CM instructs to resolve pending cases of mutation, partition and demarcation by 20th January, 2024

Chief Minister Thakur Singh Sukhu instructed to settle the pending revenue cases of mutation, partition and demarcation of land by January 20, 2024. The High Power Committee under the chairmanship of the Chief Minister today reviewed the pending revenue cases in the state and asked all the Deputy Commissioners to dispose of the pending cases on mission mode.

The Chief Minister said that the government was committed towards the service of the common man and to solve their problems was our first priority. He said that a large number of revenue cases were pending in the state, which need to be resolved immediately and all the officers should take immediate steps to resolve them.

Every revenue officer, right from Naib Tehsildar to Divisional Commissioner should hear and resolve the pending revenue cases on a daily basis and ensure their timely disposal and this will also be reflected in the ACR of all the concerned officers and officials. He said that the state government held 'Intekaal Adalats' on 30th and 31st October, 2023, throughout the state and out of 41,907 pending cases, 31,105 were disposed off on priority. He said that similar Adalats (courts) would be organised on 1st and 2nd December in the State, which has been now named as 'Revenue Lok Adalats', in which all the pending mutation and partition cases would be settled on priority.

Directions were issued to all the deputy commissioners to send the complete report of the cases disposed off on a monthly basis to the state government, containing the name, address and phone number of the person and other details in tabulated form. He said that the Deputy Commissioners should also hold meetings with the revenue officers in their respective districts and prepare a strategy for speedy disposal of the pending revenue cases. He also directed to rationalize the staff as per the requirement and said that all the appointments or dates, for hearing of revenue related matters, should not exceed more than three days. To overcome the shortage of staff in the districts, the state government will also allow Deputy Commissioners to hire retired Kanungos, he added adding that the services of summons can also be done through electronic means.

He directed the Chief Secretary to continuously review the revenue cases pending at the level of Divisional Commissioners. The Revenue Minister will also hold a meeting on the progress of this matter in the entire state before 20th January, 2024.
