Estate Office to link land records with Aadhaar

The UT Estate Office will soon start work to link all urban and rural land records with Aadhaar number.

UT Deputy Commissioner Ajit Balaji Joshi said Chandigarh would be the first in the country where urban land records would be linked with Aadhaar.

The Deputy Commissioner said drones would be used to get the imagery of all properties falling under the jurisdiction of UT Administration.

With the property being linked with satellite data, owners, present in any part of the world, would be able to see their properties. They would be able to track even the changes or any kind of encroachment on their properties, he said.

The Deputy Commissioner stated that the move would help identify the actual land owners and prevent fraud in land dealings.

The process of the digitisation of urban and rural land records of the Estate Office is in the final stage.
