Lucknow: In a major achievement for Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the land consolidation process has been executed with remarkable speed and efficiency in Uttar Pradesh for farmers’ benefit. Land consolidation has been carried out successfully in 22 villages across UP’s 18 districts within 2 months of the current fiscal year.

The Yogi government is consistently taking significant steps to benefit farmers. As part of this initiative, continuous campaigns are being conducted to resolve disputes related to field boundaries, integrate villages with development projects, provide the benefits of government schemes to the farmers, and free government land from encroachments.

Additionally, on Chief Minister Yogi’s directives, village courts (Gram Adalats) are being set up to expedite dispute resolution at the local level.

A shining example of the success of the land consolidation scheme is Dhema village in Jaunpur where the process had been stalled for 52 years. and where in the previous fiscal year, 2023-24, land consolidation took place in 781 villages.

Consolidation Commissioner GS Naveen stated that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had directed the consolidation of land to resolve farmers’ disputes transparently and efficiently.

He emphasized the need for campaigns and village courts to expedite the resolution process. As a result, land consolidation in 22 villages was completed within just two months this fiscal year. This included two villages each in Jaunpur, Maharajganj, Deoria, and Basti, and one village each in Sultanpur, Bareilly, Bulandshahr, Hardoi, Ballia, Auraiya, Firozabad, Gorakhpur, Sant Kabir Nagar, Kaushambi, Prayagraj, Ghazipur, Bijnor, and Lakhimpur Kheri. Notably, Dhema village in Jaunpur had a consolidation process that had been ongoing for 52 years.

In other villages, the process had been pending for 8 to 48 years. The department set a record by completing the consolidation in Lodhaura, Lakhimpur Kheri, within seven months. The residents applied for consolidation on August 21, 2023, and the department promptly completed the process within seven months.

The Consolidation Commissioner said, “In 14 villages across six districts, the long-pending consolidation process, delayed for 8 to 15 years due to farmers’ protests, has been completed. This includes six villages in Bijnor, 3 in Firozabad, and 2 in Hapur, along with villages in Auraiya, Kasganj, and Bulandshahr.

Notably, the consolidation in Bandi village, Mathura, which had been stalled by a High Court order since 1989, was finalized after 43 years. Similarly, the process initiated in 1969 in Malappuram Jagdishpur, Sultanpur, was completed this June after 55 years.”

Accordingly, a list of such villages is being prepared, and consolidation will commence soon in these areas. This initiative will not only expedite the consolidation process but also provide farmers with updated and accurate revenue records. These records will enable farmers to easily access and benefit from various government schemes, thereby improving their livelihoods.”
