Coalition Government At Dispur Contemplating On Skipping Actionia Patta

GUWAHATI: With a view to giving the indigenous people of rural Assam a succour, the coalition government at Dispur is contemplating on skipping one of the three steps (actionia patta) while issuing land pattas.

In Rural Assam, the process of giving land allotment to landless people has three distinct phases. First, the government allots a plot of land to people at the approval of the land advisory committees concerned. Such committees are located at district and sub-divisional levels, and they are under the supervision of deputy commissioners and SDOs civil. After three years of land allotment, the government allots them (recipients of government land) actionia patta. After another three-year period, the government provides such people myadi pattas.

This is the rule followed in rural Assam while issuing land pattas. However, the ground reality in most of the cases is quite different. The process is very lengthy taking more than six years, rural people, including farmers, often fail to pursue the process. In most of the cases, such people are deprived of ownership of the land under their possession. Lack of ownership of land under their possession makes such rural people face innumerable problems.

According to sources in the State Revenue and Disaster Management Department, in order to make the process of land allotment simpler and less time-taking, Dispur is now trying to skip the middle step – providing actionia pattas – so that myadi pattas can be issued three years after allotment of land. This system, according to the sources, will have a rider – the land to be issued myadi patta will have to be used only for the purpose it was used allotted.

Dispur feels that such an easing out of the system will be a succour for the indigenous rural people of the State.
