Hyderabad: Barely two months after its launch, the Dharani portal, a unique one-stop platform for transaction of agriculture lands, has yielded the desired results with as many as 80,000 people completing land registrations, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said on Thursday.
He said the portal was launched to ensure that farmers do not face any problems in sale, purchase, registration or mutation of agriculture lands.
Addressing a high-level review meeting at Pragathi Bhavan here, the Chief Minister expressed satisfaction over the fact that farmers were now able to go through registration, sale, purchase and mutation within minutes, without resorting to bribes or using influence. They do not have to make the rounds of various offices to get their job done, he said.
Pointing out that within two months, as many as 1.6 lakh people booked slots and 80,000 had already completed their registrations, Chandrashekhar Rao said 90 per cent of the farmers in the State had land holdings of less than five acres, and the government’s aim was to make sure that these farmers go about the registration and mutation process without any problem.
“If there are any issues or uncertainties regarding agriculture lands, the District Collectors will solve them in two months,” he said, adding that more options would be added to the portal besides improving the functioning. He instructed the officials concerned to ensure that more options are added to the portal besides strengthening it. “There is absolute transparency in agriculture land transactions after the launch of Dharani,” he observed.
After holding a detailed discussion, the Chief Minister issued the Collectors several instructions, including carrying out mutation of lands registered based on the registered documents before the Dharani portal came into force. Applications should be accepted through MeeSeva and slots allotted for such mutations.
The District Collectors, he said, should examine applications for regularisation of Sada Bainamas and finalise the ownership rights. As per the regularised Sada Bainamas land, the details should be registered on the Dharani portal and pattadar passbooks should be issued, he said, adding that barring land cases pending in courts, the Collectors should solve all the problems within 60 days of all the lands that have been placed under Part B during the Comprehensive Land Records Survey. If need be, they should undertake field inquiries, take decisions and finalise ownership rights, he said.
