Large number of mutation cases pending in Goa


 The number of mutation cases pending in Goa is high. In North Goa there are a total of 13,329 mutation cases pending, with the highest number in Bardez taluka. In South Goa district 7,497 cases of mutation are pending. 
Deputy chief minister Francis D'Souza revealed this information in a written reply to a question tabled by St Cruz MLA Atanasio Monserrate. 
In South Goa, Salcete taluka has 3,981 pending and Mormugao taluka has 892 cases pending. The government has not been able to bring down the number of pending mutation cases. 
Pendency of cases in mamlatdars have also risen as mamlatdars are loaded with other work and hence are not able to dispose of the cases. There is no time frame laid out within which mutation and other revenue cases are to be heard and disposed off. [TOI]
