The second phase of computerisation of land documents will begin at designated camps under various village offices in Kozhikode taluk on Wednesday.

Landowners have to submit filled-in forms meant for this purpose and also produce the title deed , revenue receipt, and Aadhaar card. If the title deed is pledged at a financial institution, property owners should produce a letter from the institution. The camps will be held between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The first phase of the programme was started in August. Already the village offices under Kozhikode, Koyilandy, Vadakara and Thamarassery taluks have started distributing forms to collect land ownership details from individuals.

In this connection, the Kerala Land Information Mission last year launched an e-rekha web portal, an Internet-based survey records data directory, and Map My Home mobile application, which helps in tracing location of revenue offices and services. The site also gives provision for the purchase of survey data via online payment method.

Digital access

Officials said that the e-rekha portal provides digital access to survey records anywhere any time to all the stakeholders especially land owners and digital preservation and archiving of land records to protect interest of various stakeholders especially to the government.

Besides, it also ensured transparency on land transactions by providing online viewing facilities of survey records.
