CHITRAL: There are complaints about large scale irregularities in the measurement and recording of land by the revenue department as the deadline to end the process approaches.
The residents have asked the Revenue Department to extend the deadline for land settlement for another month to save them from any possible embarrassment.
“The revenue officials have yet to complete the process and the deadline is going to expire on June 30. We appeal the provincial government to extend the deadline,” said Ihsanuddin.
Many people visit the revenue offices in connection with their cases and are worried about the fast approaching deadline.
A group of elders from Yarkhun valley said though their applications were being processed, the task may not be completed in the given time so the deadline should be extended.
“It takes us a day to reach Chitral city from Yarkhun valley. The government should extend the deadline so that we can properly follow our cases,” said one Asad Khan.
The elders said that many irregularities had been committed during the land measurement process.
Sources said that hundreds of cases were being processed in the Revenue Department in Chitral, which could not be settled before the expiry of the deadline.
The residents appealed to chief minister and officials concerned to extend the deadline.
