Minister Ramlal Jat will submit the report to the CM about visit to 11 districts
Increasing pendency in revenue matters: Minister Ramlal Jat visited 11 districts to prepare the details of the work, and will submit the report to the CM
There are more than 65 thousand cases pending with the collectors in the state and 4.25 lakh cases in the subordinate courts. The district administration, under the burden of other works including law and order, is neither able to hear these cases on time nor is giving priority to them. Amidst rising pendency, Revenue Minister Ramlal Jat is extremely upset with the functioning of the collectors. In such a situation, he himself has gone on a tour of the districts.
Have visited 11 districts so far and am going to visit the rest in the coming days. These districts have the highest number of cases of transfer of land revenue, ownership of land and post-partition cases. Out of these, a maximum of 61 percent of cases are pending at the SDM level.
Revenue Minister Ramlal Jat told that in the earlier cabinet meeting, there were instructions from the CM that all the ministers should visit all the districts of the state. On his instructions, I have so far visited 11 districts including Udaipur, and Ajmer divisions including Nagaur, Rajsamand, Pali. Now from 25 to 27, I will be on a tour of Bikaner, Hanumangarh and Ganganagar.
Almost the same number of cases are pending in all the districts. There are many problems in some districts, where collectors are paying less attention. The collector is the last stop in the problem. If a matter comes to Jaipur even after meeting him, it is not quite right. That's why I'm making the report myself. I will hand it over to the Chief Minister.
According to the minister, the reasons for the pending case are firstly the lack of employees on the revenue board, secondly, due to the breakdown of the joint family, disputes increase and thirdly there is a lack of social harmony. The minister also alleges that collectors get entangled in law and order matters when political parties give importance to matters like inciting riots. All the machinery is engaged in it and they are unable to hear.
Jat said that due to the same problems for years, the cases are pending. For this, everything was done online through portals like Dhara App, Apna Khata and E-Dharti. With Apna Khata, a person can trace his map, see the copy. One can see the status of the land from the Dhara app. By connecting the Gram Panchayats with software, it is being linked to the department.
The minister says that he is now writing to the CM for simplification by making changes in the Rajasthan Tenancy Rules 1955, Land Revenue Rules 1965 etc. Just as simplification of rules during the campaign with the administration cities solved many cases, similarly simplification of rules would reduce the pendency.
