Jammu: Revenue department officials will not be able to offer the land to other people after selling the land. Deputy Commissioner Jammu Sushma Chauhan has issued instructions to deposit Fard with serial number in five places on selling land. The record of selling the land will remain with the Deputy Commissioner, ACR, Revenue Department and the landowner. This will harden the cases of offering land in a fake way. This information was given by the House Committee, Formulation of Building Plan and Scheme, Jammu City Chairman Rajendra Sharma in a press conference at the Town Hall.
He said that corruption was increasing in the city. After selling the land, no real owner could be found. In some cases a piece of land was being named for eight to ten people. In this, the officials of the Revenue Department used to tear Fard on selling the land. One sold the land to the owner and the other lived near Patwari. Due to this, there was a lot of arbitrariness. Crores of rupees were being taken on offering land names to the people. The issue was brought to the notice of Deputy Commissioner Jammu Sushma Chauhan.
Now the order has been issued on this. Thousands of cases are going on in court. The court used to order pathwari to spot the spot. But action could not take place. Many such cases have also been reported in Jammu city. Now it has been tightened completely. Councilors Pramod Kapahi and Gaurav Chopra were present on the occasion.
