Haryana fixes deadline to make land records online

CHANDIGARH: Haryana Land Records and Consolidation Department has fixed October 31, 2012 as the deadline for making all land records hundred per cent online.

No manual ‘nakal’ of record of rights will be issued from November 1, 2012 and only computerized ‘nakal’ from software of Haryana Land Record Information System (HALRIS) would be permitted, said a spokesman of the department on Saturday.

A communication to this effect has been sent to all Deputy Commissioners in the State, he added.

He said that all village maps (mussavis) are being digitized under the National Land Records Modernization Programme. Deputy Commissioners have been directed to give a print of the digitized ‘mussavi’ to concerned patwari for updating and the patwari will have to return the updated ‘mussavi’ to the vendor within 15 days.

He said that in some cases, due to mutations not being updated in the HALRIS software, the khasra number of the digitized mussavi do not match with the number provided by the HALRIS software.

He said, “Since baseline ‘jamabandi’ of all villages has already been digitized, all mutations entered after the digitized ‘jamabandi’ would be entered in the HALRIS software to make land records hundred per cent on-line”.

In case land records cannot be made on-line by the October 31, 2012, in any specific village, the same might be communicated to Director General, Land Records and Consolidation with reasons so as to avoid inconvenience to the farmers after November 1,2012, he added.
