Meet on land administration system today

Our Bureau

Hyderabad , Feb. 11

TOP revenue officials and land administrators, representing 17 States and the Union Government, will gather at the two-day national symposium on `contemporary trends in cadastral surveys and maintenance of land records' beginning on Thursday.

"The delegates will discuss various models and initiatives being taken up to contemporise the land administration system. But they are not uniform or comprehensive. Several States are unaware of what other States are doing in this regard," Mr P.C. Parakh, Special Chief Secretary and Chief Commissioner of Land Administration (Govt of AP), said.

Addressing a press conference here on Wednesday, he said the symposium aimed at standardising processes that were vital for evolving an online Land Information System (LIS). He said the LIS would contemporise land administration. "Current thinking is that we should have a total integrated land information system, which should be made available online," Mr Vinod Agarwal, Commissioner for Survey settlement and land records, said, adding that the symposium would discuss the ways and means to evolve that system. "The meeting will bring all the states to a common platform to allow them to share their experiences and learn from one another," he said.

According to him, a project is under way to scan all the land records in the State. The project is expected to be completed in a year.
