The Integrated Land Information System titled `Bhu Bharati' has been launched on a pilot basis in the district Nizamabad, Andhra Pradesh (India).

The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh State, Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy has expressed the hope that it would find a solution to all disputes relating to land in the State of Andhra Pradesh. Formally launching the project costing Rs.34 crores at Salampad village in Bodhan mandal, on November 5, 2006, he said the project would be gradually extended to all the districts in the next two years. He explained details of `Bhu Bharati' at the well-attended public meeting, and he said that the project was aimed at compiling all details of land and its titles that would enable the title-holders or authorities dealing with land matters to have a comprehensive report of any title with 'one click'. The ILIS would be useful not only to agriculture land markings but to industrial, commercial and landed properties in towns.
