Concerned over delays in the demarcation and partition of land, Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh today conveyed his displeasure to revenue officials and asked them to expedite the work. “Despite appointments of revenue officers in tehsils and sub-tehsils, the completion of demarcation and partition is taking ample time and I have been receiving a large number of complaints in this regard while touring the rural areas,” he said.
Presiding over the annual state-level convention of HP Revenue Officers’ Association here today, the Chief Minister announced that tehsildar would be given vehicle for official use and said those performing well would be promoted to the post of district revenue officers in a phased manner. Stressing the need for speeding up demarcation and partition to provide much-need relief to people in rural areas, he said, “Where there is a will there is a way.”
