Collector reviews land acquisition
District Collector Vakati Karuna directed the officials to complete land acquisition of different irrigation projects in the district at the earliest. She held review meeting with revenue officials on Tuesday. The Collector told officials to study miss match (where land owner names differ from one record to another) regarding lands separately to avoid delay in acquisition process. The Collector made these observations when joint collector brought it to her notice about the hurdles in acquiring miss match lands.
The Collector further said that it is important to create confidence in the farmers on official machinery and added tahasildars can alter the names with mutual consent of the farmers concerned. Joint Collector Prashanth Jeevan observed irrigation and revenue departments should work together to speed up the land acquisition. Special deputy collectors, RDOs and others officials attended.
