  • Locals hail CM, FM for landmark decision

SRINAGAR: Fulfilling the long-pending demand of the locals, the Government today ordered bifurcation of Achagoza-Bamnoo hamlet in Rajpora constituency of district Pulwama as separate revenue villages of Achagoza and Bamnoo. "In exercise of the powers conferred by Section-3 (1) (c) of the J&K Land Revenue Act Samvat-1996, sanction is hereby accorded to the bifurcation of Revenue Village Achagoza-Bamnoo into revenue villages Achagoza and Bamnoo,” said an order issued by the Commissioner Secretary to the Government, Revenue Department.


According to the order, the new revenue village of Achagoza shall comprise 4154 kanals of land area while the village Bamnoo shall comprise 2782 kanals of land area. The order said that separate Record of Rights shall be prepared for the new villages while the inhabitants of the new villages shall continue to have joint rights over the Kahcharai land and other common lands like pathways, roads, irrigation channels, springs, drinking water etc as were being enjoyed by them traditionally prior to the carving out of the new villages.


The bifurcation of these villages has been done on the initiative of Minister for Finance, Dr Haseeb Drabu, who represents the Rajpora constituency in the State Legislature. The people of the area have expressed gratitude to the Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti and the Finance Minister, Dr Haseeb Drabu for the landmark decision. They said the decision would go a long way in the focused socio-economic development of the village and its inhabitants who were otherwise neglected. Pertinently, the Government had earlier this year, on the initiative of Dr Drabu, created a separate revenue village of Lassidaban in the same area.
