Bengaluru: All 50 new taluks will come into being on January 1

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Dec 5: State revenue minister, Kagodu Thimmappa, said that 50 new taluks which were announced in the budget will become functional from January 1, 2018 onward, as per a decision taken by the state government. He was speaking to media persons at Vidhana Soudha on Monday December 4.

"All these 50 taluks will become functional on January 1, 2018. There have been demands to include some new areas in the list of taluks but these requests are yet to be scrutinized," he explained.

The minister also stated that new revenue villages that have been created will also come into existence from January 1 and that there is a proposal to convert residential areas having population of one thousand or more into revenue villages. "So far, final notification has been issued relating to 600 residential localities. The work of issuing notification for 400 more localities is in progress. As such, with the advent of New Year, 50 new taluks as well as one thousand revenue villages will be created," he stated.

Thimmappa added that the President has given his assent to the act that gives ownership of house where one lives to that person and that the beneficiaries under this scheme will begin getting title deeds from February onward. He clarified that ammendment will have to be brought to Certain Inams Abolition Act as lessees under 14 kinds of Inams are yet to get title deeds, adding that these ammendments would be moved during the next session of the legislature.

"We had brought ammendment to the provision which stipulated that those who cultivate grazing land should have 30 acres of land for every 100 cattle for being eligible to get certificate of grant from the government. This had been challenged in the high court, and the court has since dismissed the writ petition. We have issued circulars asking officials to take immediate steps to issue these certificates to farmers. With the dismissal of the writ petitions, cultivators of 2.5 lac Bagar Hukum land have got justice. We have decided to issue such certificates even to people cultivating B Kharab and woodlot (Gunduthopu) lands," he said.

When questioned about his likelihood of entering the election fray in the assembly election, Kagodu said that the party will decide about his candidature and also about issuing ticket to his daughter. He said he does not ask anyone to fight the election, as fighting an election is a tough task where defeats and victories will have to be endured and enjoyed. He at the same time, lamented the fact that elections which happened to be an area of social service in the past have turned into a business now.
