VIJAYAWADA: Krishna Joint Collector Gandham Chandruru has expressed dissatisfaction over the tardy pace of linking of pattadar passbooks of farmers with their Aadhaar numbers.
After a review of the progress in linking pattadar passbooks with Aadhaar numbers by CCLA Anil Puneta over video conference, Chandrudu said that there was no justification for doing only 78 per cent of the work relating to Aadhaar seeding to pattadar passbooks. He wanted officials to speed up the work.
The joint collector was not happy in regard to the pace of work in issuing pattadar passbooks to farmers. He wanted to know why there was delay as only 38,546 passbooks had been issued as against the 50,926 applications. There were 5.23 lakh pattadar passbooks of which 4.11 lakh had been seeded with Aadhaar numbers.
The joint collector also reviewed the progress of land acquisition for Machilipatnam Port, Gannavaram Airport and National Highways. The joint collector was informed that in respect of Machilipatnam, of the 5,324 acres required, the administration had handed over 412 acres to the developers in 2008. As regards government land, the officials told him that 10 surveyors were working on surveying the lands for the last 10 days. The joint collector felt that the progress was too slow and wanted the survey to be over within the next 24 hours.
