We the residents of Panjgam village of Tehsil Awentipora in Pulwama District want to convey to the concerned authorities that some unscrupulous persons are taking unfair advantage of this pandemic by filling the paddy fields in our area.
The land is classified as “Abiawal” and Section 133 A of land revenue act states that agricultural land on which paddy, vegetation or saffron has been grown for two years cannot be utilized for any purpose unless written permission is obtained from the revenue minister. However, some people are brazenly committing this illegal act with revenue authorities acting as mute spectators.
We fear that if the process continues at the same pace for next- three year we would be left with no paddy land. Kindly look into the matter.
