Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Sunday said that the government would implement the ‘Zero Landless (Citizens) Kerala, 2015’ project to provide land for the landless in the state.
The work on registering the names of the landless poor has started in the village offices, he said at the ‘Pattayam Mela’ held at St Sebastian School , Nedumkandam.
The success achieved in distributing the pattayams is an example of the unity among different political parties, he said. Unity among political parties would help to achieve many things, he added.
“Steps would be taken to speed up the granting of the pattayam for those belonging to the areas not falling under the purview of the government. The government is examining the pattayam issues of commercial establishments,” he said. The error in the survey numbers of the pattayams already issued would be solved. A total of 3,457 pattayams, 987 ‘vanavakasha rekha’ and 15 kraya certificates were distributed in the mela. Revenue Minister Adoor Prakash presided over the meet.
Water Resources Minister P J Joseph distributed ‘vanavakasha rekha’. P T Thomas MP delivered the key note address at the function.
