Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today quashed reports that the government would abolish the entire revenue department as part of its proposed reforms.
He asserted that the state government had decided to abolish only the VRO posts and not the entire revenue department.
He made these remarks while replying to a question raised by CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka during the debate held on the Telangana Rights in Land and Pattadar Passbooks Bill 2020 (the bill to enact the new revenue act).
Vikramarka urged the CM to continue the VRO posts. Replying to this, KCR said that the present VRO system was creating havoc in society, and that there was a strong case to abolish it completely.
He also said that the revenue department had all kinds of revenue records, and that land survey and settlement department would also continue to be there, and so no one should face any problems.
Commenting on the acquisition of assigned lands, KCR made it clear that the state government was acquiring the lands to take up public projects, and not for other reasons like the erstwhile Congress government had done.
