Slackness in implementation of DILRMP


The Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme is the scheme of the Department of Land Resources of the Union Ministry of Rural Development and the main aims of the Programme are to usher in a system of updated land records, automated and automatic mutation, integration between textual and spatial records, inter-connectivity between revenue and registration to replace the present deeds registration and presumptive title system with that of conclusive titling with title guarantee. The DILRMP has three major components computerization of land record, survey/re-survey and computerization of registration. In a major embarrassment for Stateauthorities, the Union Government has once again noticed slackness in the implementation of Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP) in Jammu and Kashmir and has directed the Revenue Department to immediately expedite physical progress on various components.
During recent review of the physical progress in the implementation of DILRMP, the Department of Land Resources of the Union Rural Development Ministry once again noticed slackness in the implementation of Programme in Jammu and Kashmir which has attained notoriety due to several land scams mainly because of ambiguities in the land records. As far as component of computerization of land records is concerned, the Union Ministry has observed, "Jammu and Kashmir has made no significant progress on this aspect till date and unless special attention is paid and intervention at the highest level is ensured there are remote chances of achieving objective behind this component of the DILRMP.
Similarly, no progress has been made on digitization of cadastral maps, which otherwise are required to show the boundaries of the sub-divisions of the land usually with the directions and lengths thereof and the areas of individual tracts compiled for the purpose of describing and recording ownership. It has also noticed no progress vis-a-vis integration of cadastral maps with Records of Right (RoR) and stressed the need for expediting this activity by the Revenue Department through the agency engaged for the task, sources further informed. It is pertinent to mention here that in the Phase-I of the DILRMP, Srinagar and Jammu districts have been taken up for implementation. In the 2nd phase 10 more districts and in the 3rd and final phase starting from April 2020 to March 2022, the remaining 10 districts will be covered. The entire process in the State has been targeted to be completed by 31st March, 2022.
