Mapping the Progress: Government’s Update on 76% Land Map Digitization in India!

According to the Ministry of Rural Development, 76% of land maps in India have been digitized as of August 11, 2023. This is part of the Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP), which is a government initiative to digitize land records across the country.

The DILRMP was launched in 2008 and is being implemented by the Department of Land Resources (DoLR). The aim of the programme is to make land records accessible to all citizens and to reduce corruption in the land records system.

The DILRMP has four components:

  • Computerization of land records: This involves scanning and digitizing all land records, including property tax records, revenue records, and court records.
  • Preparation of a land records database: This involves creating a database of all land records, which will be accessible to all citizens.
  • Establishment of a land records information system: This involves setting up a system for managing and updating land records.
  • Capacity building: This involves training officials and citizens on how to use the land records system.

The DILRMP has been successful in digitizing land records in many states. However, there is still more work to be done. The government aims to digitize 100% of land records in the country by 2023.

The digitization of land records is a major step forward in the process of land reforms in India. It will make land records more accessible to all citizens and will help to reduce corruption in the land records system. This will have a positive impact on the economy and will help to improve the lives of millions of people.
