CM Yogi expresses displeasure over negligence in revenue-related matters

Saturday, 15 June 2024 | PNS | Lucknow

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has expressed strong displeasure over instances of negligence in revenue-related matters, leading him to promptly order actions against the negligent officers. He also instructed that a detailed report be submitted to his office within two weeks.

Recently, the chief minister held a high-level meeting with officers from diverse departments to conduct a thorough review. During the meeting, he directed the officers to accelerate progress on various schemes and instructed them to compile a list of individuals who have shown negligence in their duties.

Following CM Yogi’s instructions, the revenue officials have come into action. In this sequence, Revenue Board Chairman Rajneesh Dubey recently reviewed revenue related matters. He issued show-cause notices to revenue officers, ADMs, SDMs, naib tehsildars and tehsildar level officers for negligence in revenue-related matters.

Meanwhile, Chief Secretary Durga Shanker Mishra also held a meeting regarding revenue matters. During this, he reprimanded negligent officials in various districts of the state regarding revenue cases and instructed them to improve their work. He will soon submit a report on districts showing irregularities in revenue matters to the chief minister’s office, after which strict action may be taken against these officials.

During a meeting of the Revenue department chaired by Chief Secretary Durga Shanker Mishra, it was revealed that several districts have lagged behind in settlement of revenue-related cases. In response, he reprimanded officials and instructed them to bring improvements.

At the same time, work is going on at a very slow pace in Gorakhpur, Prayagraj, Barabanki, Jaunpur and Ghazipur in preparing gharouni under the SVAMITVA Yojana. The chief secretary issued directives to speed it up.

Apart from this, Mahoba, Chitrakoot, Muzaffarnagar, Shamli and Baghpat have lagged behind in settlement of revenue disputes. More than eight thousand cases are pending there.

In the meeting, the chief secretary found that real-time land records (khatauni) performance in Kanpur Nagar, Prayagraj, Varanasi, Chitrakoot and Balrampur was inadequate. Similarly, there was a significant shortfall in the percentage of khatauni revision and share determination in Varanasi, Sonbhadra, Ballia, Mainpuri and Gorakhpur. Only about 50 per cent of the share determination work has been done in these districts.

Additionally, progress in preparing gharouni under the SVAMITVA Yojana is slow in Gorakhpur, Prayagraj, Barabanki, Jaunpur and Ghazipur. The chief secretary directed officials to expedite these processes.

Apart from this, Mahoba, Chitrakoot, Muzaffarnagar, Shamli and Baghpat have lagged behind in settlement of revenue disputes. More than eight thousand cases are pending there.

It was revealed in the meeting that Lucknow, Prayagraj, Amroha, Fatehpur and Saharanpur are not doing well in Section-24 (measurement) under revenue dispute. Along with this, there has already been improvement in Kushinagar, Sonbhadra, Rae Bareli, Ballia and Amethi in Section-34 (transfer), but the percentage of settlement is less than 95 per cent.

Similarly, under Section-80 (conversion of agricultural land into non-agricultural land), 34 cases are pending in Ayodhya, 21 in Pratapgarh, 12 in Gorakhpur, 10 in Kanpur Nagar and seven in Barabanki. All these cases are more than one year and less than three years old. The chief secretary is expected to submit the full report to the chief minister’s office regarding this. After this, strict action can be taken against negligent officers by CM Yogi.
