Settlement Kanungo Association Celebrated 100 Years of Establishment


News Desk, News Nation 360 : So far and so long one can re-collect or remember from the History, the terms Survey, Settlement, Revenue, Khatian (Parcha) etc. had been introduced from the reign of Pathan Samrat Sher Shaw and those were deeply extended and/or elaborated during the reign of the great Mughal Samrat AKBAR, mainly by his Revenue Minister, the great TODARMAL. Though in the British period importance was given mainly to the collection of Revenue yet the role of Kanungo was very vital and important. Since then, Kanungos have been discharging the functions of Technical, Administrative, Executive and Judicial ones. They were treated as Astt-Collector of the District. In the year 1922, the then government gave the recognition of the Settlement Kanungo Association to establish its prestige and position in society and government. Now 2022 era is running i.e. Settlement Kanungo Association is going to complete 100 years. On this glorious occasion,

they also published a legendary book titled by 'Settlement Kanungo Samitike Satabarsher Aloke Phiredekha' written by about 63 personalities, related to this department in so many Land Reforms works in the past and at present. To remember as well as to celebrate the said occasion, more than 400 officers from different districts of West Bengal (once performed as Kanungo, now W.B.S.L.R.S. gr-l), both retired and in-service officers like I.A.S., I.P.S., W.B.C.S. (Exe-Jud), officers of different superior posts of Land Reforms Department and so many other officers of so many sectors have been assembled to celebrate the Centenary occasion in Kolkata. In this centenary celebration, they expect the govt. will continue and will take all types of measures and programmes and policies so that real Land Reforms are performed which are most essential for the greater benefit of the people, society and the country. They believe so long relationship and interest of the individual public will exist with the land and property, there is no other alternative, but to take all possible steps and attempts to create and establish real Land Reforms.
