GUWAHATI: The State Government is on the way to achieving a big goal – surveying 766 NC (Non-Cadastral) villages. The non-survey of 766 villages continues to deny land rights to the residents of the villages. Now the survey of the NC villages is nearing completion.

The Himanta Biswa Sarma-led State Government took the policy decision to survey the 766 NC villages scattered in Hojai, South Salmara, Mankachar, Kamrup, Lakhimpur, Dhemaji, Barpeta, Hailakandi, Cachar, Darrang, Sivasagar, Tinsukia, Dhubri, Majuli, Nagaon, Charaideo, Bongaigaon, Kamrup Metro and Jorhat districts.

The Mission Basundhara launched on October 2, 2021, was to resolve several land-related issues. The survey of NC villages was also a part of the mission. According to Revenue and Disaster Management (R&DM) Department sources, a 96 per cent survey of the NC villages is complete. The department expects to complete the task in two or three months.

Talking to The Sentinel, Revenue and Disaster Management (R&DM) Minister, Jogen Mohan, said, "The survey of NC villages is one of the priorities of the Himanta Biswa Sarma-led government in the state. The survey is going on in full swing. After the survey, we will provide land settlements to the indigenous people in such villages."
