HYDERABAD: Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has directed officials to link Aadhaar numbers with pattadar passbooks, to be distributed to farmers as part of Land Records Updation Programme (LRUP). Farmers who do not come forward to link their Aadhaar with passbooks, their land would be treated as benami land, he said.
“It has come to my notice that some people in Medchal, Ranga Reddy and other districts have not linked their Aadhaar with land records. They should give their Aadhaar details at the earliest. Lands that are not linked with Aadhaar number will be treated as Benami properties,” CM said.
The state government is planning to give input subsidy to farmers from the next financial year. The passbooks will be used for taking loans from banks. KCR reviewed the distribution of passbooks with revenue officials at Pragati Bhavan on Friday. He asked officials to issue pattadar passbooks to farmers holding government-assigned lands along with patta landowners. He instructed officials to identify assignees and their rights before issuing passbooks.
