Govt to give 90% funding to NE for land records modernisation
New Delhi: Union Government will now provide
90 per cent funding to the North Eastern states for updating
and modernising land records in the region.
The Union Cabinet, presided over by Prime Minister
Manmohan Singh, today cleared a proposal to change the funding
pattern for the North-Eastern states under the National Land
Records Modernisation Programme (NLRMP).
Earlier, the central share ranged from 25 per cent to 50
per cent for certain components. The funding under the scheme
will include assistance for survey, re-survey and updating of
settlement records, Information and Broadcasting Minister
Ambika Soni said.
The fund will also help the states computerise land
registration and setting up modern record rooms and land
records management centres at tehsil, taluk and block level.
The proposal was put up by department of Land Resources,
Ministry of Rural Development.
"It is expected that the modifications in the funding
pattern will encourage the North Eastern States for
implementation of the NLRMP. This will lead to establishment
of proper land records maintenance and registration systems in
these remote and strategically located states," Soni said.
