It has been observed that weaker sections of the society are vulnerable to lose their land to the land grabbers.
The victims file complaints of land grabbing or forceful occupation with the police or the Deputy Commissioner only in few cases praying for getting back their land.
In most cases, the victims who are poor, aged, widows, physically ill persons cannot physically resist such acts of financially sound land grabbers or pursue through legal complications for justice.
As such, the Government has constituted a district level co-ordination committee for Kamrup (Metro) district to facilitate and co-ordinate among the victims and police and district administration to facilitate quick disposal of such cases filed by victims.

The Committee shall ensure co-ordination between police and district administration to facilitate early disposal of cases.
It will also facilitate prompt submission of the requisite reports by the concerned revenue authorities and review pendency of the cases on monthly basis.
The committee shall also provide necessary guidance and assistance to the victims.
The committee will sit once in a month to review the petitions, the release added.
