Web-GIS portal has been introduced in rural areas to prevent agricultural land frauds. With this facility, farmers can complete the process of mortgaging the land at banks in without making visits to tehsildar’s office. The Web-GIS portal has been adopted by the state government to streamline revue and land records.
Mukesh Bhatt, Lead District Manager (LDM) said state government has introduced a pilot project in five district including Indore district to get feedback under which the process of mortgaging the agriculture land would be completed by banks instead of tehsildar.
The farmers, at present, take agriculture loan by filling form-5, which has to be verified by tehildar and then at the office of department of registration and stamps. Under new system, rights of completing the mortgage process is given to banks wherein they can visit Web-GIS portal and make necessary entries in land records. This will bring transparency in transactions.
