The Dharani portal helped farmers sell or buy land with great ease and in a few minutes of time. Finance Minister T Harish Rao surprised the staff and farmers by his sudden visit to the Tahsildar office at Sadasivapeta on Wednesday. He directly went to the chambers of Tahsildar Chakravarthy and saw for himself the transactions being processed through the Dharani portal.
The Minister later interacted with the farmers Sura Ananthamma, Vital Reddy, Ramulu, Sivaramulu and others. The farmers told him that they were able to complete the process within a few minutes. They need not go around the offices for their title deeds as was the custom in the past. They did not give any money to the staff nor the staff demanded any money from them.
Farmer Vital Reddy said registration and mutation are being completed within 20 minutes and they were happy with the facility.
