GUWAHATI, July 12 - Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has asked Chief Secretary VK Pipersenia to find out unused land available under different departments to create a land inventory for commercial activities to generate revenue. Sonowal pointed out that unutilised land could be used for commercial activities that would not only generate revenue, but also prevent land sharks from encroaching government land.
The Chief Minister said that utilising land for economic and productive activities would also help create employment opportunities in a big way. �A correct assessment of the immovable properties that remain unutilised must be carried out to put them for productive purposes that will help to generate revenue and also ease out the unemployment problem,� Sonowal said, while directing the Chief Secretary to pursue the matter aggressively.
The Chief Secretary said that a multi-disciplinary land inventory would be carried out and an evaluation report would be submitted to the Chief Minister, an official release stated.
