There has been a significant increase in the disposal of pending revenue cases in Uttar Pradesh since Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath reprimanded Revenue Department officials for negligence last month, the State Government said on October 19.
During a review meeting of the Revenue Department held on October 16, the Additional Chief Secretary Revenue informed the Chief Minister that, at present, the disposal ratio of pending revenue cases had been recorded at 100 per cent while the disposal ratio of revenue cases, in general, has exceeded 90 per cent, the Government said.
It is worth mentioning here that the Chief Minister had reviewed the report of the CM Command Center in the annex on September 16, where he had strongly reprimanded officials for the delay in settling the revenue matters. He had warned officials to make improvements within a month, or face music. As a result, nearly five lakh revenue cases were resolved within a month, while over 2.6 lakh cases, pending for one to five years, were also been settled.
Additional Chief Secretary of Revenue, Sudhir Garg, mentioned that in the revenue review meeting on October 16, the Chief Minister expressed happiness over the 100 per cent disposal ratio of pending revenue cases and gave directions to achieve a 95 per cent resolution rate for other revenue matters.
