Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep S Puri has launched e-Dharti app, a new online system to provide the facility of online application submission in connection with conversion, substitution and mutation of properties under the jurisdiction of Land and Development Office (L&DO) for the citizens.
Land and Development Office deals with public applications which are mainly related to conversion of property from leasehold to freehold, substitution of names of legal heirs and mutation in the name of purchaser, etc. These three applications cover almost 95 percent of total applications received.
The app will now allow people to submit their applications online by visiting L&DO website and avoid visiting the office for submission of their applications and for further follow up.
The MoHUA has also made the payment system in Land and Development Office completely digitised. Work is going on other three small modules namely Sale Permission, Mortgage Permission and Gift Permission and will be completed soon.
e-Dharti Geo Portal, another important application on which L&DO has started working, is GIS-based mapping of all its 65,000 properties. Through this application each and every government property under L&DO, whether it is allotted or still lying vacant, is proposed to be mapped on the portal.
