  • Land Records Computerisation
    • A Unicode based application software (Vasudha) has been developed for Land Record Computerization in the State. The aim of this project is to computerize the land records of the state. Computerization of land records is an effort to computerize the khatiyan i.e. base document of land records and Register-2 to a cutoff date and then record all the future transactions online. The process captures the data online, making it available to the people through the web, so that the people can take informed decisions. The project was initially taken up in East Singhbhum on pilot basis. In East Singhbhum, all the khatiyans and Register-2 had been computerized and the Mutation process has been made online. Success at East Singhbhum has been a great morale booster and now the software is being replicated in other districts of the state like Ranchi, Dumka and West Singhbhum.
