A total of 20,419 applicants from Lakhimpur district have been found to be eligible for land pattas under Mission Basundhara 2.0 that got concluded recently. Of these, Bihpuria LAC accounts for 1,253, Ranganadi LAC accounts for 1,352, Nawboicha LAC accounts for 3,244, Lakhimpur LAC accounts for 3,087 numbers of land pattas while rest are from the Dhakuakhana LAC.

Speaking at the event, Chief Minister Dr. Sarma said land pattas being allotted to so many families in Lakhimpur district manifests the commitment of the present State government towards ensuring a dignified existence to the members of the indigenous groups. The Chief Minister said numerous indigenous but non-tribal communities in Lakhimpur district were being deprived of land pattas due to the restrictive rules and regulations of tribal belts and blocks. The current government, therefore, decided to mitigate the land-related woes of such non-tribal indigenous communities through the medium called Mission Basundhara 2.0, the Chief Minister said. In Lakhimpur and Dhemaji districts in particular, non-tribal but indigenous communities who have been designated “protected class” have benefited immensely through Mission Basundhara 2.0, he remarked.
