Now, get your land records at GP offices

Starting Friday, obtaining the Record of Rights, Crops and Tenancy (RTC) will be a lot easier.

The revenue department will issue RTCs (also called pahani) at 6,019 gram panchayat offices across the state. The land record will be issued on the spot on paying Rs 10 each. And RTC of any land in the state can be obtained from any gram panchayat under the new system. Hitherto, RTCs were issued at only nadakacheris.

Director of Atalji Janasnehi Directorate Munish Moudgil said Karnataka is the only state in the country to issue RTCs at gram panchayat level. Pahani will be issued on the spot at 2,000 gram panchayats beginning July 1. The service will be made available at all 6,019 gram panchayats from August 1. The Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) department is taking steps to create necessary infrastructure for this purpose, he added.

He said Bhoomi software, where a database of rural land records is available, is linked to Panchatantra software being used by all gram panchayats. On receiving an application seeking RTC, the gram panchayats will access the Bhoomi software, take a printout of the details and issue the certificate. The panchayats can only access the details on Bhoomi software and cannot modify any details, he added.

Besides, 39 different services being provided by the Revenue department such as caste certificate, income certificate, widow certificate, domicile certificate and OBC certificate will be made available at gram panchayats, Moudgil said.

Gram panchayats will forward applications seeking any of these services to nadakacheris. Once the certificate is generated, it will be forwarded to respective gram panchayat online. The panchayat will take a printout of the certificate and issue it to the applicant. All these certificates will have digital signature, he added.
