The Indian government have already begun digitizing its land records. After digitalization, obtaining the Bhu Naksha, cadastral map, or area map via internet platforms became simpler. The Indian government stepped up and decided to develop an automated new means of administering all states' land records by combining the two NLRMP vectors (National Land Records Modernization Programme). As a result, the cadastral map (also known as the area map or Bhu Naksha) was created. Land conflicts have decreased due to the digitisation of land records. It also secures the conclusive title of lands sequentially.
Land records have also become easy to update and amend whenever necessary. Bihar, Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Lakshadweep, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan have cadastral maps and plans that are up-to-date. Wherever there is a gap in the cadastral map, the authorities update it with up-to-date information in all the state's districts.
Cadastral Map is a platform-agnostic application. As a result, the map may be used on both mobile phones and desktop PCs. The map was also created with the use of open and free resources. The National Informatics Center of the Indian government created and constructed the cadastral map (NIC).
The cadastral map is the perfect way to get the most accurate, comprehensive, readily, precise, and legitimate available informative records of legal rights of lands. Urban planning, establishing titles, financing, and development, use of national property grants, land policies information distribution are all handled based upon cadastral maps and plans.
Readjustment of lands that subsides the irregularity in shapes of parcels for the sake of delivering standardized utility services, transferring the development rights, ways to improve property tax collection, mapping along with valuation of the informal lands are a few important activities that become easy to inform with cadastral maps and plans.
