The Department of Land Reforms under the Ministry of Rural Development is planning to launch a Comprehensive Modernisation of Land Records (CMLR) system for farmers of India.
The Ministry of Rural Development is planning to launch CMLR, which will make all records od land in the country online by the end of 11th Five Year plan. According to the scheme, using aerial survey and digital mapping would computerise all records for land and other immovable properties. These computerised land records will be equipped with an automated system, which will keep records of all transactions that can be accessed online. The computerised records will be connected with a national Management Information System (MIS). This will generate a reliable database on land ownership, tenancy rights, crop details, land revenue, sources of irrigation and previous transactions. The proposed scheme will replace two existing central schemes of computerisation of land records (CLR) and strengthening of revenue administration (SRA).
