New landowners increasing in Kathmandu
Despite dust, drinking water scarcity and dogging price hike, Kathmandu still continues to lure more people from across the country in search of their dream.
In the current fiscal year 2013-14, the only metropolis of the country has added some 1,074 new land owners, according to the records of Dillibazar Land Revenue Office that looks into only one section of the Kathmandu metropolis.
The office has also mobilised Rs 536.77 million in the current fiscal year 201-14, the office informed, adding that the office provides services to around 500 service seekers everyday in an average.
Likewise, Lalitpur Land Revenue Office also mobilised Rs 1.36 million revenue in the current fiscal year.
Inspecting both the offices on Friday, secretary at the Office of the Prime Minister Krishna Hari Banskota asked the offices to provide efficient services to the service seekers, and provide compensation, if the employees delay their work.
After complaints from the people that these offices do not provide service efficiently, a committee has been formed under Baskota to monitor these offices.
Advising the employees to restrict the middlemen from entering the offices, he asked the employees to maintain professional ethics, not get involved in corruption and make the service seekers feel that they are taken well care. "Though Nepal has bettered in corruption perception report and jumped up to 117th position this year from last year's 139th the role of government employees must be aware of their duty," he added.
