Pernem: The Advocates Association of Pernem on Thursday met the North Goa Collector and demanded that the posts of Mamlatdar II and III – which were lying vacant for over two years be filled immediately. 

The lawyers charged that thousands of cases filed before the Revenue Court were paralysed in the absence of officials in the chair. 

“For the last two years, the chairs of Mamlatdar II and III at the Pernem Mamlatdar’s office were lying vacant after the previous officials were transferred, and never replaced,” Adv Murari Parab, president of Advocates Association Pernem said.

“Some files are pending for a very long time due to the non-appointment of these Joint Mamlatdars and the North Collector has assured to look into the matter," Parab added.

Adv Prasad Shahapurkar said, “Tenancy, mundkarial and mutation cases besides verification of affidavits filed before the Mamlatdar’s office have been virtually paralysed in the absence of these officials to handle the matter.

Mutation cases filed by the common man take years to get cleared while the people with high-profile contacts get their work done within no time. A proper process needs to be followed as per the law.”
