The land survey is being conducted in 51 villages as pilot project and will be done in another 650 villages by December and the comprehensive land survey will be completed by 2023. He said records will be updated once survey is completed and new passbooks will be issued to the owners.

He instructed the officials to prepare a protocol to register issues and solve problems and check if they are being followed or not. He said inspections revealed that 80 percent of secretariats employees are performing their duties well and directed the officials to support remaining 20 per cent to improve their performance.
