Chhattisgarh tehsil reorganisation panel’s period extended up to December 31

RAIPUR: Chhattisgarh government has extended the period of the one-member Block and Tehsil Reorganisation Commission headed by former chief secretary SK Mishra up to December 31, 2014. The government has extended the period of the commission in anticipation of approval of the cabinet.

According to the order issued by the General Administration Department dated July 28, 2014, the public hearing held by the chairman, Block and Tehsil Reorganisation Commission, is still going on and probably may take time to complete it and prepare the report.

During the extended period the commission will examine three additional reference points and submit its recommendation. (1) Assessment of non-recurring and recurring expenses on the reorganisation of tehsils and blocks recommended by the commission. (2) Review of sub tehsil system in the revenue administration of the state. Examination of the condition of sub tehsils after the formation of new tehsils and reorganisation of the present tehsils recommended by the commission and need of sub tehsils in the future. (3) Assessment of measures for Patwari Halka and Revenue Inspector Boards in view of rationalisation of the revenue administration units at the lowest level of tehsils.

The Panchayat and Rural Development Department will bear the expenditure on the facilities being given to the commission.

In two separate orders issued by the GAD on June 28 and June 30, 2014 respectively, the working period of the chairman of the commission SK Mishra and secretary SL Nayak had been extended to December 31, 2014. This extension has also been made in the contract service period of Nayak.

The Panchayat and Rural Development Department had formed the commission on February 23, 2014 for recommending reorganisation of development blocks. In its order dated September 2, 2013, the GAD had given responsibility to the commission for recommending reorganisation of tehsils also, along with the blocks. In view of that the GAD, in its order dated March 19, 2014, had extended the time of the commission up to June 30, 2014.
