The official added that objections received from the people should be heard by a high-powered committee that would be set up at the tehsil level. “Objections regarding mistakes in the name and year and the area of encroachment are likely to come up. The committee at the tehsil level will hear all the objections… Later, people would be asked to pay regularisation fee, following which, their houses would be regularised.”
