New survey system to be introduced

Speaking to reporters, Revenue Minister Karunakara Reddy said that a new instrument called the station survey will be provided to officials at taluk level.

Under the system, land surveys can be done faster, and results will be accurate. The cost of this instrument is Rs 5 lakh, he added.

He was speaking after holding a meeting with all Divisional Commissioners, Deputy Commissioners and top officials of the department.

The Minister said he has directed Village Accountants to visit villages at least three days a week. They also need to display a board in front of the office, with information as to when they will be available, he added.

A remote tracking monitoring system will be introduced to trace movement of officials, including Village Accounts, Revenue Inspectors and Tahsildars. The system has been already implemented in Mandya district on a pilot basis, Karunakara Reddy said.

Burial grounds

The department has identified 8,448 villages where burial grounds are not available. Deputy Commissioners have been identified to either use Government land (if available) or take steps to acquire private land for a burial ground.
Half an acre of land will be set aside as a burial ground for every 1,000 people, the minister said.
