In a bid to resolve land related disputes, Revenue Department, Government of Chhattisgarh, is likely to conduct survey, resurvey and updating of cadastral maps of the state from next financial year. Chhattisgarh Council of Science and Technology (CCOST) has prepared a project for establishment of ground control network conducting survey, resurvey and updating of cadastral maps of the state. The CCOST submitted this project to Commissioner of Revenue and Land Record two months ago.

The Chhattisgarh government may include this project in the state budget to be tabled in the ongoing budget session on February 10. An official of the CCOST said that the CCOST had submitted the project to the Commissioner of Land Records for its approval.

 The estimated cost of the project is Rs 201.38 crore. A senior officer of the Revenue Department told ‘The Hitavada’ that the Department is planning to approve the project. “If the project is implemented, it would be helpful to minimize land disputes in the state,” the senior officer added. The main purpose of the integrated programme is to modernize management of land records, minimize the scope of the land disputes, enhance transparency in the land records maintenance system, facilitate moving eventually towards guaranteed conclusive titles to immovable properties in the state, he added.

As part of Government of India’s “National Land Records Modernization Programme (NLRMP)”, the integrated programme would modernize management of land records, minimize scope of land, property disputes, enhance transparency in the land records maintenance system, and facilitate moving eventually towards guaranteed conclusive titles to immovable properties in the state.

The major components of the programme are computerisation of all land records including mutations, digitisation of maps and integration of textual and spatial data, survey, re-survey and updating of all survey and settlement records including creation of original cadastral records wherever necessary, computerization of registration and its integration with the land records maintenance system, development of core Geospatial Information System (GIS) and capacity building.
Four techniques- Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS), Electronic Total Station (ETS), Drone Technology and High Resolution Satellite Imagery (HRSI) would be used to update the cadastral maps of Chhattisgarh. To increase accuracy of cadastral maps, four technologies will be used. The project will be completed in five years. New satellite data will be acquired through National Remote Sensing Centre (NRSC), ISRO Hyderabad. Lands will be measured through ETS, DGPS and satellite images, a scientist of the CCOST said. Preparation of cadastral maps and Records of Rights (RoR) for rural
and urban land will be taken up and completed in a phased
manner.

CCOST will help and provide technical guidance to implement the project for preparation of cadastral maps and RoR. The concept of Land Information and management is to create a single window system for a GIS based multi-purpose cadastre framework which supports continuous, readily available, comprehensive land related information at the land parcel
level.

A “Hybrid method involving usage of Stereo High Resolution Multi-Spectral Satellite” images, Pan Sharpened to have 30 cm resolution or higher, DGPS and ETSM” will be used for Agricultural Land and Abadi land in villages as well as urban land. Primary (16 km X 16 km), secondary (4 km X 4 km) and tertiary (1 km X 1 km) control points will be established that would be helpful to minimise land disputes, the scientist added.
