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.
