Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy on 2 August said the state will continue the tribunals that were set up to resolve the land disputes even after the completion of the Comprehensive Land Survey (CLS). It will also establish a tribunal in every mandal across the state, he said.

Reviewing the CLS scheme here on Tuesday, Jagan laid emphasis on building a proper mechanism to resolve land disputes that may arise during the survey. He instructed officials to keep in place mobile tribunal units and asked the authorities to focus on launching the best system for resolving land disputes to help people get legal rights.

He told the officials to classify land disputes – disputes with the government and personal disputes – and mention them in the list of survey numbers to easily identify whether the land is legally clear.

Further, the Chief Minister stressed ensuring proper quality and standards in the survey process and told the authorities to adopt the same in the settlement of land disputes. He called for third-party supervision on appeals for a transparent process and to avoid causing loss to the claimant. This will also help in take taking action against staff members who commit mistakes, Jagan added.

The Chief Minister also instructed the officials to increase the monthly targets for aerial and drone flying operations during the survey and asked them to expedite the survey in municipalities and corporations.

As of now, officials are covering 1,000 villages per month. They will complete the survey by September 2023. Teams were asked to seek support from renowned legal firms to resolve critical issues and for better output.
