CHENNAI: Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Friday launched the e-Adangal system which would benefit farmers in many ways. Adangal is considered as an important base document for arriving at the agricultural production at village/taluk/district and State-level. It is also an essential document to facilitate credit to the farmers. This contains details of land, such as area, assessment, water cess, soil classification, and nature of crops grown. 

At present, the adangal is manually written by Village Administrative Officers. To simplify this task and to enable people have an easy access to it, the adangal register is being converted into an electronic format through TNeGA. 

Besides the entries made by the VAOs in the e-adangal, it also provides an opportunity to the farmers to record details of crops grown in their land in the application, which will be authenticated by the VAO. Wherever there is a mismatch between the entries made by the VAO and a farmer, provisions have been made for automatic reference of the entry to a superior officer for making corrections, if any.
