Allowing collectors to decide on land conversions sans inputs is illegal: NGO

Rainbow Warriors, an organisation of environmental activists, which has filed its objections to the proposed amendments to Goa Land Revenue (conversion of use of land and non-agricultural assessment) Rules, 1969, has, among other aspects, also taken exception to a proposal allowing the collector to decide on an application if the town and country planning (TCP) department, forest department, directorate of survey and land records and mamlatdar fail to submit their report/NOC/recommendation within a period of 20 days.
