Reclaim encroached land: DC

Reclaim encroached land: DC

Speaking at a meeting of Government Land Protection Task Force, he urged the Tahsildars to submit a report on the encroached government land, gomala and lakes. The DC directed the tahsilars to reclaim the encroached land at the earliest.

“The government departments should identify their own land. With the help of revenue and police departments, the encroached land can be reclaimed,” he added.

It is the responsibility of the urban local bodies to dispose solid waste in a scientific manner. Waste disposal is a challenging task at Siddapura, Suntikoppa and other neighbouring areas, he added.

Zilla Panchayat CEO N Krishnappa said that no land was available for the disposal of waste at Siddapura. Hence, the panchayat will look into the alternative ways to dispose the waste.

Additional DC K M Chandre Gowda said strict measures should be taken to protect the government land. All the measures should be taken to reclaim the government land. If the government land was encroached in the city, then the CMC should take action to reclaim it, he added.

Assistant Commissioner Dr M R Ravi said the taluk-level committee should convene a meeting and submit the report at the earliest. Taluk Panchayat EOs should work in coordination with the Tahsildars.

Deputy Conservator of Forest Anand called upon the revenue department officials to help in reclaiming the encroached land. Though hundreds of acre land is in the hands of the forest department, the RTC is yet to be issued in its name. More emphasis will be given to reclaim the encroached land belonging to reserve forest and Devarakadu, he added.
