Unguturu: Minister for Tourism, Sports, Cultural and Youth Affairs Vatti Vasanth Kumar said that the revenue meets being held in the State were useful in resolving the long-standing land disputes. Addressing a revenue meet at Bommidi village of Unguturu mandal in West Godavari district on Friday, Vasantha Kumar said that the revenue meets were being held from March 12 to April 10 all over the State so that the people need not go around various government offices to get their problems resolved. Instead, their problems are resolved at one place in their presence, he said. The Minister told the people to utilise the opportunity and derive maximum benefit from the revenue meets. He said the revenue meets held last year were found beneficial to the poor in resolving their long-pending problems. He said problems like non-allotment of land to the genuine beneficiaries though they got the necessary pattas, correcting the discrepancies found in the pattas, making alterations in the pattas, and any other problem related to lands could be solved at the meets. Loan eligibility cards to tenant farmers Vasanth Kumar said that the state government would come to the rescue of tenant farmers by issuing loan eligibility cards so that they could get loans from banks. Allaying the fears of landlords, he said that the government would not infringe on their rights and they would have the ultimate rights over their lands. Loans would be provided only to the tenant farmers who were cultivating the lands, the minister added. He said that the State government had taken measures to issue eligibility cards to more than 2.5 lakh farmers in the district and to sanction them loans. Mee Seva centres The Minister said that the State government had started the Mee Seva services to the people to provide them efficient, accountable and transparent services. He said people can avail all the services at Mee Seva centres at a time. Nearly 70 types of important services are being provided at these centres in the district, he said. The Minister was surprised to see hundreds of people in the village applying for fresh ration cards. He enquired from the officials as to why ration cards were not issued to them earlier. He directed the officials to issue ration cards immediately. Later, the Minister distributed house site pattas to several women. The District Water Management Association (DWAMA) Project Director N Ramachandra Reddy, Deputy Project Officer Nagaraju Varma, Housing Board Project Director Srinivas, APCO director D Satyanarayana, DCCB Director M Gopalakrishna, Deputy DEO Suryanarayana, MPDO Ramu and others were present on the occasion. Earlier, the Minister inaugurated a cement concrete road constructed at a cost of Rs 30 lakh at Badampudi village in Unguturu mandal.
