Madhya Pradesh is the second-biggest province of India. As the name suggests, Madhya implies the inside and Pradesh mean district. This domain of India which covers 3,08,000 sq.km size in the area lies in the centre of India and is famously called the 'heart of India'. It is surrounded by 5 states of India - Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Gujarat and Rajasthan.
Madhya Pradesh lies over a transitional zone between the Indo-Gangetic Plain in the north and the Deccan level in the south. Its physiography is described by low slopes, broad levels, and stream valleys and the rise ranges from 300 to 3,900 feet.
With such a huge and broadened database of the state and a population with more than 7,25,97,565, it becomes a very complicated issue to deal with land records. These records are mostly physical records determined by the revenue department from a land registry of a particular district. To fetch such data, a landowner has to run from department to department and burn through valuable time and money for a task that should not be so difficult.
This manual method to identify land titles of a particular area is usually time-consuming and cost-ineffective process as it highly relies on the official or agents. Hence it is very important to have a single-window to get all the required information in a consolidated form. Such a digitised ecosystem with the availability of land records and property titles, in short, time would make it simple to download and save documents as per own convenience.
For such a facility in the field of real-estate REAL has been a great help. It is a pioneer in initiating a drive to digitise land records and create a centralised database for land ownership across India. REAL as an analytical platform fetches geographical and land ownership particulars from the government to the consumers as per the requirement.
Land records Madhya Pradesh (mp bhulekh) comprise of a digitised database of land records stored as per survey number (khasra number) and area wise. Such a document contains detailed information about nearby locations such as roadways, water bodies, Geographical Information (latitude & longitude), Elevation, Satellite Map of survey nos, 7/12 and so on. It also provides with important document Khasra Khatauni MP -the Record of Rights (ROR). This helps the users to analyse, plan and strategize land-related queries.
With such software of a database, it is of great advantage to find land details of a particular area without physically visiting the place, this will eventually lower the rate of frauds and improve the transaction of finance, especially for farmers and prospective homebuyers and land-owners.
The digitalisation of land records acts as a catalyst for buying and selling of a property. This not only benefits the retailers but is also of great advantage for bankers and industrialists. Direct access to digitized Khasra Naksha MP will altogether improve the title confirmation process over the conventional economy. While farmers and rural households will, perhaps, be the biggest beneficiaries in terms of ease of access to credit, this can also facilitate a much smoother process for other landowners, such as prospective home-buyers in semi-urban and urban areas.
Recently, the Digital India Land Records Modernisation Programme (DILRMP) has also ensured that not only will all manual, physical documents be computerised and digitalised in a consolidated form. With such an initiative from the private and public sector, one can say India is getting digitalised.
