The meeting was attended by Tehsildar Headquarters Mubashir Saleem Nazki, Tehsildar Bandipora Rouf Iqbal and other senior officers of the department besides Patwaris and Naib-Tehsildars.

The meeting discussed threadbare various issues pertaining to the Revenue Department including digitization of land records, various measures towards removal of encroachments on state/Kahcharai land, status of writing of Jamabandi, status of writing of Girdawaris, attestation of pending mutations, conducting of Girdawari Rabi and submission of Goshwara-jinswara, distribution of pass books, inspection of Patwar Khana and report of karguzari, availability of patwaries in the field and ban on conversion of agriculture land.

ACR stressed on the Revenue officials to complete the Jamabandis within the stipulated time frames and also urged them to conduct special mutation camps. He asked Patwaries to make frequent visits to their respective areas to keep check on encroachments and also asked Naib-Tehsildars to hold special mutation camps in their respective areas every week besides completing Jamabandi.

He further stressed for timely disposal of revenue cases, regular camps in villages with mobilization of field functionaries for resolving issues of residents and on spot delivery of services as per PSGA.
