However, as part of the review of the scheme, the officials briefed the CM on the progress and objectives of the comprehensive land survey work. The officials told survey was completed in 51 villages undertaken under the pilot project and said that it is expected to be completed in another 650 villages by December 2021.

Officials said 30,679 farms have already been surveyed in 51 villages as part of the pilot project and explained to the Chief Minister that after the completion of the survey, the passbook with full details and maps would be provided to the farmers.
Speaking on the occasion, the CM said that when there is a sale of land, it should be updated in the records of the seller and the records of the purchaser in relation to the passbook. The CM suggested setting up a special team on this and formulating appropriate policies and that SOPs should be developed for registration and mutation processes based on their recommendations. The CM directed that the process should be completed within the village secretariats.
CM YS Jagan further directed that adequate technical equipment be provided to complete the land survey. It is suggested that adequate drones be provided for this purpose.

It was suggested that all the procedures like updating of land records, registration, etc. should be done in a highly transparent manner. "There should be no room for corruption because of the reforms we are bringing in; it should be for the benefit of farmers and landowners," he said. The CM suggested that effective guidelines be prepared for this.
CM Jagan directed the authorities to take appropriate action instead of repeating the mistakes that took place in the records regarding the issue of prohibited lands during the last government tenure.
