Hyderabad: Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has instructed concerned officers that they should ensure distribution of Rythu Bandu cheques and Pattadar pass books to each and every eligible farmer by June 2.
The Chief Minister said that the government has information that due to technical reasons at some places some farmers did not get either pattadar pass books or cheques.
He said that whatever might be the problems they should be overcome and by the time the new registration policy comes into effect on June 2, 2018 the distribution of pass books and cheque books shall be completed, come what may.
The Chief Minister has called for a meeting with Ministers and Collectors on Wednesday at 1 pm in Pragathi Bhavan to take stock of the progress of whole programme as of now, as well as to review and formulate a proper strategy for distributing Pass Books and Cheques to those who are yet to get.

“There is no other a priority program to the government than that of farmers welfare. That is the reason why our Government is allotting more funds to the agriculture sector.
Several expressed a sort of fear when we started implementing the Rythu Bandu Program with a budgetry provision of Rs 12,000 Crores. We however marched ahead with firm determination since this is a program benefiting the farmers directly.
The Farmers are extremely happy on receiving the Investment Support for their agriculture from the Government. They feel a sligh of relief for being freed from the dead trap. It is not a simple and easy thing to rectify and update land records in record time and issue pass books and cheques subsequently.
The Farmers are doubly happy since there is a clarity on the ownership of lands without spending a rupee towards it. I compliment the Revenue and Agriculture staff for successfully completing this herculean task. Government undertakes several programs for the benefit of the people and implement several schemes.
However, none of these schemes could get such a tremendous response as in the case of Investment Support Scheme. There is nationwide applaud for this program” said the CM.
“At some places for some reasons or other as well as non-linkage of Aadhar card in the case of some farmers, Cheques and Pass Books could not be distributed. It may be also a fact that few of the revenue officials were irresponsible to some extent.
It is also come to the notice of the Government that at some places, may be negligible, the rectification of Land records was not properly handled. At a time when government has been doing a lot for the benefit of farmers with great commitment, it is unfortunate that some of the officials are unable to discharge their duties in tune with the requirement.
It is high time that they change and jump into the action on war footing. Without leaving even a single farmer every eligible farmer shall get the pattadar pass books and cheques.
By the time the new registration policy comes into effect on June 2nd 2018 every farmer shall possess the new pattadar pass books and all the land records shall be updated” instructed the Chief Minister.
The Chief minister will be chairing an emergency review meeting on Wednesday the 23rd May at 1 pm in Pragathi Bhavan to take stock of the progress of Rythu Bandhu Cheque distribution and Pattadar pass book distribution as on Tuesday evening as well as to formulate a strategy to ensure that the whole program comes to a conclusion by 2nd June.
The meeting will discuss details of how many received the pass books? How many received cheques? How many are yet to receive? Why they are pending? When will the remaining get books and cheques? What are the issues and problems faced? as well as every other connected issue district wise.
A strategy will be formulated in the meeting to see that the program of distribution of cheques and pass books is concluded by 2nd June.
The meeting will also discuss on the farmers insurance scheme, Kanti Velugu (Eye Camps), State Formation Day celebrations and Panchayath Raj elections etc., (INN)
