New Delhi: The Delhi government has digitised the land records of 192 villages out of 224 in the capital. According to the revenue department, the process for computerisation of land records in the remaining villages was underway, which will be completed soon.

The digitisation move is aimed at ensuring transparency in the system and also to help citizens from visiting the revenue offices to get land records.

In a written reply to a question asked by AAP legislator Mohammad Ishraque in the Delhi Assembly, Delhi revenue minister Kailash Gahlot said several reasons, including urbanisation of some villages are hampering computerisation of land records of 32 villages. This will be resolved soon.

The minister, however,  said that no timeline has been fixed for digitisation of land record of other villages.

Under the computerised system, the digitally signed records of rights is available 24x7 in public domain and can be downloaded anywhere.

Through this online database, citizens look into the property land record and its legal status. They can cross-check the land status through the maps put up showing the ground situation and any discrepancy can be pointed out immediately.
