Punjab revenue officers write to CM, claiming MLAs humiliated and interfered.

Punjab revenue officers are threatening to cease land registries as of August 7 and have written a letter to the Chief Minister complaining about being humiliated and interfered with by MLAs. During a meeting of the Punjab Revenue Officers Association that took place on Saturday in Ludhiana, the employees of the revenue department passed a resolution condemning “misbehaviour faced by a patwari, tehsildar, and clerk” in the Ropar district.

Ludhiana: In an open letter to chief minister Bhagwant Mann, the Punjab revenue officials, including tehsildars, patwaris, kanugos, and others, complained of “humiliation and interference by MLAs” in their job and threatened to halt land registrations starting on August 7.

The revenue workers passed a resolution against “misbehaviour faced by a patwari, tehsildar, and clerk” in Ropar district at a meeting of the Punjab Revenue Officers Association held in Ludhiana on Saturday. They claimed that local AAP MLA Dinesh Chadha “conducted a surprise check and did a media trial of the employees without any basis.”

The state’s tax officials have determined that land registries will cease as of August 7th, according to the association’s president, Gurdev Singh. They believe it is entirely OK to humiliate and discredit revenue employees by alleging that we accept bribes for performing land registries, from MLAs to everyone else. The MLAs themselves, however, are the ones who coerce us into filling out incomplete acquaintance registration forms, and they then threaten to transfer us by using blackmail. The majority of registrations are halted because of a shortage of NOCs, which people are required to obtain from their local civic body. If they are unable to do so, they turn to their local MLAs, who then put pressure on us to conduct registrations without NOCs. Therefore, we have determined that starting on August 7, the government can delegate the task of creating registrations to whichever department they choose.
