Bhubaneswar, July 28 -- The Odisha Government on Wednesday issued guidelines to facilitate declaration of as many as 4000 hamlets in the State into new revenue villages.

The Revenue and Disaster Management Department of the Odisha government sent letters in this regard to all District Collectors on Wednesday.

"It has been brought to the notice of the Government that more than 3,500 proposals have been pending at district level since years for creation of new revenue villages. It is also ascertained that misinterpretation of the existing instructions at district level pertaining to reservation limit for Gochar and communal land has resulted in non-disposal of cases," read the letter.
