Gandhinagar: Gujarat assembly on Tuesday passed
the amendment bill The Bombay land Revenue (Gujarat Amendment)
Bill, 2010, which proposed to allow computerisation of land
records in the state.
"The amendment is proposed with the objective of
optimal use of electronic technology to remove human interface
with a view to eliminate harassment to citizens in the record
of rights and other related works relating to revenue," stated
in the statement of objects and reasons of the bill.
State Revenue Minister Anandiben Patel, who introduced
the bill in the state assembly, said that the state government
wants to bring in transparency in the revenue related works
and therefore promotes use of technology.
"It is the aim of the state government to take the
step forward in the direction of giving final and conclusive
title in respect of land after successful implementation of
e-registration of sale documents in the state," she stated as
one of the main objects of the amendment bill.
The minister added, "This amendment bill would enable
the state government to serve at the doorstep of the common
man and eliminate harassment of running from pillar to post in
obtaining land records."
It may be noted that the state government has launched
a special project to computerise the entire land records from
village to the state level.
