The CM also launched a scheme aimed at providing free house site patta to the poor and needy people residing on non-objectionable government poromboke land.
About 1 lakh beneficiaries will get the patta under the special regularisation scheme. According to the revenue and disaster management department, longtime dwellers of non-objectionable government poromboke land parcels will be regularised while the needy and poor will get house site patta.
About 55,000 occupants of government poromboke land were identified in the first phase of which nine were given the patta as a token gesture by the chief minister through Tamil Nilam portal.
Subsequently, ministers will hand over patta to the beneficiaries identified across the districts in the coming days. By the month-end, 45,000 more needy and eligible people will get the free house site patta under the special regularisation scheme.
The patta to be handed over will have the type of land classification changed. Similarly, the required name changes will also be made. Through the Tamil Nilam website, the people identified can download their e-house site patta document without visiting any revenue department offices.
