Speaking to Koraga leaders and office-bearers of NGOs at Deputy Commissioner’s office on the lines of ownership rights to Koragas over the lands they have been living on, he said there are 857 Koraga families in the district, of which 501 families own land while 209 families are cultivating the government land and 24 families are living in forest areas. As many as 122 families are residing on other land.

“Title deeds have been issued to 501 families. Remaining 356 families are yet to receive the title deeds,” said the DC setting a deadline of one month to the Tahsildar to complete the process of title deeds.

Those residing on government land, yet to receive the title deeds should submit applications at the Taluk officials for title deeds. After the verification of the application, letter will be submitted to the government for approval.

The DC said 82.15 acre land has been sanctioned to 73 Koraga families in the district, which include 27 families in Bantwal (29.92 acre), one family in Sullia (.70 acre), 19 families in Mangalore (28.27 acre), 21 families in Belthangady (16.93 acre) and five families in Puttur(6.33 acre).

Koraga girls who are working as health motivators were given honorarium on the occasion.
The DC also distributed cheques to those families who own land and want to build houses through the government aid.
