Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme

News: Union Minister for Rural Development and Panchayati Raj has recently held a workshop on Digital India Land Record Modernization Programme (DILRMP).


  • The DILRMP was previously known as the National Land Record Modernization Programme (NLRMP). It was launched in 2008 with the purpose to digitize and modernizing land records and developing a centralized land record management system. The DILRMP is the amalgamation of two projects:
    • Computerization of Land Records (CLR)
    • Strengthening of Revenue Administration and Updating of Land Records (SRA & ULR)
  • The district will be taken as the unit of implementation, where all activities under the programme will converge. The DILRMP has 3 major components
    • Computerization of land record
    • Survey/re-survey
    • Computerization of Registration
  • Unique Land Parcel Identification Numbers is just like the Aadhar Number of land parcels. A unique ID based on Geo-coordinates of the parcels is generated and assigned to the plots. This has been introduced to share the computerized digital land record data among different States/Sectors and a uniform system of assigning a unique ID to the land parcel across the country.
  • The citizen is expected to benefit from DILRMP in one or more of the following ways;
    • Real-time land ownership records will be available to the citizen
    • Property owners will have free access to their records without any compromise in regard to the confidentiality of the information
    • Abolition of stamp papers and payment of stamp duty and registration fees through banks, etc. will also reduce interface with the Registration machinery
    • These records will be tamper-proof
    • This┬ámethod will permit e-linkages to credit facilities
