Jagan directs officials to focus on increasing revenue

Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy held a review meeting of revenue-earning departments here at the camp office on Friday and directed officials to focus on increasing the revenue in stamps and registrations, Excise, commercial taxes, transport, and mining departments.

During the meeting, the Chief Minister instructed the authorities to expedite the registrations for OTS and TIDCO beneficiaries.

He said awareness must be created about the registration services that are being made available in the village and ward secretariats so people can avail of those services. He said people must be educated about both legal rights and security that come with the registration process.

Jagan said steps should be taken to roll out registration services in selected secretariats by 2 October along with providing permanent land deeds under Jagananna Saswatha Bhu Hakku - Bhu Raksha scheme.

In this regard, the officials informed the CM that steps are being taken to roll out the services in 650 villages where over 14,000 village/ward secretariat staff are being trained to handle the registration process.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister directed the forest department officials to focus on promoting bamboo cultivation in the state.

Mining

The officials informed the CM that there are more than 2,700 non-operating quarries related to minor minerals that are yet to resume operations. Jagan directed them to make the quarries operational as they can increase the state's revenue.

Also, the officials informed the CM that so far, production has started in Suliyari coal mines that are being operated by APMDC. The Chief Minister said the coal from the Suliyari mine should be supplied to various industries across the state, including Genco, as it will benefit Genco-led power projects. He instructed the officials to focus on participating in the next coal auction process.

Taxes and Excise

Discussing commercial taxes and Excise, the Chief Minister advised restructuring commercial taxes by assigning clear responsibilities to everyone in the department. He told the authorities to establish a data analytics section along with a legal cell and OTS facility to collect pending arrears by the end of June. He also ordered strict action against the transport and manufacturing of illicit liquor.
