Digital India Land Record Modernization Programme [dilrmp]

Digital India Land Record Modernization Programme [DILRMP]


The Land Reforms (LR) Division was carrying out two Centrally Sponsored Schemes, namely the Computerization of Land Records (CLR) and Strengthening of Revenue Administration and Updating of Land Records and (SRA&ULR). The Cabinet later authorized the integration of these programmes into the Digital India Land Records Modernization Program (DILRMP) on August 21, 2008.


The primary objectives of the DILRMP are to introduce an updated land records system, automated and automatic mutation, integration of textual and spatial records, interconnectedness between revenue and registration, and replacement of the current deeds registration and presumptive title system with conclusive titling with title guarantee.


The DILRMP consists of three main parts.
•    Digitization or Computerization of Land records
•    Survey/re-survey
•    Computerization of Registration

Programme Execution:

The Department of Land Resources, Government of India, will provide financial and technical support for the program's implementation with the State Governments/UT Administrations. The district will be used as the implementation unit, where all programme activities would come together.

Advantages For Citizens:

The DILRMP is anticipated to offer the citizen one or more of the following benefits:
1.    The public will have access to real-time land ownership records.
2.    Property owners will have free access to their records without any damage to the confidentiality of the information because the records will be posted on websites with appropriate security IDs.
3.    Free access to the information will lessen interactions between the public and government officials, which will decrease harassment and extortion.
4.    By delivering services through public-private partnerships (PPPs), the government will interact with citizens less frequently while also improving convenience.
5.    Reduced interaction with the Registration machinery will also result from the elimination of stamp papers and the payment of stamp duty and registration fees through banks, etc.

6.    The time required to get RoRs and other documents will be significantly decreased with the use of IT interlinkages.
7.    The citizen will save time and effort by using the single-window service or the web-enabled "anytime-anywhere”, access to receive RoRs, etc.
8.    The breadth of fraudulent real estate transactions will be greatly reduced by automatic and automated mutations.
9.    Additionally, conclusive titling will drastically reduce litigation.
10.    These records will not be altered.
11.    This technique will enable electronic links to financial facilities.
12.    The public will have access to market value data on the website.
13.    Computers will make certificates based on land data (such as residence, caste, income, etc.) available to citizens.
14.    Based on the statistics, information on eligibility for government programmes will be available.
15.    It will be made easier to issue land passbooks with the necessary information.
The Department has also conducted the following projects:

1. National Generic Document Registration System (NGDRS):

Under the general auspices of the Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP), a central sector scheme to include requirements of all the States, the Department developed and field-tested, National Generic Document Registration System (NGDRS) through NIC/NICSI in order to provide, one Nation one software for registration of documents & properties to "empower citizens." The same has been launched/under implementation in 10 states/Union Territories, including Andaman & Nicobar Is.

Benefits include: 

1.    Less land conflicts and a check on fraudulent activity 
2.    Reduced procedure and time for registering documents at the Sub-Registrar level 
According to reports from two state administrations, the number of processes and the amount of time required to register documents has decreased from 9 to 6, and from 3 to 4 hours to 15-20 minutes, respectively 
3.    It is feasible to present a document for registration anywhere within a concurrent jurisdiction 
4.    Data shared and used by significant government authorities/stakeholders like the Revenue Department (Income Tax) with a data policy and standards in place 
5.    Data shared and used by important government authorities/stakeholders like the Financial Services Authority (FSA) with a data policy and standards in place; and external system integrations can be provided as needed (i.e. eSign, eKYC, Payment Gateways, PAN Verification, ROR to fetch party names for data standardization)
The NGDRS software is anticipated to boost the nation's standing in the ease of doing business in a global forum and to make life easier for the populace.

2. Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN)

Each land parcel will have an alphanumeric unique ID with a total of 14 digits under the Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) System. The Electronic Commerce Code Management Association (ECCMA) standard and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard compliance of the Unique IDs based on Geo reference coordinate of the vertices of the parcel would give compatibility so that all states can adopt it easily. 
ULPIN's accurate land statistics and accounting will aid in the creation of a land bank and a system for managing integrated land information (ILIMS). A link between all property transactions is established, citizen services for land records are delivered through a single window, land records data is shared across departments, financial institutions, and all stakeholders, and standardization at the data and application levels would result in effective integration and interoperability across departments.
In 11 States—Bihar, Haryana, Jharkhand, Odisha, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Sikkim, Andhra Pradesh, and Goa—the pilot test was successfully completed.
