MYSURU: Revenue Minister V Srinivas Prasad on Monday said the government has decided not to allot lands for separate graveyards based on castes as it has come out with common burial grounds.

Releasing the Revenue Employees’ Association’s calendar here, he said the government has been getting a good number of applications seeking separate lands, but it has turned down all such pleas. He said the government has held talks with the Advocate General to see if 10,000 village assistants serving for several years can be regularised by overcoming legal hurdles.

He said competition has increased for the posts of village accountants, and added that the process would be streamlined and steps be taken to fill up vacancies in a phased manner.
