The Punjab government has launched a special campaign to settle land partition petitions by March 31.
Directing the revenue officials of Patiala and Ropar divisions on Saturday, financial commissioner (revenue) Karan Avtar Singh said chief minister Parkash Singh Badal had issued a special instruction to settle all cases pending for the past over one year.
“The cases pending in departmental courts of the revenue department will be settled by March 31 in order to time-bound justice to people,” said Singh.
He added the government, for this purpose, had also started a revenue call centre in Jalandhar from where people get update about their cases.
“The call centre will also help people settled internationally and across country to get information about details of their respective lands online,” he said.
He also directed the deputy commissioners of Patiala and Ropar divisions to hold monthly meetings to get updates about pending cases concerning land partitions, girdawari and other land-related cases.
“The cases pending for more than one year will be settled on the priority basis,” he said.
Meanwhile, he said the ‘e-stamping’ system would soon be launched across the state as the system received satisfactory response in Amritsar, Bathinda, Jalandhar and SAS Nagar districts.
Patiala divisional commissioner Ajit Singh Pannu said attendance of revenue officers would be ensured in order to provide timely services to the people.
