Massive developments are undergoing in the state of Telangana. Recently, the Telangana State Legislative Assembly on Friday gave a nod to the new Revenue Bills paving the way for developments in land administration and registration in the State. Bills like The Telangana Rights in Land and Pattadar Passbooks Bill 2020, the Telangana Abolition of the Posts of Village Revenue Officers Bill 2020, the Telangana Municipal Laws Amendment Bill 2020 and the Telangana Panchayat Raj Amendment Bill 2020 were given a yes without any changes after discussions for more than five hours.
CM KCR reportedly said, “These bills are only the first step in ushering revenue reforms in the State. Though providing conclusive titles to landowners could put an end to land disputes in the State, we still have a long way to go to establish complete reforms which will require the enactment of some more laws and abolition of others." The CM was giving explanations to issues raised by legislators during the discussions on the Bills.
Reemphasizing that the State government was neither ending the old Revenue Acts nor was it succeeding them with the launch of the Dharani portal, Chandrashekhar Rao said: “We had about 160 to 170 laws in erstwhile Andhra Pradesh which were brought down to 87 in Telangana State after repealing old and irrelevant Acts. Now, the Dharani website will be used as a tool to reduce corruption and improve transparency. This is not the only solution to end all our woes.” He gave a clarification adding that the new Revenue Act will be a collection of various laws.
