`Bhoo Raksha: Rs 1000 Cr earmarked for land resurvey in Andhra

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said the resurvey of land has been taken up after 100 years and his government is committed to providing clear title deeds to the rightful owners.

Terming YSR Jagananna Saswata Bhoo Hakku and Bhoo Raksha scheme as great reform and revolutionary step, he said after proper and scientific resurvey title deeds will be handed over to rightful owners.

Chief Minister who also inaugurated the registration process in 37 villages of Guntur district, said the process would be completed in 11,501 villages by December 2022. He said in the first phase, resurvey was completed in 51 villages.

He said that the resurvey would ensure that there would be no scope for any future litigation and the land deals can be carried out at the village level with the implementation of the scheme.

"The reforms had to be taken up as 90 percent of the disputes are civil litigations and there are complaints of tampering with land records and the boundaries are not well marked. These problems could be solved if the land markings were done scientifically and an identification number is given to all landholders," he added.

After 100 years, the land resurvey was started with a budget of around Rs 1,000 crores Around 4.500 Survey teams, 70 CORS base stations, and 2,000 rovers have been pressed into service.

In the first phase, the resurvey was held in 51 villages covering 29,563 acres in which 3,304 objections were resolved. The remaining lands would also be resurveyed by June 2023 in phases and the registration would be carried in the respective village secretariats with a unique identity number.

Mandal Mobile Magistrate teams will clear the objections and once the resurvey is completed the state will take forward the Permanent Land Right Certificate issuing programme, he informed.

"This will put an end to the middlemen and the data can be viewed online from their respective villages besides speedy disposal of F line (15 days) and subdivision applications (30 days). After the resurvey is complete, registrations will be done at village secretariat level," he explained
