Land Minister Shamsur Rahman Sherif on Thursday directed the officials concerned to allocate agricultural khas land among real landless farmers.
“The Duplicate Carbon Receipt (DCR) of agricultural khas land must be issued for the genuine land less framers,” he said.
The minister came up with the direction while speaking at the 34th meeting of the National Agricultural Khas Land Management Executive Committee at his ministry.
Sherif also asked the officials to provide the landless framers with (DCR) of the khas land after carrying out investigations through field visits.
He said some farmers get affected both financially and mentally as a section of land grabbers try to occupy their croplands during harvesting season misusing the DCR.
To check it, the meeting decided that the DCR of the khas land will be issued after the land officials’ report on the land condition through field visits.
The meeting also decided that if any landless farmer cultivates any khas land that farmers must be provide with the DCR.
