Mahbubnagar: The correction of land records, which were going on at snail’s pace, have now picked up pace in Mahbubnagar with officials completing 92 per cent of works. According to District Collector Ronald Rose, till now 92 per cent of land purification works have been completed in the district.
However, in some mandals like Makthal, Maddur and Balanagar works are lagging behind due to some legal hurdles. While inspecting the works in Makthal mandal on Wednesday, the Collector expressed his displeasure over the way the mandal revenue officials were taking up the survey works in the villages.
He said there was a lot of difference being observed in the official records and the survey reports submitted by the officials. “We have observed many discrepancies and errors in the land survey conducted by the mandal revenue officials. We have directed them to correct all the errors and expedite the land survey works so as to complete the works by December end,” said the Collector.
At present, only 8 per cent of works are left pending. Major delay of pending works is because of legal issues and unresolved land disputes. However, the Collector expressed optimism and said the administration would complete all the survey works and correction of land records by December end and get ready to distribute new land passbooks by January 2018 as targeted by the State government.
