Land Records

Land Records in India have evolved over centuries. The Land revenue was the main source of revenue for Indian rulers and then for British. The present form of preparation and maintenance of Land Records originated during Mughal period.

It is very difficult for a common man to understand their own records of rights. Corruption and lack of transparency are other issues associated with Land Records in India. Government of India realized these problems and started National Land Records Modernization Program (NLRMP) with the aim to standardize and computerize all land records in India in a phased manner. Under NLRMP all land records and related services are being made online. Few states have already computerized their land records while some are in the process.

The National Land Records Modernization Program (NLRMP) is launched by Government of India in August 2008, aimed 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 titles to immovable properties in the country. The major components of the program are computerization of all land records including mutations, digitization of maps and integration of textual and spatial data, survey/re-survey and update of all survey and settlement records including creation of original cadastral records wherever necessary, computerization of registration and its integration with the land records maintenance system, development of core Geospatial Information System (GIS) and capacity building.

Department of Revenue and Land Reforms of Jharkhand has developed the MIS portal to digitize land records system in Jharkhand. One of the major objectives of this website is to provide Jharkhand Land Record (Khesra, Khata) details online to the citizen.
