The task of feeding land records in computers and putting them online, has been going on for the last 20-25 years but could not be achieved till now, he said. The revenue minister also set a target, for all districts of the division to complete computerisation work and uploading of land records by June 30.
Building permit process to move online
In a related development, the government is all set to do away with the manual process for obtaining construction permits, in the national capital by next month, making the entire system online as part of its plan to provide hassle-free public services delivery mechanism.
New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) will stop accepting manual applications for building permits by May 15, while three other civic bodies of Delhi will adopt the system by the end of May.
NDMC chairman Naresh Kumar and commissioner of South Delhi Municipal Corporation Punit Goel informed about this initiative, while making a presentation at a workshop on ‘Ease of Doing Business for Construction Permits in Delhi’.

Mumbai, will also accept only digital applications for construction works from October 2.
“From October 2, 2016, all construction permits in Delhi and Mumbai would be only through online mechanism. There will be no man-to-man contact,” union urban development minister, M Venkaiah Naidu said, on the sidelines of the workshop.
Naidu expressed concern over what he called the ‘paradox’ of India being the fastest growing economy of the world, but perceived to be the most difficult place to do business and invest in.
Naidu said the simplified online application and sanction systems being introduced in Delhi and Mumbai, would be implemented in all cities and towns, in a phased manner.
