Janashakthi Vedike demands government to withdraw E-Swathu, E-Khata
Karwar, Oct 13, 2021: Concerned over the problem created due to the E-Swathu and E-Khata system, Janashakthi Vedike has demanded the government to return to the old system of RTC.
“The new system of E-Swathu and E-Khata was started about 5 years ago. While it was to help the people, the reality is that it is creating unnecessary problems to the owners of Bin Shetki land (Non-Agriculture) owners,” Vedike president Madhav Nayak said.
He submitted a memorandum to the Urban Development Minister, District Incharge Minister and Chief Secretary of the state through Uttara Kannada Deputy Commissioner today.
“In case of financial need, people sell or mortgage their land. But under the new system, he has to provide various documents. For this, a common man has to run from pillar to post. This has created a lot of problems,” he said.
“To get E-Swathu and E-Khata, the layout plan is necessary and to get a layout plan the owner of the land has to give away a portion of his land for the road. Even if a person has a house built about 40 years ago and has been paying tax without fail, the document does not show him or will declare him as not having a layout plan. All these have created a lot of problems for the common man,” he added.
