Khammam: Report blames tahsildars for mess in land record purification 7.9.2019
Khammam: The tahsildars of different mandals are being faulted for the mess in issuing pattadar passbooks. Instead of checking the irregularities resorted to by village revenue officers in changing survey numbers, many of the tahsildars connived with them. The government in its report says that tahsildars made a mess of the land records purification programme due to their nonchalant attitude. Tahsildars were given all powers pertaining to the records of land rights and they entrusted the job to the village revenue officers, who did the job according to their whims. Interestingly, the tahsildars made the people suffer by going by the advice of the VROs. "The government is angry on land issues because of tahsildars as well as the VROs and has decided to change the revenue act," said an official working in the revenue department. According to one estimate, nearly Rs 200 crore has been lost because of corruption  in Khammam and Bhadradri districts during the land records purification. Some ...

GST collections dip below Rs 1L crore to Rs 98,202 crore in August 2.9.2019
New Delhi: In a monthly collection of GST, the government on Sunday witnessed a lower tax mop-up of below Rs 1-lakh crore in the month of August this year as compared to the collections received in the previous month. According to official data released by Department of Revenue, country's gross revenue from GST collections slipped below Rs 1-lakh crore to Rs 98,202 crore in August, while in July it stood at Rs 1.02 lakh crore. With a lower GST mop-up this month, the officials are of view that the government finances may undergo severe pressure to meet fiscal target. "The lower tax collections may increase burden on the Centre for compensating states for revenue shortfall, thereby making difficult to meet the fiscal targets," said an official. However, the year on year basis, the GST mop-up of August was 4.5 per cent higher than the Rs 93,960 crore collected in the same month last year. This is the second time this year that the revenue collection from the GST has slipped below the Rs 1 lakh ...
