HYDERABAD: As many as 500 complaints have been received against revenue authorities at the grievance cells in districts.
As per the data accessed from revenue department by Express, show cause notices have been issued against 26 Mandal Revenue Officers and disciplinary action initiated against eight MROs, as part of the Land Records Updating and Purification (LRUP) drive across the State.
