Amaravati: Twenty-five lakh beneficiaries would be given house sites with registered documents by next Ugadi, said in-charge chief secretary in-charge and chief commissioner of land administration (CCLA) Nirab Kumar Prasad.
Addressing district joint collectors, RDOs and tahsildars through video conference from the Secretariat here on Friday, the in-charge chief secretary instructed the district officials to make necessary arrangements to identify the government land and the beneficiaries village-wise to enable the government to distribute house sites by Ugadi.
The house sites would be handed over physically to the beneficiaries, he said.
Stating that so far 22 lakh beneficiaries were identified, he directed the officials to complete the process as early as possible.
He also told them to identify the under-litigation government lands and submit the affidavits in the courts to take over the land. The government has already issued instructions to regularise the encroached lands, he recalled and instructed the officials to take over the government land under various departments and government agencies.
In case the government land is not available, private land could be acquired but only after taking care not to acquire land where two crops are raised. Revenue department secretary Usha Rani said that as part of the recognising government land, Bhudan lands and lands under social welfare department could also be considered.
Special commissioner of revenue department M Harinarayana said that so far 23,180 acre of land was identified for house sites all over the state. He instructed the joint collectors to identify the rest of the land necessary for house sites. He said that 10,000 surveyors are available in village secretariats and their services could be utilised for peg marking, and dividing into plots.
