Telangana to bring key changes in land record administration
The Telangana government has announced that it will introduce a system that aims at facilitating immediate changes in land records, whenever any transactions take place, thus, avoiding delays in the process.
“The core banking network system would be introduced. Entries and changes would be done immediately in the passbooks of (land) buyers and sellers. We are arranging high capacity computers and servers for this,” said chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, in a meeting with district collectors.
The changes would be updated in a proposed website, named ‘Dharani’, according to a state government release. Rao said ‘revolutionary changes’ would be initiated in the administration of land records, from March 12, 2018.
“Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao said that from March 11, 2018, Pattadar (land ownership) passbooks should be distributed in all the villages,” the release quoted the CM as saying at the meeting.
The Pattadar passbooks would be distributed, in view of the land records updation and ‘purification’ (rectification) exercise, recently carried out in the state. Rao said 93 per cent of land was found to be without any disputes (in the land records updation programme). The number of village panchayats is also likely to increase by another 4,000, from the present 8,684, the chief minister said.
