Telangana to have properties linked with Aadhaar; know more
In a major announcement, the Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today said that the land properties would have to be linked to the respective Aadhaar numbers.
This comes ahead of distribution of land ownership passbooks to owners from March 11.
He said that those who fail to Aadhaar linking, the properties would be considered benami.
He said that farmers who had been assigned lands should also be given these passbooks just like other farmers, an official release said.
The Telangana government, the release said, was introducing a system similar to banks to administer land records. It added that it was a first for any state in the country.
It aimed at facilitating immediate changes in land records whenever any transaction took place, officials said.
Rao said that lands under the possession of beneficiaries should be identified and clarity should be provided on ownership rights.
Rao said that some people in Medchal, Rangareddy and some other districts had not linked their Aadhaar cards with these records and asked them to do so at the earliest.>
