Jind becomes first district to link land record with aadhaar cards

The Jind district administration has successfully completed the pilot project of linking land record with the aadhaar card to check corruption in the revenue department.

Jind deputy commissioner Ajit Balaji Joshi said that Union government had identified two villages — Jaipur and Bishrapura — of the district under the pilot project. He said the work of linking land record with aadhaar card has been completed.

He said the step would help eliminate corrupt practices in the revenue department by putting a check on fake registration and sale of land. After the completion of the work of linking aadhaar, the DC said Jind had become first district of the country where the aadhaar cards of farmers had been linked with the land record.

He said officials of the revenue department have linked aadhaar cards of 992 and 3,054 farmers in Jaipur and Bishrapura villages, respectively.

Under this project, the farmers have also been provided digital lockers of their land record, he added.
