Transparency has taken another major stride in the state with 158 out of 164 Fard kendras of the Revenue Department going online. Now any land owner can get a certified copy of the Jamabandi (Record of Rights) from any Fard Kendra in the state.
It may be recalled that the Revenue Department had initiated a project in 2004 to digitize the land records.
Revenue Minister Mr. Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria said out of a total around 13000 villages in the state, only 100 urban villages are left due to complex revenue record and work is going on make their land records online.
Besides, under this project revenue records will be updated directly on the central server (Cloud) without any delay. Now property record is just a click away.
Elaborating, Mr. Sarkaria said now a resident of Faridkot district can get a certified copy of Jamabandi from a Fard Kendra in Khanna.
This project has come as a boon for the people of Punjab as it will save time from the cumbersome paper work.
The Additional Chief Secretary-cum-FCR Mr. MP Singh directed the Director Land Records (DLRs) and Punjab Land Records Society (PLRS) to complete the project by December 31, 2018.
He said the Revenue department was fully committed to providing hassle-free services to the people in a transparent manner.
The department has already achieved a milestone with the launch of online property registration across the state and has become the first state of the country, besides launching a pilot project of Revenue Court Management System (RCMS) in the Revenue Courts of Amloh in Fatehgarh Sahib District.>
