Land records of Delhi’s villages go online

[] Land records of almost all villages across the national capital have been digitised, as a part of efforts to bring transparency and weed out corruption, the Delhi government has announced

A senior officer of the Revenue Department, said that the land records of all villages of Delhi, except for villages in the north district, have been digitised and digitally signed from November 1, 2016. The move will ensure that citizens will no longer be required to visit the revenue offices, in order to get land records. There are about 356 villages in the national capital.

“The digitisation of land records, will ensure that there is no tampering of records by revenue field functionaries. Now, the digitally signed records of rights will be available 24×7 in the public domain and can be downloaded by citizens anywhere and anytime,” officer further said.

With this online system, the government will seek to bring to an end, the arduous and corruption-ridden process of getting hold of authentic land records for properties in Delhi’s villages. Through this online database, people can view a property’s land record and its legal status. People can then cross-check the land status, with maps that depict the ground situation. Any discrepancy can be pointed out immediately.
