ALAPPUZHA: Although the government had sanctioned Rs 4.74 crores in April for 79 homeless persons, including nine families, who are staying at New Lower Primary School, Purakad since 2012, red tape has tangled the much-touted housing project.

As per the project, the government had decided to disburse Rs 10lakh to each family for a three cents plot of land and house. C.P. Anirudhan, deputy director, fisheries department, said the project slowed as a result of anomalies in the process of issuing value certificate of the land that had to be given by the revenue department.  Also, ...

Hyderabad: Identifying Wakf lands difficult, says Revenue staff 14.12.2017
Hyderabad: Revenue officials in the city are facing difficulties in identifying land owned by the Wakf Board due to lack of gazette notifications, schedules and sketches. The revenue department took up the field level verification of Wakf land after instructions from the government following the seizure of the Wakf Board office about one-and-a-half month ago. The focus is on identifying vacant Wakf land parcels, those with permanent structures, land under encroachment and those on which there is litigation. The revenue staff is also identifying the tenure of occupancy in cases of encroachments. A few tahsildars said data was missing on land in some cases. They found that instead of 714 Wakf assets in Bandlaguda mandal, the mandal revenue office has records for 140. It is believed that the records of the other assets could be in neighboring mandals of Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts. In Saidabad, out of 175 assets, 125 are under the jurisdiction of the mandal revenue office and the remaining are ...
