Revenue minister promises to solve complications in Forms 9 and 11

Revenue Minister Kagodu Thimmappa assured that complications in forms 9 and 11 bothering the coastal districts would be sorted out by September end.

Speaking to mediapersons after chairing the review meet of the Revenue department in the district, the minister said he has already completed review meetings in 26 districts including Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts. He said the elected representatives were called and discussions were held to sort out the problems involved in forms 9 and 11, which are not under revenue land.

He said the Revenue department in the district is discharging the duties effectively, however, there are some loopholes which should be attended immediately.

Emphasising over the pending applications under form 50 and 53, the minister said he has instructed the officials to attend the applications immediately as the state government is committed to ensure and to legalise the houses to all who are illegally dwelling in the government land since many years.

There are issues like forest area and the cultivated farm land and hence, the applications are kept pending. Besides, the state government has decided to take up one time operation, where the people dwelling in the Gomala land would be offered the ownerships.

However, the land should be small, the minister said. Elaborating over the Podi Muktha drive taken up in the state, the minister said the campaign has been taken up in the district successfully, but there requires a little extra push. The state government has decided to include all types of land under Podi Muktha Abhiyan. This also includes Kumki and ‘Bagair Hukum’ land which is considered as privileged land.

He added that the government has also instructed the PDOs and village accountants of each gram panchayats to look into the blue print of  the survey numbers in the village and work on the possibilities of offering houses to the people who have not applied under 94 C.
He said tahsildars have also been instructed to take special attention and ensure that the homeless needy will be offered site, he said. The last date to apply under 94C is October 27. The last date for applying under 94CC was August 27, however, the last date has been extended for another two months, that is, till October 27, he informed.  He said the problems under forest land would be sorted out by December end and the deemed forest issue would also have a concrete conclusion. The ST beneficiaries were asked to offer 13 witnesses to prove their stay in the land since many years. The state government has revived the condition and one witness is sufficient as per the new order.

He said if an attempt is made to transfer the ownership of Kumki land once legalised, the government would take back the land ownership, he concluded.
