Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP)

Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP)

Context:

A booklet on “Best Practices in Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP)” has been released by the Union Ministry of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj.

Details:

  • The book provides information about various ‘good practices’ followed in land records modernization across national policy framework and in nine study states namely Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, etc. 
  • It also covers the gaps in the implementation of different processes (registration, mutation, survey, settlement, land acquisition), technological initiatives, and legal and institutional aspects.  

Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP): 

  • In 2008, the government had merged two Centrally Sponsored Schemes naming Computerisation of Land Records (CLR) and Strengthening of Revenue Administration & Updating of Land Records into a modified Scheme named Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP).
  • It is an initiative of the Department of Land Resources (DoLR), Ministry of Rural Development. 
  • The State Governments/UT Administrations will implement the program with financial and technical support from the Department of Land Resources, Government of India.
    • The district will be taken as the unit of implementation, where all activities under the program will converge.

Key objectives:

  • Updated land records, Automated and automatic mutation, 
  • Integration between textual and spatial records, 
  • Inter-connectivity between revenue and registration, 
  • To replace the present deeds registration and presumptive title system with that of conclusive titling with title guarantee.

The DILRMP has 3 components:

  • Computerization of land record
  • Survey/re-survey
  • Computerization of Registration.

Benefits to land modernization:

  • Property owners will have free access to their records without any compromise in regard to the confidentiality of the information. Real-time land ownership records will be available to the citizen
  • Free accessibility to the records will reduce interface between the citizen and the Government functionaries, thereby reducing rent-seeking and harassment.
  • Land modernization will permit e-linkages to credit facilities.
  • Citizens will get market value information on the website.
  • Certificates based on land data (e.g., domicile, caste, income, etc.) will be available to the citizen through computers.
  • Information on eligibility for Government programs will be available, based on the data.

Achievements of DILRMP:

  • Computerization of Land Records has been completed (more than 90%) in 23 States/ UTs and substantial progress has been achieved in 11 States/ UTs.
  • Digitization of Cadastral Maps has been completed (more than 90%) in 19 States/ UTs and substantial progress has been achieved in 9 States/ UTs.
