Management of land records
In order to transform the revenue department the government has taken a number of steps so that the system becomes clean and transparent.
Recently the government has introduced land passbooks for the common people. Government has said that the DILRMP aims to modernize management of land records; minimize scope of land/property disputes; enhance transparency in the land records maintenance system and facilitate moving eventually towards guaranteed conclusive title to immovable properties in the J&K.
As part of the program implementation in Union Territory, 7.70 crore pages of revenue record and 55216 Musavi (maps) have been scanned, besides 3895 Ground Control Points have been established, and Web-based Enterprise Geo-Information System (GIS) has been developed.
Under ‘Apki Zameen Apki Nigrani’, land Pass Books are being made available in three languages- Hindi, Urdu and English so that people can easily get the required information.
The Revenue Department has been asked to evolve a mechanism of issuing revenue passbooks to the people, containing information on all their legal land possessions within one month for formal issuance by 26th January 2022. The process will be completed in the districts of Jammu and Srinagar by 31st March 2022 and in all other districts by 15th August 2022.
