RTC: District admin accused of harassing seven families

Seven families at 80-Badagabettu village have charged that the district administration has harassed them in the process of providing RTC to the land which has mutation and registration.

Speaking to media persons here on Friday, social activist Yogish Shet said that District and Sessions Court has issued show-cause notice to the deputy commissioner for making the residents suffer. The court has issued orders for the confiscation of the 12 vehicles of the district administration and reimburse the amount the aggrieved people spent on getting the work done, he added.

He said that the seven families have spent nearly Rs 3 lakh to Rs 4 lakh as the expenditure. Though the aggrieved families are in the possession of the property, they cannot enjoy the rights without the revenue records. The ownership of the property is not complete if the RTC is not transferred in the respective names. The aggrieved residents approached the court on November 10, 2017 and the court announced the order on November 18. The deputy commissioner is being asked by the court to be present on January 6, 2018. The passing over the responsibility on each other, the administration at taluk and district level has meted out injustice to the families. The land was handed over to the families in 1982, he said.

Six families were given 50 cents and one family was offered 20 cents.

One of the residents alleged that they were compelled to bribe the officials, but in vain, and the problem remains unsolved.
