Mangaluru, Aprl 3, 2017: DK DC Dr. K.G. Jagadeesha directed Mangaluru Tahsildar Mahadevaiah not to entertain applications filed by middlemen, simultaneously he directed officials to issue revenue records to people within 24 hours.
Participating in the quarterly district-level meeting to redress grievances of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes recently, DK DC Dr. Jagadeesha said that there were problems in clearing the applications filed at the office of Mangaluru Tahsildar in the Mini Vidhana Sounda as the record room was still in the DK Deputy Commissioner’s office complex.
DK DC Dr Jagadeesha said that steps have been taken to relocate the record room. “It will take a week to complete the process,” he said. When a Dalit activist alleged that middlemen were getting easy access to the record room, DC Jagadeesha asked Tahsildar, Mahadevaiah to give preference for applications filed by people and dispose it of within a day. “If any middleman files application then do not entertain it. Take action to arrest those persons,” Mr. Jagadeesha said.
Jagadeesha directed Mangaluru Tahsildar to carry out survey of 5.33 acres of “DC Manna” (land meant for welfare of SCs and STs) in Permannur village and issue title deed (Hakku Patra) to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes families residing there. If any other poor families are residing in the area, a proposal should be sent to his office for their rehabilitation. Action should be taken to allot remaining land to landless Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. DC Jagadeesha directed the Tahsildar to complete the process in one month.
DK DC Dr. Jagadeesha directed Assistant Commissioner, Muzrai Department, Pramila, to write to Kadri Manjunatha temple committee and other temple committees coming under the department for payment of minimum wages to personnel involved in cleaning activity in temples. This came after a complaint that the pourakarmikas in Kadri temple were paid a paltry sum of Rs. 5,000 per month.
