Bijayshree Routray, Revenue Minister


BHUBANESWAR: The state government is working on two Bills to check land grabbing and encroachments in the state. Both the Bills are expected to be tabled in the next session of the assembly, revenue minister Bijayshree Routray told the media here on Tuesday.

The minister's statement came in the wake of Ghangapatna land scam. "The law is going to be quite stringent with provisions for imposition of fine and other actions," Routray said.

"Thousands of acres of public property have been illegally occupied across the state. The new laws would go a long way in checking such activities," the minister observed.

He said the government had been working to e-connect all record rooms in the next two years to maintain transparency in land transactions. "There are over 1.84 lakh revision and 1.5 lakh mutation cases pending in the state. Steps have been taken to expedite disposal of these cases," he said.

The government had earlier constituted a sub-committee headed by then revenue minister S N Patro to study land acts in different states and suggest possible amendments in the state Act.
