SAMBALPUR: Green card holders gathered at the tehsil office here on Thursday claiming that there was an announcement to provide land to the landless among them.
Though the tehsil office denied any such announcement, the additional tehsildar Subrabala Behera said such a provision for green card holders exists in the rule book.
"There are no such plans as of now. We are yet to identify government land for the purpose," Behera said.
"I come from a very poor family. I do not have any cultivable land or homestead. I have submitted an application for a few decimals in the office with the required deposit of Rs 200," said Kuntala Rohidas of Talpadar village.
