11 Orissa tehsils to have modernised record rooms

Under the project a large number of old land records that are kept in record rooms at tehsil Offices would be digitised

New Delhi: Record rooms of 11 tehsils in four districts of Orissa would be modernised under the National Land Records Modernisation Program (NLRMP) soon.

"Record rooms of 11 tehsils will be modernised at the cost 25 lakh each for systematic management of the land records and their easy retrieval," state Revenue and Disaster Management Department Additional Secretary Kalika Prasad Dash said.

The 11 Tehsils that will be covered under the project are of Cuttack, Ganjam, Khurda and Keonjhar district.

"This year we have still not received the funds for NLRMP from centre and we will be managing the record rooms' modernisation project from the previous year's budget,' he said adding that last year Rs 9.24 crore were allocated to them under scheme.

Under the project a large number of old land records that are kept in record rooms at tehsil Offices would be digitised. As a result records will be available to needy as and when required.

This project will also dispose of the records that have outlived their purpose and have to be taken out of record room.

Dash said, "Major focus of the project will on indexing and storage of records so that it does not pose any problem to the common public when they want to retrieve any record as per their requirement."

Computerisation of Land Records project has been launched in Orissa with financial assistance of Government of India. So far computerisation and data entry work in 172 tehsils has been completed in the state.

The modernised tehsils have stared offering certified copies of records to the citizens at prescribed fee.  Till now around Rs.5.32 crores have been collected as fees for providing computerised services.

Under NEGP Scheme, Land Records (ROR) will be available to Common man in his own locality through Common Services Centre. But the progress is very slow. For rural people particularly for farmers it is a necessary documents. For issuing ROR, one have to run to nearest Tehsil Office several times and also spend money. This scheme should be launched on a war foot basis so that curruption will be decreased substantially.

Superb.It is must, because valuable records should be preserved.So many R.T.I.cases are pending for want of old records. So many deputy tahsildars and tahsildar are punished under RTI act only because of not giving old records details.The action taken by Orisa Secretary should be forwarded to Tamil Nadu.Why Tamil Nadu Govt. is not receiving the funds from the Govt.? being a Govt.Employee of Tamil Nadu I very much thanks and wishes to Mr.Dash.Hats of to You.
