The Government of Telangana has decided to update all the land records in state. The officials concerned will be trained by the Government to take up purification of land records. The Government will rectify the lapses if any in the existing records to avoid scope for irregularities in the land transactions.
Lapses in Assignment Land Records:
It is observed that there was no proper record of assignment lands in over 10,000 villages across the State of Telangana. There are problems in Urban areas also with regard to demarcation of surplus lands under urban land ceiling, evacuee properties and wakf lands in some areas.
Pahanis in the name of dead:
Another main reason for the decision of the Government is the continuance of the pahanis and other basic land records in the name of the dead. Mutations of the properties also have not been done properly as the occupants / buyers had not submitted the details to the officials concerned.
Identification of Government Lands:
The exercise of the Telangana Government was aimed at identifying the extent of Government lands like owned by the revenue department, endowment lands, evacuee properties as well as wakf lands. The tahsildar had been asked to verify the existing records and ascertain whether the occupants were genuine beneficiaries through the gram sabhas.
