Haryana To Appoint Nodal Officers To Bring Land Owners, Developers Closer
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has said that nodal officers will be appointed in all districts to identify land requirements of various development projects so that the same could be met out of the land offered by farmers for sale on the e-bhoomi portal. Khattar said this while presiding over a meeting to review the functioning of e-bhoomi portal of the Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) on November 29.
The CM said that the district revenue officer (DRO) concerned could be appointed as the nodal officer for this purpose. The chief minister also said that small chunks of land at different places could now be consolidated at a single place for development purposes, and a team of consolidation experts is needed for the speedy execution of this work.
He said that as the state government had decided to develop the two-km area on both sides of the Kundli-Manesar-Palwal (KMP) Expressway, the land requirement for the same should be prominently highlighted on the e-bhoomi portal so that the farmers could come forward with the land offers. He also directed authorities to make the registration process for aggregators more liberal, and organise workshops for them to acquaint them with the entire process.
Earlier this year, the government had decided to implement the scheme under which it would purchase the landholdings of farmers with their consent through an 'e-Bhoomi' portal, and use the consolidated land for development works.
Under the scheme, the farmers would upload details, including the price of the landholdings that they wish to sell, on the e-bhoomi portal.
