Consolidated agricultural holdings and round accounts are coming in the way of consolidation
Contract farming plans are not ending due to scattered fields
The government will conduct 3D mapping for the consolidation of agricultural land in the mountainous districts of Uttarakhand. This will allow knowing the actual status of the Khasra number of agricultural land. The revenue department is preparing a 3D map through the Survey of India. The government’s plan for contract farming is also not going up due to a lack of consolidation in the mountains. Consolidation has not yet been done in five villages of the Pauri district. Aerial surveys will be conducted in these villages through drones.
Due to scattered agricultural holdings in the mountainous areas, the farmers have to work harder and the profits from farming are decreasing. The government has legally recognized partial and voluntary consolidation for the mountains. But not a single village has been consolidated in the hilly areas so far. The government has introduced partial and voluntary consolidation from five villages of the Pauri district.
These include Khairassan, the village of Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat, Panchur, the village of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, and Auni, the village of Agriculture Minister Subodh Uniyal, and two other villages. Data on agricultural land records have been prepared in these villages. Now aerial surveys will be done by drones.
Due to a lack of land settlement in the state, the biggest problem is facing consolidation. There are many stakeholders in the round account of the same land, but they do not know where their land is. Now the government will do 3D mapping in the mountainous regions through Survey of India to promote consolidation.
Compulsory consolidation in 158 villages of Haridwar and Udham Singh Nagar
The compulsory consolidation process is going on in Haridwar and Udham Singh Nagar district. Which includes 108 villages in Haridwar and 50 villages in Udham Singh Nagar. While consolidation is being done in only five villages of Pauri district. It is difficult to consolidate in the mountains compared to the plain districts.
A 3D map will be prepared through Survey of India for consolidation in hilly areas. This will facilitate consolidation by revealing the actual situation of round accounts and scattered agricultural holdings in the mountains.
