IN A major reformative step, the Delhi government’s revenue department has digitised land records of 206 revenue villages and 22 sub-divisions.
According to officials, the process of putting land records online — to ensure more transparency in buying and selling of property — has begun in the city’s rural areas. With the records being digitised, anyone who is planning to buy property in these revenue villages no longer have to pay numerous visits to the office of the sub-registrar to physically verify documents.
Records of urban villages, however, are yet to be digitised, said officials. However, downloading records will take another 15 days. “Our records are being digitally signed. The process will take 15 days. After that, anyone can download the documents after paying a minimal fee,” said Rupesh Thakur, DC (IT).

In addition to this, a ‘no objection’ certificate from the revenue department can also be obtained online. With digitisation coming into place, officials said buyers no longer have to fill up an application to see the records of a particular property. Instead, they can visit the revenue department’s website and check the ownership and status of properties.
“This will give a legal authentication to the documents as it is information provided by the government. The legal status of ownership of a property can also be checked by prospective buyers. The whole process aims at safeguarding buyers against transactions by unscrupulous elements, apart from ease of getting the papers verified,” said an official.
In April last year, land records of 78,000 properties of southwest district were digitised and made available online for public.
