will be issued in the name of the respective department head. The concerned department heads should submit the documents pertaining to the donation of land, to the Tahsildar to carry out the survey work,” AC Dr M R Ravi said.

There are several departments in Madikeri which do not have proper land records and do not have RTC. The department wakes up only when their land gets encroached. “As the department heads failed to take any initiative to get the land records, even the Revenue department did not bother much. Without the proposals from the department concerned, Tahsildar also could not do anything. Hence, the government land remained neglected for years. The survey is aimed at protecting the government land and the building,” Dr Ravi said.
