Digital India Land Records Modernisation Programme: It is a Central Sector scheme that has been extended up to 2020-21 at a total cost of Rs. 950 crores. The Department of Land Resources (Ministry of Rural Development) has proposed a further extension to 2023-24, to complete its original targets as well as expand its ambit with a slew of new schemes. It attempts to build upon the commonalities that exist in the arena of land records, in various States to develop an appropriate Integrated Land Information Management System (ILIMS) across the country, on which different States can also add State-specific needs as they may deem relevant and appropriate.
ILIMS: The system will contain information on parcel ownership, land use, taxation, location boundaries, land value, encumbrances and many more. New initiatives have been taken under the program like the National Generic Document Registration System (NGDRS), ULPIN, linking of revenue court to land records, integration of consent-based Aadhar numbers with land records etc. NGDRS: It is aimed at providing one Nation one software for registration of documents & properties to 'empower citizens'. DILRMP's next phase will include linkage of land record databases with banks. This will enhance the service deliveries to the citizens of the country, and will also function as inputs to the schemes of the other sectors like Agriculture, Finance, Disaster Management etc.
