Even as the government is moving towards conclusive title of land to reduce frauds in property deals and cut down on red-tapism and procedural delays for land owners and buyers, the prestigious e-mutation scheme launched by the state government seems to have run into rough weather. Officials, who are dealing with the process, said that there are several incidences of entries using the National Informatics Centre (NIC) software where the system has crashed and entries have gone missing.
Revenue officials, who had decided to go on strike earlier this month, had said that this was among the reasons for going on strike as they were facing immense problems with the software, and even as they were carrying out the process online, the fear of losing data persisted.
Revenue officials demanded that along with the online process, there should also be manual entries to be handed out.

The project, which is being undertaken by the settlement commissioner and director of land records, will see the database of the land records department, sub-registrar offices and tehsil offices being connected for real time data sharing and computerised seven by twelve extracts being given to land owners. The digitisation aims to ensure reduction in procedures, litigation and red-tapism and will bring about ease of doing business for industries. Maha-rashtra has around 2.11 crore holders of seven by twelve.
All talathis have been given laptops, who were supposed to issue computerised printouts of these extracts. However, many talathis are facing problems with the software and the same has been intimated to the state government. The state revenue department has taken cognizance of the issue and it would be taken up for hearing, said senior district administration officials.
