The district land record office is in complete disarray since important documents from the office have allegedly been disappeared. Due to irresponsive attitudes of employees of the office, the record room has become deplorable which has increased sufferings of common people.
A committee led by Sub-Registrar of Srinagar Belal Uddin Akand was formed to look into the matter.
According to record room sources, a copy of a document of Harpara Mouza under Srinagar upazila was made on January 24 this year by Gouranga Biswas. About a month later, it was noticed that page no. 69-71 of a volume no. 23 of a document of 1992 has been torn. But, nobody claimed responsibility.
Seeking anonymity, an employee of the record office said, “After completing their work record employees preserve the records in the district record room. But some employees sometimes keep those with them. They even keep the record books scattered. Besides government fees, some employees take extra charges against each copy.”
Record room Officer-in-Charge (Munshi) Mokhlesur Rahman said, “Steps have been taken to eradicate indiscipline and irregularities of the record room. A committee has been formed to look into the matter. Punishment will be given to the culprits so that no one dares to do it again.”
