Early Times Report

Srinagar, Aug 19 Three years since Jammu and Srinagar were taken up on pilot basis for digitalizing land records by the state government, transparent land records has remained a farce.
The government has already missed deadline to complete the digitization of land records in the twin capital cities and given the pace of the work, it may be unlikely to complete the project by 2019.
Sources said that the pilot project in Jammu and Srinagar was started by revenue department in 2015, however the sluggish approach of the previous PDP-BJP government could not complete the 'important project aimed to bring reforms and systematic changes in the revenue department'.
After missing the deadline the former Minister for Revenue, Abdul Rehman Veeri had informed the Legislative Assembly that the Phase-I was likely to be completed by ending March 2019.
However sources in the revenue department told Early Times that the pace of the work is very slow and it is unlikely to complete the project by 2019 and nobody knows when the Phase-II and Phase-III will be rolled out and completed.
People in the state are among the worst sufferers of corruption in accessing the land records. "People have to face the fraudulent mutations in violation of prescribed norms; tampering of revenue records with the ulterior motives of favouring un-deserving persons against monetary considerations; issuance of PRCs against monetary considerations," said one of the social activists.
Sources said that over the years thousands of kanals of state land has been encroached upon with the connivance of revenue functionaries. "The records are sometime mutilated or at other times deliberately distorted," said one of the retired officials of the revenue department.
The official data in the possession of Early Times reveals that against target of scanning 666.49 lakh revenue documents only 164.61 lakh revenue documents (58.77 lakh in Kashmir and 105.84 lakh in Jammu) have been scanned till December 2017.
Similarly, against target of digitization of 1500 current serving maps 1147 were digitized in Jammu division. Against target of installation of 7000 Ground Control Points 4594 were installed in 18 districts while as survey of 4604 Ground Control Points were conducted against target of 7000.
As against target of establishment of 217 Modern Record Rooms at Tehsil level 29 were taken up for construction under State Plan. Of these, 22 Modern Record Rooms were fully completed and one partially.
