Bhoomi to end fraudulent farmland deals

Under the new Bhoomi (computerisation of agriculture land records), the land registration system will be integrated with the project. Thorough verification of the ownership will be done before registration of land. Production of a computerised RTC (record of tenancy and crops) at the time of registration will be compulsory.

As soon as a plot is registered, details pertaining to the transaction will be uploaded onto Bhoomi. The details will also be communicated to the original owner through SMS. This, according to officials, will put an end to fraudulent deals.

Presently, the sub-registrar offices do not verify the ownership of any immovable property before registration. Hence, one has to keep obtaining RTCs to make sure that the land is not involved in any illegal transaction.

The integration will ensure speedy completion of the mutation process, which currently takes several months. The process will be taken up within a few hours of registration of land. The purchaser of the land will be informed about it, and katha will be issued in a month’s time, officials said.

Revenue Minister Karunakara Reddy is scheduled to launch the upgraded Bhoomi project at Tumkur Deputy Commissioner’s office on Friday.
