20L-25L possession certificates for houses on govt land by March

Village accountants, PDOs to conduct joint survey with revenue inspectors

The state government will undertake a programme to regularise houses built on revenue land in rural and urban areas on a mission mode over the next two months.

Revenue Minister Kagodu Thimmappa told reporters here on Wednesday that the government proposed to issue 20 lakh to 25 lakh possession certificates by March next year under the regularisation scheme.

He said a circular has been issued on Wednesday that makes it mandatory for all village accountants and panchayat development officers to conduct a joint survey along with the juridicational revenue inspectors to identify houses built on government land.

"As on date, we have received around six lakh applications under the regularisation scheme, but our estimate is that the number of houses on government land is 20 lakh to 25 lakh. We are keen on regularising all of them and issuing possession certificates before the model code of conduct comes into place for next year's Assembly polls," Thimmappa said.

The minister said he will tour all districts to monitor the drive from December 15. The last date for the regularisation scheme was recently extended to February 2018. The Karnataka Land Revenue (Third Amendment) Bill, 2017, which was passed during the winter session of legislature also proposed to regularise houses constructed on government land in unrecorded habitations like Lambani tanda, Gollarahatti, Vaddarahatti, Kurubarahatti, Nayakarahatti, Majare grama, Hadi, Doddi, Palya among others.
