The government of Jammu and Kashmir has taken slew of measures and initiatives on the ground to change the face of administration. Recently Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir reiterated the commitment of the government to change the system for good while he was delivering online lecture on “New Initiatives in Revenue Administration” at IMPARD, Srinagar

The lecture was in the nature of an interactive session and part of a semi virtual workshop series on Disaster Preparedness, Revenue Courts, Digitization and Other Revenue Matters, which was launched in J&K IMPARD. The participants in the workshop included Revenue officers of all ranks from Financial Commissioner Revenue down to Patwaris. The purpose of the workshop was to give a chance to participants to interact with other Revenue officers.

He said that since Revenue officers need to implement laws, they need capacity building on a regular basis adding that the basic purpose of the current workshop was to equip the participants with proper knowledge of Revenue laws. The objective of the JK government is to make the Revenue department as a model for other states to replicate, he added. He said that since land disputes are common in villages, it should be the prime concern of Revenue officers to take special care of such issues for speedy redressal. He stressed on the need to set up an efficient Revenue Dispute Redressal System to sort such matters. He also emphasized the need for efficient management of revenue records besides learning of revenue related best practices being implemented in different parts of the country by the concerned officials.
