The recently held intensive household survey had helped officials to get information regarding the socio-economic conditions of the poor castes among backward communities (BCs). Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao had already announced that STs will be given three acres of land.
The government is ready to purchase private lands, if there is any shortage of government land for distribution among poor BCs. Minister for forest and environment Jogu Ramanna told Deccan Chronicle that he and his colleagues urged KCR to give land to washermen, potters, barbers and others, all belonging to BCs. The state will distribute 3 acres land to the landless poor among STs after March 31 2015.
