The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is very keen to provide land to landless people.
In this direction Chief Secretary of Jammu and Kashmir asked all Deputy Commissioners to identify land in their respective district for poor people under the scheme PMAY.
He asked them to submit a detailed plan within a week’s time for optimum use of the retrieved land in their respective districts.
Earlier the FCR, Shaleen Kabra, gave an overview of the module and said that with this system in place, a lot of manual labour and time will be saved. He said that it would ensure real time updation of records and whenever any new mutations are registered, it will auto update the records accordingly. He said that other states are being studied for putting in place the best system suited for the UT.
Giving details about the digitisation of revenue records, Kabra said that digitisation of revenue records and scanning of Records of Rights has been completed for all districts of the UT. He said that digitisation of cadastral maps is going on smoothly and 92% of these have been completed till date.
The meeting was further apprised about the major activities like geo-referencing of digitized cadastral maps, digitization of backlog mutations, updation of maps and integration of the same with record of rights. It was further given out that by completely switching to online updation of records on real time basis the same could be accessed by credit lending institutions and other government departments for extending credit and benefits to landowners under different beneficiary oriented schemes and programmes rolled out by the government from time to time.
