PATNA: Bihar's former additional chief secretary K B Saxena on Wednesday underlined the need to set up an independent body for managing and monitoring the government land.

Saxena, currently associated with the Council for Social Development-New Delhi, was delivering a lecture at a training programme on 'Bihar Land Reforms Acts, Rules and Circulars for government officials (land reforms deputy collector and circle officers)', organized at A N Sinha Institute of Social Studies in collaboration with the state department of revenue and land reforms and Land Reforms Core Committee.

Saxena said land provides the most stable financial security to people in agriculture-based economies. "The advent of technology has diluted the issue of land reforms. The stratification of society into 'haves' and 'have-nots' has compounded this problem. It is also a stumbling block in the implementation of reforms," he said and added all this further necessitates a comprehensive law on land reforms and simplification of existing laws.

Principal secretary (revenue and land reforms) Vyasji appealed to officials to use knowledge and sensitivity to reach out to common people, understand their issues regarding land reforms and resolve them.

ANSISS director D M Diwakar, in his welcome address, appreciated the experiment of establishing synergy among government, civil society, researchers, academics and social activists to fight for justice through the land reforms agenda.

"We have successfully completed training for six batches of DCLRs and COs with the hope that this knowledge and sensitivity will help them finish the unfinished land reforms agenda," Diwakar said. Social activist Rameshwar Prasad said the issue of land is invariably related to the democratic rights of people.
