Revenue Department

Revenue Administration has historically been the primary responsibility of District Administration. This involves collection and fixing of land revenue, registration, mutation and overall management in regard to land- private and public. Besides the revenue branch of the Deputy Commissioner's office, which is looked after by Assistant Commissioner (Revenue), there are Seven (4) outlying Revenue Circles (Tehsils) in the district, supervised by Tehsildars, Tehsildars are responsible for collecting land revenue (Khazna) from land owners (pattadars). All the Tehsildars and also the settlement officer are required to submit 'doul' (demand of revenue) to DC, and after his approval, Tehsildars are to collect revenue as per the demand.
