Form 9 and 11 problem will be solved soon: Legislator

Legislator Pramodh Madhwaraj said Rural Development and Panchayat Raj Minister H K Patil has assured him of setting right the problems involved in the process of land conversion in gram panchayats under Forms 9 and 11 at the earliest.

Form 9 is a document issued by gram panchayat for non-agricultural properties in its jurisdiction as per Karnataka Panchayat Raj Act and contains the assessment list of building and land liable to taxation while Form-11 is a document issued by grama panchayat for non-agricultural properties in its jurisdiction. Form 11 register is also called as Register of Demand, Collection and Balance of land and building.

Speaking to mediapersons, Madhwaraj said attempts are being made to find a permanent solution to Forms 9 and 11. However, the relaxation recommended would also cover six districts --- Shivamogga, Kodagu, Dakshina Kannada, Udupi, Uttara Kannada and Chikkmagaluru. The problems created by Forms 9 and 11 have led to misconceptions and there has been a delay in disposing of files related to land and land conversions, he stated.

 He said the letter, carrying the recommendations which is being forwarded to the minister, comprises demand on early disposal of the files based on first-come, first-served basis. 

The files should be disposed of within 15 days. Integration of the Bhoomi and Kaveri software should also be done, he demanded. The MLA said that no objection certificates (NOCs) are issued for the conversion land against the law in the district. The problem needs to be set right, he state and added that an appeal has been made to exempt the land which is inherited by the landholder through gift or through will from Forms 9 and 11. 

He said the entries accounts in gram panchayats are irregular and demanded that accounts should be updated frequently. The minister will act at the earliest by taking up the matter with the department, he said. 

The report submitted comprises result following deliberations with the zilla panchayat chief executive officers, taluk panchayat executive officers, district registrars, tahsildars, PDOs and others. The land tax should be revised as the tax is Rs 100 per square metre under the Panchayat Raj Act, he said.

The MLA said five villages have been selected in every Legislative Assembly constituency in the first of Phodi-free campaign in the State.  Another five villages will be taken up in the second phase of the campaign in a similar manner, he added. 

“If the process continues at a similar pace, the campaign would be successful in the next 20 years. Licence surveyors would be appointed and paid to take up the campaign,” he said.
