Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has instructed Deputy Commissioners to take steps to issue regular sanction letters to Bagarhukum cultivators using a large number of surveyors, said Law Minister J. C. Madhuswamy said.
Speaking to mediapersons here after a meeting of Deputy Commissioners at Vidhana Soudha, he said that he has been asked to dispose of several applications such as account transfers at the earliest and take appropriate steps to pave the way for farmers’ lands.
“Many cases of farmers are still pending in the Revenue Court. All those cases have been suggested to be disposed of at the earliest. ADCs, Tahsildars and Revenue Department officials have also been asked to dispose of cases at the earliest. He said he has been asked to pay compensation even if the soil is washed away in the field due to rain damage.
Minister said, “The crop insurance should reach the farmers in the right way. The Deputy Commissioners have been asked to talk to senior officials of the banks to ensure that farmers get easy loans from banks.”
He said instructions have been issued to the Deputy Commissioners to reject the applications of those who have applied for the construction of houses but have not yet come forward to construct houses and facilitate the builders urgently. In all 3,047 new Revenue villages have been identified, out of which title deeds have also been issued in 954 Revenue villages.
