Special Teams Set Up To Identify Land Grabbers

The intruded records gained by the land grabbers of our city and other parts of the district have proliferated into the biggest land scam in Andhra Pradesh. The district administration has decided to take up a survey drive, and have the target set up for six months to get all the records in order.

District Collector Pravin Kumar and Joint Collector G Srijana have accepted that some of the people might have tampered with the records of the Madhurwada and Kommadi areas of Vizag city in order to benefit the grabbers and some records are already missing.

Six special teams have been formed in Vizag to conduct the survey. The survey has already started in Kommadi and would be completed by next week; followed by the Madhurwada survey the week after. The teams have already collected data and started tallying it against the records at the District Collector’s office and the records at the concern tahsildar’s office, the joint collector stated.

It’s a huge provocation for the revenue teams  to ascertain the details, such as the link of the documents for large acres of land from 1956 for SFA (SETTLEMENT FAIR ADANGAL) and from 1920 FOR RSR (RESURVEY SETTLEMENT REGISTER). The Officers told that if they are able to establish the link between documents, then they can easily ascertain the extent of government land, the extent of land allotted to various departments, and the extent of it grabbed by others.

The Joint Collector stated that drones would be used for the survey, that could obtain all the records. Later, they would carry out geo- fencing of all the government land, which would be possible by obtaining the geo coordinates of the land.
