Changing the system
There has been a lot of progress in digitization of land records and the process is almost completed.
Recently the Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir reviewed the progress of the revenue department on the ground.
He was told by the officers Geo-referencing of 72% cadastral maps has been completed till date. It was further revealed that both the scanned and digitized data is available in public domain. The computerized records can be translated into multiple languages as per the requirement of the user.
He chaired the State Level Sanctioning Committee (SLSC) meeting of Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) under Krishonnati Yojana, RKVY, MIDH and PMKSY.
He laid emphasis on saturating possible benefits to farmers under these Schemes. He also asked for implementing the specific schemes in the areas where the results are likely to yield maximum benefits to the public.
He laid stress on promoting Millets as a ‘super food’. He asked them to utilize the opportunity of Shri Amarnathji Yatra for its promotion. He also asked them to converge these schemes with the ‘One District One Product’ and Amrit Sarovar scheme for enhancing their impact on ground. He also asked for giving more focus to the production of pulses, cereals and oil seeds so that J&K contributes to reducing imports from outside. He enquired about the ways for enhancing the per capita income of farmers. He directed the Agricultural Universities to formulate a farm income tracking system so that its monitoring becomes possible. He took this opportunity to ask for an export plan for all the crops grown here.
