Errors in RTCs to be set right by March, says Revenue minister

The State Revenue department has set a target of March 2015 to set right the erroneous Right to Tenancy Certificates (RTCs) and phodis (revenue sketches, maps, etc.) in the State, announced Revenue and district in-charge Minister V Sreenivas Prasad on Saturday.

Addressing the media after a progress review meeting of the department in Mysuru division, at the Regional Commissioner’s office here, Prasad said, “The mistakes in RTCs and phodis had not been addressed even after they were computerised 14 years ago. Taking cognisance of the plight of the land holders, who at times due to spelling errors and other minute mistakes in documents were failing to avail the benefit, it was decided to organise separate Revenue Adalats.”

Prasad said that of the total 1.61 crore RTCs in the State, 35,129 mistakes had been identified and 31,101 cases disposed of, with tahsildars rectifying the same. There are a total of 3.58 crore phodis and all surveyors have been asked to dispose of 23 phodis having mistakes per month through separate adalats.

Prasad said that to facilitate those who have built their housesillegally on government lands, it has been decided to regularise such houses under Section 94(C) of the Land Revenue Act, at the rural level and 94 (CC) at the urban level. The applications will be invited next month to regularise the houses in the dimensions of 20x30 ft and 30x40 ft.

Earlier, Prasad took stock of the progress of the department in Mysuru division comprising eight districts - Mysuru, Mandya, Chamarajanagar, Kodagu, Hassan, Udupi, Chikkamagaluru and Dakshina Kannada.
