The building, constructed at a cost of Rs. 3.10 crore, has been completed in a record time of three years by the Land Army. The building has three teaching halls to provide training to about 300 trainees at a time. A 12-room hostel has also been set up to house 48 trainees.
Speaking on the occasion, the Minister of State for Revenue, Mallikarjun Nagappa, announced that the Government would release Rs. 5 crore to improve the infrastructure at the institute.
The institute would provide training to surveyors and other technical staff of the Survey Department working in all the 12 districts of North Karnataka, he said. The institute was the second of its kind in the State after the one in Mysore, which provided training to surveyors working in districts in South Karnataka. Even private surveyors would be trained at the institute, he said.
Mr. Kharge praised the Land Army for completing the project on time, and promised support from the Government to all the construction works taken up by the Land Army.
He said the good work done by the Land Army had been recognised by the Union Government and HUDCO, which had awarded a certificate to the former for the quality of the works taken up by it in the State. Mr. Kharge pointed out that the Land Army had constructed a multi-crore police training school complex in Gulbarga city and the imposing administrative office building of the Hyderabad-Karnataka Development Board here. Work was progressing on the Rangamandira building in the city, he said.
The Home Minister said the regional training institute would be a model training centre for the entire State as it would have all modern teaching aids and equipment.
The Minister for Public Works, N. Dharam Singh, stressed the need to complete micro filming of land records and village maps at the earliest to preserve old records. Welfare programmes launched by the State Government would succeed in achieving the desired result only when the officials implementing the programmes worked with commitment, he said.
Mr. Singh said poor and landless labourers were still being exploited by vested interests.
He called upon the Survey Department officials to play a pro-active role to protect the interests of the poor.
