In a major push towards the reforms in the Jammu and Kashmir Revenue department, various steps in checking manipulation of land record and reducing public interface with the department officials are being taken.

The revenue department is undergoing major reforms under the guidance of Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha. These major reforms and steps will help in promoting efficient services.

In order to stop the manipulation of land record, implementation of Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP) UT administration has been in progress to provide services to the common people in the most transparent manner.

This programme brings out the transparency by providing entire land record of Jammu and Srinagar districts online on the Land Records Information System developed by the Revenue Department. By using this portal, people can get copies of land record in Hindi, Urdu and English languages. Moreover, digitization process of remaining 18 districts will begin soon.

Commissioner/Secretary to the government, Revenue Department Vijay Kumar Bidhuri said that they are working on different options for digitization of land record of remaining 18 districts and final decision will be taken shortly so that within next few months land record of entire Union Territory is available on the Land Records Information System for easy access by the public.

Also, SMS services will be started soon to all the owners of land in any Khasra number whenever anyone of them carries out property transaction. Commissioner Secretary informed that a team is working in this direction in close coordination with the National Informatics Centre (NIC) and service will be started soon.

Regarding the encroachments of State land, the Commissioner Secretary said that targets have been given to all the Deputy Commissioners across the Union Territory for retrieval of land and submission of monthly reports for critical analysis.
