With computerisation of land records being made one of the priority areas of the revenue department by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Revenue Minister Manish Sisodia,the department is developing a single-window electronic system to offer all its services online.

The “e-districts”,officials said,would do away with procedural delays and allow the common man to avail of revenue department services online,and get certificates from the department with digital signatures via email.

If the approvals are given on time,officials said the “e-district” plan would be ready in the next six months and help the department spearhead the digitisation process and provide an online platform for the various services offered by all the other departments of the Delhi government.

“It will be a single-window system that would simplify the processes and ease things for the common man,who would not just be able to apply online,but also get the documents with digital signatures,” an official said.

“Computerisation of land records has been completed in Najafgarh zone. Implementing this in the rest of the city would take some time as there is a massive manpower crunch,” Principal Secretary (Revenue) Dharampal said.
