Income from land-property registries continues to increase in Punjab: JIMPA

A total income of 2143.62 crore rupees to the Punjab government in 6 months

As a result of providing transparent, hassle-free and corruption-free services by the Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Maan-led government, there has been an increase in the revenue from land and property registries to the Punjab government exchequer in the first 6 months of the financial year 2023-24 as compared to the previous year. 12 percent more money has come.

Punjab Revenue Minister Bram Shankar Gimpa has said that the Punjab government has received 24 percent more income from land-property registries in the month of August alone compared to the previous year, while this growth rate was 10 percent in the month of September. As against Rs 282.62 crore in August 2022, in August 2023, Rs 349.27 crore came into the government treasury. Similarly, the income of September 2023 was Rs 332.48 crore compared to Rs 303.38 crore in September 2022.

Gimpa said that from April 2023 to September 2023, the total income has been Rs 2143.62 crore. Last year in 2022, the same income was Rs 1908.87 crore. Thus, this increase is 12 percent. He said that Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann has given clear guidelines that corruption should not be tolerated at any level.

Even in the revenue department, if there is any problem in getting people to work at any level, Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann has issued a helpline number 8184900002 in this regard, on which a written complaint can be made on WhatsApp. NRIs can send their written complaints to 9464100168.

Gimpa said that a target of Rs 4700 crore revenue from registries has been set during the year 2023-24 and meaningful efforts are being made to achieve it. New appointments are being made in the revenue department and educated young men and women are being given employment. He said that all appointments are being made by Chief Minister Bhagwant Singh Mann on the basis of pure merit, which is showing good results. The newly appointed boys and girls are doing their work with full honesty, diligence and corruption free.

The revenue minister said that in the past, the common people were very unhappy with the working methods of the revenue department, but since one and a half years, people are getting smooth and good services. He appealed that people should support the government to further strengthen the treasury of the state and no bribe should be given to any officer/employee for any legitimate work and if any officer/employee of the revenue department asks for money in exchange for any work. Feel free to complain about it. The accused will not be spared under any circumstances.
