In Kathaura village of Amethi District, 14 families belonging to Mangta community are waiting for the titles of the land which was promised to them by the government a decade ago. In 2007, District administration ordered to allot one bigha land to 14 landless families. However, local revenue officer allotted only fractions (55 Biswa) of the promised land. Farmers complained about the revenue official but nothing happened. While the Land was recorded in government records on the name of the farmers, they are still waiting to get the full possession of the promised land. Regarding this farmers have also complained to the SubDistrict Magistrate of the region.
