Bhopal:March 29, (Yasha Sharma)State government has decided to extend Special Revenue Campaign till June 30, 2008. Earlier, the last date for this campaign was June 25, undertaken for implementing programmes and schemes under Revenue Department.
Meanwhile, the state government has issued instructions to all the district collectors and divisional commissioners to ensure action on 11 points. During the campaign, camps would be organised in every district for redressal of cases related to controversial mutation, partition and other cases. Besides, information about controversial mutation, partition and demarcation would also be provided at the camps.
During the campaign, cases related to land allotment under MoUs signed for government and other schemes would also be prepared. Such cases would be redressed after their enlistment. During the last Revenue Campaign, verification of the allotted lands was done. In some districts, verification of the actual possession is yet to be done and such cases would be redressed during the ongoing campaign. Lands for allotment to potters would be identified. Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan had announced at the Shilpi Panchayat that land would be allotted to potters in every village. Similarly, action would also be ensured to comply the instructions to reserve land for Gaushala in every Gram Panchayat. The action taken report about Tarmim land would also be reviewed during the campaign. Review of land acquisition cases is also proposed. Some thoroughfares are registered in land records but they have disappeared due to encroachment. Verification of such pathways would also be done. During the campaign, encroachments made on the national highways would also be removed. Change in charge of Patwaris in the urban areas is also proposed.
State government has also issued instructions to revenue officers to ensure time-bound achievement of targets. Every district collector would make available fortnightly progress report of the campaign to Commissioner Land Records and Bandobust and Principal Secretary Revenue while the consolidated progress report would have to be made available within one week after conclusion of the campaign. Review would be undertaken twice a month by Sub-Divisional Officer, once a month by the collector while the spot review would be undertaken by the divisional commissioner. All the revenue officers would imperatively monitor the progress on the spot during their tours and would issue necessary guidelines to field officers. The district collectors have been asked to propagate this special campaign on a wide scale so that general people can avail of its benefits.
