Agratala: The Tripura government is planning some major change in the States land revenue and reforms system and contemplating to bring some amendment in the rules.
A four-member committee headed by former IAS officer Swapan Saha was formed to recommend necessary amendments in the Tripura Land Revenue and Land Reforms Act-1960. After detail review of the matter, the committee on Thursday submitted their report to Revenue Minister Narendra Chandra Debbarma.
Official sources refused to give details about the recommendations of the committee, but sources in the State Secretariat hinted that the committee has recommended some major changes in the land holding system, rate of land revenue, etc. It is likely to have some proposals about land exchange system also.
The BJP-IPFT coalition government after coming into power found some provisions of the act obsolete in view of the growing population, change in socio-political condition of the State and some other factors and felt the necessity to bring some changes.
The committee members also visited Assam to review the system being followed there. A final decision about amendment of the act will be taken after getting Cabinet approval.
