Revenue Dept. had always played a pivotal role since times immemorial: Himachal CM
Revenue department had always played a pivotal role since times immemorial and particularly after post Independence era adding that with passing times the role of revenue officers had increased manifold, this was stated by Himachal Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh.

While presiding over the annual State level convention of HP Revenue officers association in Shimla, he said that as of now, when there were 101 tehsils and 55 sub tehsils in the State, the role of revenue officers has become even more important. 

The Chief Minister announced vehicles for Tehsildars. Only selected Tehsildars who were performing higher responsibilities would be upgraded to the post of District Revenue Officers and that too in a phased manner, he added.

Virbhadra Singh said that demarcations and partitions etc needs to be speeded up. He said that despite appointments of revenue officers in tehsils and Sub tehsils, it takes ample time to complete demarcations, adding that he was telling all this because of the complaints he receives from the people, particularly in rural areas, while he was on tours.

He said that this had to be looked upon. 'Where there is a will there is a way', said the Chief Minister, adding that the process of demarcations and partitions should be speeded up particularly in rural areas to provide the much needed relief to the rural masses.

The Association also presented a cheque of Rs. 2.01 lakh to the Chief Minister towards the CM Relief Fund. The Chief Minister also released the Calendar of the Association.

Revenue and Law Minister Kaul Singh Thakur who also addressed the officers said that there was lot of expansion in revenue sector as lots sub tehsil and tehsil were opened during the regime of the present government.
