Bhubaneswar, Oct 29 (LocalWire): Revenue Secretary Bishnupada Sethi has once again come to the rescue of a citizen attempting to resolve a decades-old land boundary dispute.
Prashant Mallick, of Koro Gram Panchayat in Kendrapara district, inherited a land boundary dispute in his village, from his father.
His father, who passed away in 2006, was a marginal farmer, who owned land in his village.
He had tried many times to get the land demarcated through private Amins, but failed in his endeavours.
Prashant applied to the local Tahsildar for carrying out the demarcation in November, 2018.
Although the Tahsildar sent notice to all the involved parties none of them responded and since then the case was pending.
Prashant then brought the matter to the notice of Revenue and Disaster Management Secretary, Bishnupada Sethi, on Oct 21, 2020.
“Within 1 hour I received information that the notice had been sent to all parties, and the date for the demarcation of the land boundary was fixed on Oct 27,2020,” said Prashant.
Although the opposition parties did not receive the notice, they attended the demarcation and the boundary marks were fixed, he added.
“I had heard of the Revenue Secretary’s good name in the public as well as in various departments.
We appreciate his actions in helping us end a decades-old land dispute,” said Hrudananda Mallick, elder brother of Prashant.
