Telangana CM instructs farmers to link Aadhaar details with land records

Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao on Friday instructed officials concerned stating that farmers, who do not link their Aadhaar details with their agriculture land records, will face the risk of their lands being declared benami.

The Chief Minister gave the warning after observing that many farmers were not coming forward to link their Aadhaar with that of land records, prepared by the officials during the recently concluded purification of land records.
