The Government of Telangana is set to digitise all the land records in the state except Nizamabad and Hyderabad districts. It will be part of the Centrally sponsored projects and the project cost is Rs. 150 crore out of which Rs. 120 crore will be funded by the Central government.
The land records in Medak, Mahabubnagar, Ranga Reddy, Nalgonda, Adilbad, Karimnagar, Khammam, Warangal districts will be digitised as part of the project. The project is named as National Land Records Management Project.
The project includes surveying lands, updating records and digitising the records. In Nizamabad district the land records are already digitised and updated under the Bhoo Bharati scheme. This scheme was also sponsored by the Central Government.
Hyderabad was excluded from the project as it require a different strategy for implementation of land records scheme.
The digitisation work would commence in Warangal district on a pilot basis and will be extended to the remaining six districts in a phased manner. A team of Centre for Good Governance (CGG) will visit Warangal next week to study the strategy of implementation.
