The CM held a meeting with the Ministers and Collectors at Pragathi Bhavan today. Government Advisors, secretaries of the departments and heads of the departments participated in the meeting.

Chief Minister Sri K. Chandrashekar Rao said that before the formation of Telangana State, the maintenance of revenue records was in chaos and it often leads to clashes and litigations. He said that the Telangana government had made several attempts to put an end to the frequent litigation arising out of improper records and to clearly state who is the owner of every bit of land. The comprehensive purification of land records, issue of new passbooks, the new Revenue Act and other reforms undertaken by the government are clear on the ownership rights. The CM has expressed satisfaction that the Dharani Portal launched to make sales and purchases; maintenance of records in a transparent manner was successful cent percent. The CM has instructed the officials to make more flexibility in the sale and purchase of agricultural lands; modification should be done to the Dharani Portal within one week’s time. The CM asked the District Collectors to personally take initiative and solve all issues pertaining to the Revenue Department. He asked the officials to invite fresh applications for the pending mutations and the mutations should be done within a week.

“Make the Dharani Portal more user-friendly. For this immediately make the necessary modifications. Create a facility on Dharani Portal for the NRIs to register based on their Passport Number. Modify Dharani in such a way that companies and societies should also be able to get passbooks for the lands that they purchase. Earlier, the details of those who did not give their Aadhar numbers were not uploaded in Dharani. Give them one more chance and register their Aadhar number and issue Passbooks. The District Collectors should solve all the disputes with regard to Land Transfer regulation in the agency areas within a month. Create a facility on Dharani for those who booked the slot to cancel or reschedule their slots. The list of prohibited lands should be updated regularly. Make changes as per the Court verdicts. Put the land collected by the government from farmers under the Prohibited List. Solve all the issues under Part B except those involved in legal litigation. The district collectors should examine the application came for the regularisation of Sada Bainamas and solve them. Allow the facility to register GPA, SPA and AGPA through the Dharani Portal. The cases pending before the revenue court’s jurisdiction should be cleared quickly by the District level Tribunals to be formed under the leadership of district collectors. If the Collectors delegate revenue-related issues to the lower rung officials and wash off their hands, things will not work. Hence the Collectors should personally examine all the matters and take decisions accordingly,” the CM said.

“Reopen Classes from 9th standard upwards in all the private and government educational institutions from Feb 1. Classes should be held for the students of 10th, Intermediate, Degree, and other professional courses. Meanwhile, keep ready hostels, residential schools, and all educational institutions and ensure that the toilets are clean. The Collectors should take the necessary measures to keep the educational institutions clean and hygienic. Since the educational institutions are closed for many days, clean the entire premises; ensure that the food grains, essential commodities are not rotten. By Jan 25, keep the educational institutions ready to conduct the classes. Ministers should visit SC, ST, BC Hostels and see to that they are fit for the students to stay,” the CM said.

“Palle Pragathi Programme is going on well. The Villages in Telangana State are becoming role models to others in the country. Every village in Telangana State have tractors, Dump Yards, Plant Nurseries, Village Natural forests, safe and pure drinking water to every household through pipes under Mission Bhagiratha programme. Such programme are no where in any other state or in the country. This is a feather on Telangana State’s cap,” the CM said.

“At the formation of Telangana State, only 84 Gram Panchayats have own tractors. But now of the 12,765 Gram Panchayats, 12, 681 villages have their own tankers, tractors with trolleys. This alone explains from where the villages have developed to what extent. In the past, there was destruction of forests and there was no attempt to grow them. But now there is greenery in the villages. The Telangana villages have become role model in clean and green environment. Every village has a plant nursery now. There are 12, 755 Plant nurseries all over the State. The planting and protection of trees have been done with utmost responsibility. Of the saplings planted 91 percent survived in the rural areas. In order to have one public garden in every village natural forest programme was launched as part of Palle Pragathi. The government has decided to create 19,470 Village Natural forests in all the habitations in the State. Land is identified at 19,027 places and saplings were planted at 15, 646 places. Works are going on the fast track at other places. Earlier there was no place for farmers to sit and deliberate. The government took a special interests and constructing one Rythu Vedika at every cluster. Of the 2,601 Farmers Daises being constructed, Vedikas are completed at 2580 places. Dump Yards construction is going on at 12, 736 places and 91 percent of the works are completed. At 9023 Dumping Yards, Compost is being made. In the past people who owned no land used to face problems, as there were no crematoria or burial grounds. To put an end to such a suffering, the state government has decided to have one Vaikunta Dham at every village. Vaikunta Dhams are being constructed at 12742 villages. The government has also decided to create ‘Drying Floors’ for the farmers to dry and thresh their produce. Drying Floors are being created at 93,875 places in the State in the first phase. Earlier Gram Panchayats never use to pay their electricity bills on time leading major dues to the electricity organisations. With the initiatives taken by the government, now Gram Panchayats are paying their electricity bills on time. The government is releasing every month Rs 308 Crore to the Gram Panchayats without fail. This is leading to gram panchayats taking up the developmental works without any hindrance. There is no other state in the country except Telangana state, which has villages with greenery, cleanliness, and transparent governance. Due to increase in cleanliness there are no cases of Dengue in the village this time,” the CM observed.

“A majority of people live in the villages in Telangana State. Officials and public representatives should realise that they should work with village as the action ground and not to be unrealistic. One should aim to develop the village in a big way. Additional Collector and DPO should examine the Palle Pragathi programme whenever they visit the village without fail. Ministers and MLAs should monitor the Palle Pragathi works whenever they visit the villages. Solve if there are any problems. Mandal Panchayat Officers should regularly visit the villages. Since every village has a plant nursery, replace the dying plants. Every household should get six plants,” the CM instructed.
