Dehradun: Observing the difficulties and irregularities in the management of lands in the state, the Uttarakhand government is going to set up a Land Management Commission which will look after management of the government lands besides checking any form of irregularities in its allocation.

While talking to the reporters here on Wednesday, Revenue and Irrigation Minister Yashpal Arya said, “The new commission for land management will not only prove to be beneficial for the better management of government lands but it will also give an actual idea about the revenue collected from the land allocation.”

The newly formed Congress government in Uttarakhand seems to be very vigilant in setting up commissions for various purposes in order to run the government better.

The state government has so far formed two commissions—KR Bhatti Commission to probe corruption during former BJP government and former DGP JS Pandey led Police Reforms Commission.

The another two commission that are to be added very soon are Land Management Commission and Restructuring Commission for the reorganization of administrative units in the state.
