Tumakuru: MLA Dr. G. Parameshwara said that the land will not be allotted to the natives of Bengaluru who have illegally encroached on the Government land at Akkajihalli Village in Holavanahalli Hobli of the taluk and should be ready to give it to the farmers of the Taluk.
He was speaking after distributing title deeds, pahani, title deeds documents and monthly pension to the farmers cultivating Bagar Hukum land in Koratagere Taluk by the Taluk Revenue Department at Maruthi Kalyana Mantapa in the Town of the District. He said that this process started during the time of Devaraj Urs and lakhs of farmers are taking advantage of it.
“In Koratagere Taluk, 121 title deeds, 30 cultivation certificates and 162 pension monthly certificates are being distributed. The work of distributing title deeds along with cultivation to the farmers is being done in a novel way in Koratagere Taluk of the state so that the cultivators do not have to go to the Revenue Department for title deeds. The work was done by the Bagar Hukum Committee, Tahasildar and Revenue Officials under my chairmanship very neatly, but the farmers are not allowed to alienate the land allotted to them for 25 years, he noted.
“Hundreds of acres of land in Akkajihalli Village of Holavanahalli Hobli in the Taluk have been illegally fenced by people from Bengaluru by forging documents. They have put a lot of pressure on me and the officials to issue them a cultivation certificate and the authorities to do so. But there is no question of succumbing to them, he said and asserted “For any reason, we will not give cultivable land to people from Bengaluru,” he said.
“In addition to giving land to the farmers, the support price for the crops grown and the Government agencies who bought their grains will not benefit the farmers if they are paid quickly. Otherwise no one will come forward to do farming,” he said.
