Digital India Land Records Modernisation Programme (DILRMP)



    • Recently, the Union government has informed the Supreme Court that significant progress has been made in the computerisation of land ownership records, as cadastral maps of 35% of over six lakh villages have so far been geotagged.


    • Cadastral Maps:
      • They are a digital form of land records that show all boundaries of different parts of land pieces based on their length, area, and direction.
    • Digital India Land Record Modernisation Programme (DILRMP):
      • It is a Central Sector scheme that has been extended to 2023-24, to complete its original targets as well as expand its ambit with a slew of new schemes.
      • In 2008, two schemes viz, Computerisation of Land Records (CLR) and Strengthening of Revenue Administration and Updating of Land Records (SRA&ULR) were merged into a modified scheme named DILRMP.
      • It is implemented by the Department of Land Resources under the Ministry of Rural Development.
      • The DILRMP has 3 major components – (a) Computerization of land record (b) Survey/re-survey (c) Computerization of Registration.
