Division-wise Detail of Revenue/ Acquisition
Cases(1995 to date)
Decided Under Total
BoR and all attached Departments
Office and Residential accommodation, including Patwar
Monitoring and Evaluation System not effective
Disposal of Revenue and Acquisitions cases are very slow
Wastage of Land Commision fund
Settlement of 65 villages of Chamb still pending
style and management operations
Very old method of record keeping
Very meager Funds for Printing of Forms.
Budget deficit (Rs. 1,13,65,500/- are to be paid to Govt. Printing Press).
Not functioning closed due to lack of funds
Monoply of Patwaries, bribery, political interference, patwaris has
hired their own munshies and private clerks who are involved in
Having said all the above functions, management , operations and
and physical resources of the BoR , it can be
concluded that the Revenue Department is one of the important
department of the state. It faces a lot of pressure and interaction with
civil society. The management style of the department seems multifuntionary and lack in human, physical, financial and technical
resources. The modus operandi at gross root level especially by
patwaris is outdated. Lack/insufficient patwarkhanas is the other
obstacle that hamper the smooth functioning of the department.
• A Special Revenue Magistrate should be at each District to hear the land

• M&E system should be more effective
• Revenue of Land(Malia) sould be restored that will generate more
receipts(income generation to the State
• Land Commission fund should be deposited in State Deposit Head
• Kalsa Sarkar Land situated in Town areas etc should be auctioned

for welfare of people)
• No Patwari should keep private clerk / Munshi, in case of failure,
action under AJK (Efficiency & Discipline) Rules, 2011 shall be
initiated against the concerned Patwaris
• The Patwaris discretionary powers should be ceased by installing
Rates of Taxes on the Notice Board in the offices of Patwari,
Tehsildars and Sub – Registrars as well as Additional Assistant
Commissioners (Revenue) in the Districts for awareness of the general
