Mangaluru: People of Kudupu yet to get title deeds for lands

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)
Mangaluru, Mar 5: Over 32 Koraga families which have built their cottages in Kudupu village in the outskirts of the city have been living there for the last four generations. The 32 Hindu families, who are the aborigines of the place, are yet to get title deeds for the lands.
Even though the city corporation had taken a decision in 2018 to distribute 8.94 acres of land to 40 Koraga aborigines, the officials and people's representatives have failed to ensure that the title deeds are created. The officials say that the land, which was earmarked as buffer REN for specific purposes and cannot be sanctioned as a residence.
Koragajja Seva Trust leaders question the existence of various layouts and Mangala Jyothi Institution having been accommodated in the area. They have questioned the plan behind a denial of land to them. The Koragas living here feel that the officials do not want to give them valuable land as they feel that they can well be settled in some corner away from the main road. Even though the struggle is on and the affected families applied under different provisions, their land has not been set out for them individually.

This land was given by Venkoji Rao by way of a gift deed in 1912. City corporation deputy commissioner (administration), Santosh Kumar, says that the area has been announced as an area that cannot be developed by Karnataka State Pollution Control Board. This is stopping the departments from issuing title deeds, he said. He also pointed out the existence of a Pachanady dumping yard nearby, which is again a minus point.

    Deputy Commissioner Mr. Santosh Kumar, Dumping Yard is in Vamanjoor, it is no where so close to Kudupu, people in Vamanjoor are not facing any difficulty, they have the dumping smell problem, but people of Kudupu are not effected by those problems. Don't fool poor people.
