New system to measure land in minutes to be implemented soon
The Survey of India and the land records department have decided to implement continuous operating reference stations (CORS) using which land measurement can be accomplished in minutes along with producing an accurate map of the land.
“There are 77 CORS in Maharashtra. Of those, 12 will come up at government offices across Nashik division. They will not only help with the land measurement activity, but also with land acquisition, alignment of roads and other related activities in a swift, transparent and accurate manner,” said Milind Chavan, deputy director, land records.
The officer pointed out that the conventional measurement of land, which is carried out by a team of land surveyors, would take a minimum of two hours, even for a small piece of land.
