Jammu- Amid a furore over the ongoing drive to retrieve state and Kahcharie land in the UT, Sinha reassured that the interests of common citizens will be protected and they will not be impacted by the anti-encroachment drive.
“People are at the centre of governance. Legal action is being taken against influential people who had illegally encroached upon the government,” he said.
“For decades, the development and aspirations of common masses were held hostage by exploitative and anti-developmental land laws. Over the last two years, land owners have been empowered through a series of reforms,” he added.
The LG also informed that his administration has been successful to a great extent in curbing corruption by issuing land passbooks in three languages.
So far, 28 lakh such passbooks have been distributed, revenue records are being demystified for eliminating the possibility of manipulation. Through Aapki Zameen, Aapki Nigrani, land records have been made readily available to citizens, and the online revenue service delivery is preventing human intervention and mischief,” the LG said.
“Similarly, the new land-use laws have ensured that people get a reasonable and fair price for their land and the interest of famers are protected,” he added.
