In the past few years the revenue department of Jammu and Kashmir has been able to develop a land records information system.

As part of the program implementation in J&K, 7.70 Crore pages of Revenue record and 55216 Musavi (maps) have been scanned, besides 3895 Ground Control Points have been established, and Web-based Enterprise Geo-Information System (GIS) has been developed.    This mammoth task was accomplished in a systematic manner wherein, as per the National Land Records Modernization Programme (NLRMP) guidelines, Department of Revenue, Government of J&K created a Project Management Unit (PMU) under the guidance of Financial Commissioner, Revenue, J&K.

To address the land records Modernization programme and subsequent management of the records, the PMU was registered as Society and named as Jammu & Kashmir Land Records Management Agency (JaKLaRMA). The administrative and functional structure of the society is very comprehensive with inclusion of all line departments, agencies and office within the UT. The Society is chaired by Chief Secretary and Financial Commissioner Revenue, is the chief executive. This Society oversaw the task of scanning of revenue records and ensured that it is completed in a mission mode and in a time-bound manner.

Consequently, after its launch, the land records portal is now one-stop destination for revenue records. Aapki Zameen Aapki Nigrani (Your Land, Your Sight) has ushered in an era of transparency and convenience for the citizens. They no longer need to visit to the offices for obtaining information about their revenue record. They can simply view and download the information/record from the land records portal. More than 10.70 lakh citizens have already viewed the status of their land records on the portal with feedback to the department and this feedback of the citizens has resulted in purification and updation of land records.
