Modified Bhoomi Software Soon
BANGALORE: The state government has decided to rename the ‘Bhoomi’ (online delivery and management of land records project) as ‘Namma Bhoomi’, giving additional details relating to land holdings of people in the state. Namma Bhoomi would also be made accessible at every village.
Speaking to reporters, Revenue Minister V Srinivas Prasad said that the modified software would be commissioned soon.
Highlighting the features of the new software tool, he said that correction of the main data, if any, relating to lands could be done at the village panchayat level itself. It would also help to reduce the delay in updating data of existing land holding records, he said.
“It would be commissioned in the next eight to nine months,” he said. Informing that laptops would be distributed to village accountants (VAs), he said, “VAs can access the data and recommend for change of mutation, change in land use and all other issues, if any, relating to land records.”
He said the last date for receiving online applications, seeking regularisation of illegally constructed houses (94-C) has been extended to September 3. He said that ‘Revenue Adalats’ would be conducted in all the villages.
“Problems relating to updating RTC records would be done at adalats, in which Assistant Commissioners, DCs and tahsildars will be present,” he said.He said the hurdles which came in the way of the appointing 1,769 surveyors were removed.
