Taluks in two districts are to be brought under digitised mapping in phases
PUDUKOTTAI: Digitisation of land records in a couple of taluks, one each in Pudukottai and Perambalur districts, has effectively addressed boundary disputes in agricultural land.
The digital maps provide precise data on area, boundary and extension of agricultural land in the records of the Department of Survey and Land Records. Following the success of the initiative introduced as a pilot project in Pudukottai and Perambalur taluks, authorities have now extended it to Gandarvakottai taluk in Pudukottai and Veppanthattai taluk in Perambalur district.
All taluks in the two districts are to be brought under digitised mapping in phases.
"Through perfect mapping of every landholding, we are able to release the sketch to individual farmer," says A. Muthukaruppan, Assistant Director of Survey and Land Records, Perambalur.
Using the software developed by Collab Land, field measurement sketches have been computerised for 10,919 landholdings in 39 villages in Pudukottai taluk and 9,762 in 27 villages in Perambalur taluk. Of 37 villages in Gandarvakottai taluk, digitisation has been completed for 4,371 landholdings in 15 villages and in 3,099 in five villages in Veppanthattai taluk.
The data are understood from the ladder, extended, boundary and adjacency tables. Special Commissioner and Director of Survey and Land Reforms Sheela Rani Chunkath recently reviewed progress of digitisation.
