Land Records in India have evolved over centuries. The Land revenue was the main source of revenue for Indian rulers and then for British. The present form of preparation and maintenance of Land Records originated during Mughal period.
It is very difficult for a common man to understand their own records of rights. Corruption and lack of transparency are other issues associated with Land Records in India. The government of India realized these problems and started National Land Records Modernization Program (NLRMP) with the aim to standardize and computerize all land records in India in a phased manner. Under NLRMP all land records and related services are being made online. Few states have already computerized their land records while some are in the process.
Department of Revenue and Land Reforms of Jharkhand has developed the MIS portal http://jharbhoomi.jharkhand.gov.in in association with National Informatics Center (NIC) to digitize land records system in Jharkhand. One of the major objectives of this website is to provide Jharkhand Land Record (Khesra, Khata) details online to the citizen.
You would require your Jharkhand Land Records for any of the following reasons:
- For checking Mutation status.
- To raise farm credit/loan from the Bank.
- For Bank account opening.
- To verify land title during the sale of land and registration of property.
- For the division of land.
- Personal purpose.
- Legal purposes.
