Sangrur becomes 1st Distt to have all land records on web

Sangrur November 12:

The Punjab Government today achieved a major landmark by computerising the land records of the entire Sangrur district and putting it on web.

Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal termed it as a revolutionary step as part of administrative reforms to eradicate corruption from the public dealing seats. As Mr Badal clicked the mouse, Sangrur got the proud distinction of becoming the first district in India having 100 per cent computerised land records.

As Mr Badal inaugurated the 'Fard Kender' at Sunam, it marked the accomplishment of three-and-a-half years' effort of computerising lakhs of land records and empowering the farmers constituting 70 per cent population of Punjab, to get a copy of their land records at the click of the mouse, sitting at home and without the intervention of 'most powerful Patwari' Mr Badal said it was his vision to put all land records on computer so that revenue authorities could not fiddle with the record besides saving farmers from the hassles of revenue officials.

He said by March 31, 2011, land records of the entire state would be computerised fulfilling his long cherished mission. Mr Badal said the Punjab revenue department had already completed the data entry of over three crore land records and validation of records by revenue authorities would be completed by December 31 and the entire state would be on the web by March 31 next. He said that Punjab would be the first state in the country to have proud distinction with 100 pwe cent computerised land records.

Vowing to transform the revenue administration, Mr Badal said that the SAD-BJP government had initiated a revolutionary step to simplify and amend archaic revenue laws under which the level of appeals had been reduced from 15 to 5, shortening the legal redressal method. He said that with the proposed amendments revenue cases would be decided in a time bound manner and generations would not have to fight revenue cases.
