Government to Connect Land Records to Aadhar; Unique Number for Each Property
New Delhi: In an exercise that will challenge Benami dealings across the country and to bring transparency in land ownership, the union government will soon start issuing unique numbers for landholdings for each surveyed property which will also be connected to Aadhar, reports said.
The unique number will have details of the state, district, tehsil or taluk, block level and street information, wherever applicable, and information about the plot including size and ownership details. The rural development ministry has already started work on assigning unique number for each surveyed plot, government sources revealed.
The government is of the view that assigning unique numbers to plots of land would facilitate real estate transactions, help resolve property taxation issues and improve disaster planning and response efforts, besides making it easier to acquire land for public projects. This unique land parcel number will be linked to the Aadhaar and revenue court system, the official told media.
