LAND REVENUE, NATURAL DISASTER AND REHABILITATION
The Department of Land Revenue is one of the oldest department and offices of Assam. It is closely associated with the public as it primarily deals with issues like land ownership, revenue, taxes, land succession, flood, erosion etc and hence the Congress Government in order to mobilize the department has taken up various schemes.
As per last elections manifesto, Congress Government, in the last 5 years, has given land to 11,666 landless people and a total of 3,734 tea and ex-tea workers were provided with land ownership rights.
