[pib] Digital India Land Record Modernization Program


From UPSC perspective, the following things are important :

Prelims level: DILRMP

Mains level: Land records management

Union Minister for Rural Development and Panchayati Raj has recently held a workshop on Digital India Land Record Modernization Programme (DILRMP).


  • The DILRMP was previously known as the National Land Record Modernization Programme (NLRMP).
  • It was launched in 2008 with the purpose to digitize and modernizing land records and developing a centralized land record management system.
  • The DILRMP is the amalgamation of two projects:
  1. Computerization of Land Records (CLR)
  2. Strengthening of Revenue Administration and Updating of Land Records (SRA & ULR)
  • The district will be taken as the unit of implementation, where all activities under the programme will converge.

Components of DILRMP

The DILRMP has 3 major components

  1. Computerization of land record
  2. Survey/re-survey
  3. Computerization of Registration

Key features: Unique Land Parcel Identification Numbers

  • It is just like the Aadhar Number of land parcels.
  • A unique ID based on Geo-coordinates of the parcels is generated and assigned to the plots.
  • This has been introduced to share the computerized digital land record data among different States/Sectors and a uniform system of assigning a unique ID to the land parcel across the country.

Benefits offered

The citizen is expected to benefit from DILRMP in one or more of the following ways;

  • Real-time land ownership records will be available to the citizen
  • Property owners will have free access to their records without any compromise in regard to the confidentiality of the information
  • Abolition of stamp papers and payment of stamp duty and registration fees through banks, etc. will also reduce interface with the Registration machinery
  • These records will be tamper-proof
  • This method will permit e-linkages to credit facilities
