Damauli, April 17

Squatters living in ward number 1, 11 and 13 of Suklagandaki Municipality in Tanahun for the last 14 years have demanded that the authorities expedite the process of registering land in their names.

A team led by the coordinators of concerned ward public forums today met Chief District Officer Purusottom Kunwar and District Land Revenue Officer Diwakar Poudel demanding that they expedite the land registration process.

Krishna Regmi, a ward forum coordinator, said the concerned authority should expedite the process as per Nepal Gazette. “We will hit the streets if our demand is not met,” he warned.

Secretary Bhadra Bahadur Khatri of registration coordination committee, said, “Land registration process should begin by measuring the lands and categorising them.”

Khatri accused revenue officer Poudel of turning a deaf ear although CDO Kunwar was quite positive towards their demand.
