'Houses on govt land to be regularised'

The regularisation process of houses built on government lands will be initiated soon after the application process is completed under 94 C, said District In-charge Minister B Ramanath Rai. “Around 59,000 applications have been received under 94 C and 94 CC in Dakshina Kannada district,” he added.

He was speaking after inaugurating the district-level Janamana programme at Town Hall in Mangaluru on Tuesday. He said that a total of 10,245 applications have been sanctioned and 9,911 title deeds have been distributed. In Urban area, 12,367 applications have been released and steps are taken to clear the same. Rai said there are plans to relax the land limit from five cents to nine cents. Podi free campaign is being effectively implemented in the villages of the district. Also, Kandaya Adalat and Pinchani Adalats are held to dispose the files. Janamana programme will be conducted in hobli levels in the days to come, Rai said.

Stating that 95% of the assurances made in the election manifesto of the Congress have been fulfilled, he said the state government has been striving to provide the life of dignity to all, especially to the economically backward communities. The loans availed by the people from Devraj Urs Corporation, Dr B R Ambedkar Corporation and Minority Corporation towards housing schemes have been waived, he said.

During the interaction, the District In-charge Minister said that Rs three crore and 29 lakh has been allocated towards Ksheera Bhagya and Rs 60 lakh has been allocated towards Vidyarthi Siri for the current year. As much as Rs 30 crore and two lakh subsidy is provided to the Food and Civil Supplies department in the district for the year 2015-16. The minister said Rs 8,48,000 is been distributed during the year under Manaswini scheme. A total of 27 transgenders have availed benefits of Maitri scheme, where they get a monthly pension of Rs 500 while Rs 5 crore and 45 lakh has been provided under Bidayi-Shadibhagya scheme during the current year, he explained.

Transgenders urged the government to provide shelter for them, under Maitri scheme, as people hesitate to give homes to them on rent. The lodges charge them more rent. There are also problems caused by transgenders who have been migrating to the district from other places. 

Interacting with the beneficiaries of Matsyashraya scheme, the minister said there are technical problems to provide RTCs to the fishermen who have built houses close to the seas. There is a proposal before the Central government to relax the CRZ limits, as in Kerala and Goa.
