In a most anticipated move, Telangana government on Monday decided to bid adieus to the Village Revenue Officer(VRO) system across the state.
If recalled, Telangana government from the past few months was seen making tall claims to unroot the corruption in the revenue department, which was also brought into discussion in assembly monsoon sessions.
In the line of the new decision taken by the state government, it was learnt that all the district collectors were instructed to submit all the official department records to the government by 5 pm on Monday. On the other hand, the Telangana government has issued instructions to stall all the land registrations from Tuesday.
It was also learnt that the authorities have already stopped the sale of e-stamps across the state since Monday morning. The government was learnt to take this sensational decision owing to the new Revenue Act which would be brought into force in the next few days.
Meanwhile, members of revenue employees association raised concerns over scrapping the VRO system while many employees demanded CM’s clarification on the move. As speculations that the VROs across the state are planning for a massive strike started floating, CM KCR openly stated that the decision would cause loss to none but employees themselves.
