Network speed yet to be increased from 4 mbps to 12 mbps
The land record updation programme, considered one of the flagship programmes of the TRS government, continues to be hit by technical glitches that are delaying the officials’ efforts to update the records.
The government, a few days ago, had assured people of providing a user-friendly software after a series of complaints by the field-level staff to facilitate easy operation of the portal enabling the officials concerned to upload the data collected during the drive for updating land records without lapses.
However, within a couple of days after the assurance was given, the network servers faced technical issues and were shut down till Saturday posing numerous difficulties to the officials concerned in uploading the data. The servers, according to sources, were restored on Monday, but mandal revenue officers from different parts complained that the option for mutation of land records was not functioning as yet. Though staff uploading the data are able to access more options, they are reportedly finding it difficult to upload the data owing to the slow speed of the network.
“The portal is asking about the specific survey numbers repeatedly while uploading the inheritance details and this is turning out to be cumbersome,” a Telangana Tahsildars’ Association member told The Hindu adding that difficulties were also being faced in mandals like Ibrahimpatnam on the city outskirts where the portal is yet to show up options.
This was because of the delay in enhancing the speed of the network from existing 4 mbps to 12 mbps as assured by the government recently. Coupled with this are the issues relating to rectification of the errors in the photographs uploaded on the passbooks.
“Every time effort is made to rectify the mistakes in the photographs, the system is asking users to refresh their e-KYC details approaching the Mee Seva centres. This is proving to be tedious for both officials as well as the land owners,” an official said.
Representatives of the Telangana Tahsildars Association have accordingly decided to meet Chief Secretary S.K. Joshi in a day or two to represent the issues so that remedial measures are initiated to complete the process at the earliest.
