Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today said that his government had decided to enact the new revenue act to put an end to the corruption in the revenue department of the state.
He made these remarks after introducing the Telangana Rights in Land and Pattadar Pass Books Bill, 2020.
Speaking on the occasion, he termed the bill as a historic development in the history of the state.
He said that he was very happy to introduce the bill, which he claimed would help the farmers and the ordinary people of the state get rid of the vexing problems associated with land registration.
He said that the rulers of the erstwhile united state had not done enough to reform the revenue laws although they made attempts to do so, and that the officials of the revenue department were even attacked due to the defects in the revenue laws.
He claimed that the proposed new law would address all the problems faced by the people of the state including its farmers, in land registration.
He said that the tahsildars would act as joint registrars hereon, and that they would register all the agricultural lands. The non-agricultural lands including the Grama Kamtam properties would be registered by the sub-registrars of the state, he said.
He added that the people of the state could access the details of their properties online on the Dharani website, and said that all the sale transactions of properties would be done online hereon, and that the registration and the mutation of the properties would be completed in one go once the details were registered online.
