Survey free of disputes but harvest looks to be delayed
A land survey is currently underway for the 331 households in the gewog and till date there have been no disputes between land owners.
Gewog Gup Kinzang Jurmey said till now the cadastral survey didn’t face much issue over land disputes but there are some people who are unaware of the land rules and regulations.
The people in this group have been briefed and made aware about land rules and regulations.
The gewog has a land committee to solve the land disputes but till date the committee has not received any complaints or issues. The gup said the minor issues were solved at chiwog tshogpa level.
The Gewog residents are hopeful that no issues come up till the end of November, which is the targeted date to end the cadastral survey.
As of now the only inconvenience faced by the people is the survey’s timing which coincided with the maize and paddy harvest. “This made the farmers to stop activities and it might delay harvest of the crops,” said Gup Kinzang Jurmey.
