“The revenue map of villages, towns and cities of the state can now be ordered online. The speed post facility will be provided by the department of posts for the delivery of digitized revenue/land records”, the minister said.
He said that his department has decided to launch an intensive drive in April to remove encroachments both in commercial and residential areas.
“The drive will begin from my own constituency Aurai (Muzaffarpur) and it will be carried out in other parts of the state. The encroachments will be removed by March 2023,” he said and sought the cooperation of the people.
“We know that in certain areas land mafias have encroached on government lands. Such encroachments will be removed, no one will be spared,” the minister added.
