Land, building queries top RTI list

In the season of land scams, data for 2007-08 from the Karnataka Information Commission (KIC) show that 51% of the total RTI applications in the state - 30,432 of 59,772 - from all 33 departments, were filed with those of the revenue and urban development sections. Public enterprises and infrastructure development got just three and seven applications respectively during the same period. "Majority of the applications in these departments pertain to land sale deeds, khata conversions, mutation and record of rights copy. In the urban development department, which covers municipalities and corporations, many applications pertain to property disputes, illegal constructions and encroachments and building plan violations. The commission has asked the revenue department to digitise all land records in the state," H N Krishna, in-charge chief state information commissioner, told TOI.
