The meeting lasted for 21 hours.”

The purpose of the conference was to see in the coming next six months what development works can be taken up and those that need to be completed through strict monitoring said the Chief Minister.

“Our main concern was what we can do about the land records updation and we have discussed in detail on the matter. Many people have got their land documents, some could not transfer land from father to son. Many lands have no records. In order to ease the problem, we have come up with a new mission. The purpose of the mission will be known at the appropriate time. It is to make it easier for people so that they do not need to go DC office or come to the Secretariat office. By an online portal public can do self-certification,” CM said.

Dr. Sarma also informed that discussion was taken up on the timely completion of Central government-aided schemes. The coordination of civil administration and law and order was also discussed. The police after arresting a drug-addicted person need to provide rehabilitation which is to be done by the civil administration.

“The developmental schemes of every department in presence of concerned ministers and high-level officials were properly discussed. I hope the session was a productive one,” CM Sarma said.

The next DC’s conference will be held at Tezpur after six months intervals, he announced.
