A group of Dalits, who had been allocated free land in Usilampatti, petitioned the Collector’s office on Monday alleging delay and hindrances by officials in preventing them from getting subsidies for constructing houses in allocated land.
They said though they were provided patta in 1999, it took 17 years for them to get the land allocated in 2016. C.

Their applications were kept on hold.
