Access Delhi Archives Land Record Portal Online (E-Abhilekh) at archives.delhi.gov.in

The Delhi government is getting on board with digitisation – which just seems to be the word of the year so far. Getting things online makes them incredibly accessible and a lot more secure than having to physically store them somewhere – where they can be ruined or tampered with. 

Land records are of utmost importance, and misplacing these documents can have serious repercussions with a long-lasting impact. To make the process a lot more accessible and a lot more secure for the people of Delhi, the Delhi government has decided to make the process digital and digitise land records online. 

Through the e-Abhilekh platform, documents are now digitised and people will get access to documents relevant to them with just a simple click of the mouse. 

Access land records online through the Delhi Archives portal

The Delhi Archives platform hosts a collection of over 4 crore images, maps and other archival information which dates back all the day to FY 1803. This exhausting resource protects the heritage of the people at the Delhi Archives and is currently being, very meticulously so, digitised for public access so that people would not have to worry about their documents being misplaced. Neither would they have to go through an extensive procedure to peek into their documents for land-related procedures like buying or selling property. 

The details of how ownership is transferred from one landowner to the other is also mentioned in the Delhi archives portal. People can get a copy of the land records for personal purposes for a nominal fee. The land records are available at the Delhi Archives and belong to the people and can be used for purpose of research as well as by the residents who are looking at land for administrative purposes. 

Up until now, round about 2 crore documents have been scanned out of which 60 lakh documents have been tagged, uploaded and are ready to be accessed online through https://archives.delhi.gov.in/delhiarchive/.

The  Delhi Archives portal has over 60 lakh digitised old records for the general public to access with the click of a mouse. Over the months, the state government ensures that more documents will be added to the archive portal each day. 

Summing it up

With the world turning to more digitally feasible options, archiving land ownership documents seems to be the obvious next step in the right direction. To make it all the more accessible to the people, the deputy Delhi CM has demonstrated how the search engine works by searching the property details of a former PM, a popular film star and a former bureaucrat and got pinpoint accurate results. 

The Nodal office has been digitised and preserved under the Registration wing of the Revenue department. This specific department has Sale and leases deeds of all properties in Delhi. 

It has to be noted that the Wills registered with the department and special and general power of attorney which are confidential in nature have been spared from digitisation and will not be put up on a public forum, to be viewed by all, thereby maintaining the confidential nature of things.

Schemes launched by the state government

The state governments of India are the next important government bodies right after the central government of the country. The state governments constitute 28 states and 8 union territories

India is a democratic and republic country wherein highest authorities and powers are proffered to the central government. For the state government, real executive powers are given to Chief Minister as he is responsible for heading the Council of Ministers. The state governments of India work toward internal security, such as police department, social welfare, public health betterment and other similar state-related issues. The state government of the country earns its employee income from sales tax services, stamp duty services, and from some parts of GST.

The state governments have launched a variety of schemes so far. Some of the examples are as follows:

In Andhra Pradesh, Chandranna Bima Yojana, National Energy Efficient Agriculture Pumps Program, and Smart Pulse Survey have been launched. In Assam, Mass Rapid Transit System has been recently launched. In Maharashtra, Police Pratisaad Ask services and various schemes for the betterment of farmers have been launched. In Karnataka, PM Santwana Harish Yojana, and Housing scheme for Transgenders have been launched. In Uttar Pradesh, Deen Dayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojana, Hausla Paushan scheme, and Swadhar Greh yojana have been launched.

The state government of India monitors both rural and urban development. However, it is not feasible for the state government to monitor all rural and urban local government bodies. Thus, based on the provided funding and coverage, rural and urban local entities create development plan whenever required. These government entities work in close association with planning commission and local or regional government sectors and authorities.

Apart from these schemes, the state government also ensures the effective implementation of centrally sponsored schemes in respective states.
