State completes registration  process of 18K families

Kolkata: The Mamata Banerjee government has successfully completed the much required registration process of 18,000 families dwelling in refugee colonies within the stipulated time to give them the free hold title deeds.

This comes when Chief Minister Mamata Banerhee announced giving free hold title deeds to each and every resident of refugee colonies in the state. Her government has also regularised the land of the refugee colonies following a nod by the cabinet to ensure that no one can be evicted from where they are residing.

The state Land and Land Reforms department is carrying out the mammoth task of giving the freehold title deed to the residents of the

refugee colonies.

There are basically two types of refugee colonies. One those are on the land of the state government while the other is on plots of the Centre and private land.

In the first phase, a list of 25,000 families in refugee colonies was prepared and a target was set to give them free hold title deeds by December. "There is a need to undergo a registry between the beneficiary and the state government on the other side to get it documented that the plot belongs to the former. In a recently held review meeting, we have found that at least 18,000 beneficiaries have undergone the process to get the title deed," said a state government official.

Besides continuing with the work of giving the free hold title deeds to the 25,000 beneficiaries in the first phase, the concerned department has also initiated the survey to help residents of these refugee colonies in getting the same in the next phases.

This comes when the Chief Minister had announced that 1.25 lakh free hold title deeds will be distributed.

"The survey will be conducted in around 250 refugee colonies to get measurement of the plot on which each of the families is residing. Even many districts are still informing about more such colonies which will also be brought under the initiative," the officials said.
