National Land Records Modernization Programme (NLRMP)

Background

Government of India implemented Centrally-Sponsored scheme - National Land Records Modernization Programme (NLRMP) by merging two existing centrally sponsored schemes: Computerization of Land Records (CLR) and Strengthening of Revenue Administration and Updating of Land Records (SRA&ULR) in the Department of Land Resources (DoLR), Ministry of Rural Development.

Brief Details or Summary

Maharashtra has been pioneer in implementation of NLRMP. Various components under NLRMP are being implemented in various modes – pilot basis or state wide. Many projects have been successfully implemented in pilot locations and now are on the verge of state wide rollout. Comprehensive land records modernization and management system is proposed under programme called "eMAHABHOOMI" by the state. Different components of eMahabhoomi are elaborated as follows.

Present Status

Currently most of the projects have been rolled out either in pilot basis or state wide. All projects which have been rolled out pilot mode are ready for state-wide rollout in either FY 2012-13 or FY2013-14.

Future Plan

The major task to be carried out in the future for implementation of NLRMP in the entire state are as follows:
  • Initiate project rollout from pilot mode to state-wide mode for remaining components of NLRMP
  • Keep all applications updated with the latest standards and guidelines released by Government of India
  • Integrate e-Mojani application with GRAS
  • Initiate UID seeding in existing land records data
  • Keep all relevant land records data updated through various applications and technology
  • GIS based solutions for cadastral data
  • Provide all land records data in dematerialized format to citizens at the nearest point of service delivery

Cost savings

The total cost of ownership will reduce drastically for the citizens as most of the required land records data will be available to the citizens at very convenient and nearby locations. This will also help to increase the throughput of the departmentofficials as IT will help in reducing the time required for manual work.

For e.g. In an earlier situation, a citizen would need to go to the land records office in his taluka to request for a survey application. With the new system in place and future integrations with payment gateway, the citizen will be able to fill up the form and complete all formalities online. This will not only save and money for the citizen but will also free the department officials from investing time for catering to that citizen. This will lead to huge cost savings.
