The digital survey of agriculture lands with geographical coordinates will be taken up in the State from June 11. A decision to this effect was taken by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao during a meeting with agencies involved in digital land survey, on Wednesday. The survey will be taken up on a pilot basis in 27 villages three in Gajwel and the remaining in 24 different districts.
The CM instructed Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar to select 27 villages all over the State and of which, three villages should be from Gajwel Assembly Constituency. The rest 24 should be from the 24 districts in the State. He held a review meeting on Wednesday at Pragathi Bhavan on digital survey issue with representatives from the survey agencies.
The pilot survey would be done in the villages where there are no land disputes. Later, in the villages where there are government lands and forest department lands. In other words, the survey should be conducted in a mixed bunch of villages where there are no disputes and where there are disputes and get the field level experience on the matter.
The Chief Minister said in the countries where land disputes are settled, their GDP went up by 3 to 4 per cent. He said that initially, the pilot survey should be done in the villages where there were no land disputes. Later in the villages where there are govt lands and forest department lands. The survey should be conducted in a mixed bunch of villages where there are no disputes and where there are disputes and get the field level experience on the matter. After this, the Chief Minister wanted total guidelines prepared for the total survey in the state.
The Chief Minister discussed with the agencies the guidelines for the survey as well as their action plan for its successful execution. He suggested that state-of-the-art technology be utilised to ensure that there are no disputes over even an inch of land in the State. The onus of completing the survey successfully would be on the survey agencies, and any laxity on their part would attract stringent legal action, he said.
