GUWAHATI: The state Cabinet today took several decisions, including direct 'myadi patta' to the indigenous landless people of the state.
In the existing system, the government allots land to indigenous landless people who can get 'myadi patta' after three years. However, the Cabinet today decided to provide direct 'myadi patta' to such people instead of land allotment. However, relaxation is not without a rider. In the existing system, an indigenous landless person getting government land can sell or hand over the land to others after three years. However, today the Cabinet decided that the receiver of the land cannot sell or hand over the land to another within 15 years.
Other decisions of the Cabinet are –
(i) Approval to starting the process for appointment of 22,921 sanctioned vacant posts in the Education department – 10,000 in Elementary schools and 12,921 in Secondary schools, besides holding a special TET for the filling up of 1,464 vacant teachers' posts for ST (Hills) candidates.
(ii) Holding special TET for the filling up of language teacher posts for Bodo, Garo and Manipuri.
(iii) The Cabinet decided to streamline registration after buying flats. The existing system is a meandering one involving permission from the deputy commissioners and circle officers etc. However, the Cabinet today decided to make it a registration between the buyers and the sellers of flats, without needing permission from the district administration. The Cabinet took this decision as in Guwahati alone around 1,700 such registrations are pending.
(iv) No new cases will be registered against any people belonging to the Gorkha community at the FTs (Foreigners Tribunals) and the already registered cases will be withdrawn.
(v) The Cabinet also simplified the procedure for getting trade licences. An applicant now doesn't need to move the municipal corporations or boards for such licences. They can apply for trade licences online.
(vi) Former MP Ramen Deka has been appointed as co-vice chairman of SITA and will be accorded the Cabinet rank.
