The Department of Land Resources is implementing the following two Schemes/Programmes:

  1. Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP) and
  2. Watershed Development Component of Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (WDC- PMKSY) 
  3. Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP)
  • Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (erstwhile National Land Record Modernization Programme-) was revamped and converted as a Central Sector Scheme with effect from 1st April, 2016 with 100% funding by the Centre. 
  • The objective of DILRMP is to develop a modern, comprehensive and transparent land record management system with the aim to develop an Integrated Land Information Management System which will inter alia: (i) improve real-time information on land; (ii) optimize use of land resources; (iii) benefit both landowners & prospectors; (iv) assist in policy & planning; (v) reduce land disputes; (vi) check fraudulent/benami transactions (vii) obviate need of physical visits to Revenue/Registration offices (viii) enable sharing of information with various organizations/agencies.

Some innovative initiatives under DILRMP:

a) Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) or Bhu-Aadhar

  • Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) system is a 14 digit Alpha–numeric unique ID for each land parcel based on Geo-coordinates of vertices of the parcel which is of international standard and complies with Electronic Commerce Code Management Association (ECCMA) standard and Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard, is being implemented across the country. 
  • ULPIN will have ownership details of the plot besides its size and longitudinal and latitudinal details. This would facilitate real estate transactions, help resolve property boundaries issues and improve disaster planning and response efforts, etc.

b) National Generic Document Registration System (NGDRS) or E-Registration

  • In order to have a uniform process for registration for deeds/documents, One Nation One Registration Software namely National Generic Document Registration System (NGDRS)”is being implemented in States/UTs. 
  • The National Generic Document Registration System (NGDRS) or e-Registration is a common, generic and configurable application developed for Registration Departments across the country. The application is specifically designed for the use of sub registrars, citizens and apex users from registration departments. 
  • NGDRS or e-Registration facilitates States to create state specific instances and configure the software as per requirements. It empowers citizens through online entry of deed, online payment, online appointment, online admission, document search and certified copy generation.
  •  The innovative initiative of NGDRS or e-Registration has been the recipient of the Prime Minister Award for Excellence in Public Administration for 2021 for the Central category of Innovation. Data relating to NGDRS, or e-Registration is available on NGDRS portal- on a real time basis.
