Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis launched the 7/12 utara (extract), a crucial land document, on a digital platform under Digital India Land Record Modernisation Programme (DILRMP) across state.
Initially, digitally signed 7/12 extracts will be available in two districts Nashik and Wardha, and entire record of 7/12 will be online by March 2017, Fadnavis said in a statement.
The decision is expected to provide relief to farmers.
“Almost 2.5 crore 7/12 extracts have been brought online until now. Now anyone can download a computerised 7/12 utara from AapleSarkar portal which will be digitally signed by the concerned official,” he added.
‘The 7/12 extract’ is an extract from the land register maintained by the Revenue department. The extract gives information of the survey number of the land, the name of the owner, its cultivator, the type of cultivation etc.
