Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao discussed the new reforms being contemplated in the proposed Revenue Act to offer a corrupt-free and transparent government beneficial to people and farmers of the state.
The CM instructed Collectors to prepare an action plan for revival of the forests all over the State and get going at the earliest. CM personally demonstrated to the Collectors on Wednesday the forest revival programme being implemented at Singayapalli, Nentur and Komatibanda falling in his constituency limits. He chaired a key session at Komatibanda to discuss on the three Acts -- Municipal, Panchayat Raj and the proposed new Revenue Act.
The CM explained to them the need to overhaul the existing Revenue Act to make it more effective. KCR is understood to have briefed them about the task given earlier to Nalsar, Hyderabad, to go through Revenue Laws comprehensively. In all, Nalsar identified there are 150 laws in Revenue alone, some of which were outdated and needed to be modified, he stressed.
One such law is RoR (Record of Rights) that comes into the picture in the mutation process and it needs to be revisited again, Rao said. The CM also discussed at length about powers vested with the Tahasildars and whether some of them like Pattadar passbooks distribution could be transferred to RDO or JC.
The Chief Minister also sought opinions and inputs of Collectors and senior officials on the new Revenue Act. He also stressed on effective implementation of the new Panchayat Raj and Municipal Acts for ensuring progress and development of villages and towns in a big way.
Further, the CM wanted the Collectors to take inspiration from forest revival implemented in Gajwel and implement the model in their respective districts to boost the green cover in a big way.
If the social forestry helps to reduce temperatures in the residential areas, forest development would bring in a change in the atmosphere and help bring in more rains and helping the cause of biodiversity, the CM felt.
