Public interaction for quicker disposal of files

 Deputy Commissioner Richard Vincent D’Souza said public interaction meetings would be held at hobli, village, taluk and district levels for quicker disposal of files in Revenue and other departments.

Speaking at an interactive programme organised by Press Club in the city on Monday, he said the public could directly submit their complaints, if the processes are delayed.
He said the public interaction meetings are helpful in solving the problems of farmers in the district.

D’Souza said there is 1.86 lakh acres of Bane land in the district and the tax for 32,000 acres of land is yet to be fixed. If the land holders are willing to fix the tax for their land, they may approach the Revenue Department with suitable documents, he stated.

The DC said there are legal hurdles for the correction of RTCs and efforts are being made to solve the problem.

D’Souza clarified that the district administration does not encourage middlemen.
He said efforts are also being made to clear encroachments of government land. The land would be distributed among landless people, he added.

The DC said many steps have been taken under Forest Rights Act. The process of distributing land in rural areas is being delayed as some of the houses are on Paisari land, he stated.

The misappropriation in the collection of the rent of stalls in City Municipal Council (CMC) is being investigated, he said.

The DC said measures would be taken to provide parking facility in the city. The movement of heavy vehicles, including timber transportation vehicles, has been banned. The vehicles violating rules would be seized, he added.

He requested people not to pay heed to rumours and cooperate with the district administration in maintaining peace and order.

Additional Deputy Commissioner M Satish Kumar, Press Club President Keshav Kamat and General Secretary B C Dinesh were present.
