PATNA: Land own­ers across Bi­har who have been served no­tices by the In­come Tax depart­ment for not pay­ing tax against cap­i­tal gains for con­vert­ing their land to high rise build­ings are headed for fur­ther trou­ble. The IT depart­ment has as­sessed the land agree­ments and has si­mul­ta­ne­ously started the process of is­su­ing or­ders, im­ply­ing the land own­ers will have to pay hefty tax against their prop­er­ties.

RANCHI: Chief min­is­ter Raghubar Das on Fri­day held meet­ing with the cen­tral teams that ar­rived in Jhark­hand to as­sess dam­ages caused by drought in 129 blocks. The CM urged the team mem­bers to sub­mit the re­port at the ear­li­est af­ter in­spect­ing the drought af­fected ar­eas.

“Timely sub­mis­sion of re­port would help farm­ers to get re­lief on time,” CM told the team mem­bers.

Aatish Chan­dra, the joint sec­re­tary of the Union min­istry of agri­cul­ture co­op­er­a­tion and farm­ers wel­fare, who is lead­ing the three cen­tral teams, said they re­ceived the state mem­o­ran­dum on time and it was in line with the stan­dards of drought man­ual. “We will sub­mit the re­port as soon as pos­si­ble af­ter the as­sess­ment in to­tal­ity,” he told CM.

Das also di­rected the chief sec­re­tary Sud­hir Tri­pathi to carry out ad­vance plan­ning on mi­cro level so that farm­ers do not face any dif­fi­cul­ties in the next crop.

Tri­pathi said cen­tral as­sis­tance of Rs 818.98 crores is ex­pected and it would be uti­lized on farm­ers for fi­nan­cial help, sub­sidy, fod­der, medicine, wa­ter sup­ply and fish­ery seed farm. Apart from this, drink­ing wa­ter and san­i­ta­tion, health and wa­ter re­source de­part­ments would carry out sep­a­rate works for the ben­e­fits of farm­ers.

Three cen­tral teams, each com­pris­ing three mem­bers, vis­ited three dis­tricts-Palamu, Ko­derma and Pakur on Fri­day and they would visit Godda, Giridih and Garhwa on Satur­day, agri­cul­ture depart­ment of­fi­cials said.

The teams are sched­uled to re­turn to Delhi on Sun­day evening. On Novem­ber 18, the state gov­ern­ment, un­der the Cen­tre’s man­ual of drought man­age­ment, no­ti­fied 93 blocks se­verely af­fected and 36 blocks in 18 dis­tricts as mod­er­ately af­fected by drought.
