Mangaluru, November 12: A review meeting was held at the Taluk Panchayat building at Mangalore on November 11th, Tuesday.
Asha Thimmappa Gowda ZP President who chaired the meeting was unhappy about the slow the progress in development works.
Zilla Panchayat Vice President Satish Kumpala opposed the proposal of granting 4.33 acres of land in Konaje for the government medical college and directed Tahsildar Mohan Rao to convert land into sites and distribute it to beneficiaries. He threatened of a serious protest if the government sticks to its decision. Tahsildar said that he has received a letter from gram panchayat president and also from the MLA asking to convert the land. A survey also has been conducted in the presence of the Assistant Commissioner, he said.
Asha Thimmappa Gowda said, the respective PDO’s should be informed whenever the surveyors conduct survey of government land. Meanwhile, the Tahsildar said that the Deputy Commissioner has appointed two surveyors to every two gram Panchayats. By next week the work will be undertaken and the list of beneficiaries to get sites will be ready by December 31st.
Satish Kumpala said that PDOs and Village Accountants should identify the land for sites at the earliest and they should maintain a rapport with the Tahsildar and should frequently update each other.
Asha Thimmappa Gowda said that officials should be careful not to allot sites to same beneficiaries twice. To avoid such problems, Zilla Panchayat Deputy Secretary Umesh directed the Tahsildar to delete the name of person from the beneficiary list while handing over the title deed. The location of the site, name of the scheme and the year till which he can’t sell the property should be mentioned, he added.
Everyone in the meeting opined that form 9/11 has become a problem in the district. Satish Kumpala alleged that it has become a barrier to provide shelter to poor by making land conversion system complex. Asha Thimmappa Gowda said that the matter will be forwarded to the District-in- Charge Minister once again.
Umesh ZP Deputy Secretary directed PDO’s of Nellikar, Moodushedde and Belma gram panchayat’s to get RTCs to the panchayat buildings at the earliest. There should be a crematory in every revenue village. To establish solid waste management unit, No Objection Certificate (NOC) is needed from five departments concerned including health and forest. Till date, two gram Panchayats have got NOCs, he said.
Yekkar gram panchayat has recorded 94 per cent tax collection till October. Paduperar gram panchayat has collected 85.18 per cent tax. Harekala GP was at the bottom of the list by achieving only 10 per cent collection.
In the meeting it was informed that, Rastriya Madhyamika Shikshana Abhiyan (RMSA) has sanctioned four high schools to the taluk to Amblamogaru, Konaje, Padavu and Kumpla.
Rajani, Taluk Panchayat President, Vishwanath, Executive Officer and others were present in the meet.
