NASHIK: With a view to bring transparency and speed in the work of the revenue department and make the work of it more people-oriented and also help in settling the pending works, Divisional Commissioner Radhakrishna Game yesterday ordered inspection of the records in 2063 Talathi offices in Nashik division. The Divisional Commissioner has instructed to conduct a thorough inspection of Talathi files in all the five districts of Nashik Revenue Department.
The Revenue Department is the backbone of the administration and the general public is always in touch with the Talathi office which is responsible for handling and updating all types of land related records and documents. The Talathi record contains a number of records such as 7/12 extracts of ordinary farmers, changes, government land rewards and records of Vatan lands.
