Officers Involved In Encroachment Of Govt Lands To Be Dismissed: LG, Murmu

Jammu, Jan 18: Lt Governor Girish Chandra Murmu had directed vice-chairman of the organisation to dismiss officials who failed to perform their duty or in any way involved with the encroachers in encroachment of land.

The Lt Governor, during the review of JDA asked the Vice-Chairman Rajiv Ranjan to ensure that enforcement staff is sensitised to keep the encroachers of JDA land at bay.

Murmu has directed the VC to devise a mechanism of ensuring every official of the enforcement wing has a particular land parcel allotted to him for surveillance against encroachment and if at all the said official fails to perform the duty or in any way connives with the encroachers, the said official should be penalised to the extent of dismissal from the service, if need be.

LG further directed the officers to fix conspicuous “government land” signboards in and around all state lands, community water bodies within a period of 15 days, take immediate steps for demarcation of all such lands, and make provision for constructing boundary walls around them along with plantation of trees.
