“The error in land mutation process has been noticed over a long period of time beginning since 2015-16 as the plot and khata number mentioned for the concerned has not been found as per latest land records,” said Singh to The Telegraph Online.

Singh said that two kinds of government land records exist including the old and new land records but the mutation and registry of the concerned lands have been carried out as per the old land records.

“We have asked in show cause notice that why land registration and mutation has been carried out as per the old land government records despite the presence of new records.”

Dhanad resident, Ramesh Kumar Rahi had written three letters to K.K. Soan, secretary of Department of Revenue, Registration and Land reforms pointing out the anomalies in land registration and land mutation and cited over 150 examples of erroneous land registration.

Singh according to the instruction of Soan, constituted a committee headed by additional collector Shyam Naryan Ram, of six different sub committees. The committee in its preliminary enquiry detected errors in the land registration and land mutation process and hence show cause notice to 22 people was served.

“A technical team led by Additional Collector Shyam Narayan Ram constituted to probe the anomaly will check the documents submitted by the concerned persons along with their reply and submit a final report,” said the DC.
