It may be noted that the government took the decision in the interest of Public Service and for administrative convenience to shift the Divisional Commissioner, Barak Valley to function from Silchar instead of Guwahati.
Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal reviewed the progress of steps taken for distribution of land patta to one lakh landless indigenous families within the month of January this year.
The Chief Minister while chairing a meeting asked the Revenue & Disaster Management department to expeditiously complete necessary formalities in this regard.
The Chief Minister also directed the department to take appropriate measures so that more than the targeted numbers could be covered under this initiative. The Chief Minister further directed the Chief Secretary and the officials of the Revenue department to hold interaction through video conference with the circle officers and the lot mandals for speedy implementation of land patta distribution to the landless families.
