Nizamabad: The integrated land management system in the form of Dharani portal has been welcomed by both officials and the people in erstwhile Nizamabad district since it reduces the workload of the officials besides being farmer-friendly. In the first three days of Dharani going live, revenue officials in Nizamabad district completed about 100 registrations while in Kamareddy, the number was higher at 132 registrations.
People turning up at the Tahsildhar offices say the new system has drastically reduced corruption and scope for irregularities in land transactions. Earlier, the land registration process took long time which included registration of land purchased at sub-registrar’s office and then the Tahsildhar’s office for mutation. “We get the pattadar passbook only after 90 days, while the Dharani process takes just a few minutes,” a farmer waiting for registration of land said.
Begari Anuradha of Palda village in Nizamabad rural mandal told Telangana Today that she got her gift deed registered in less than 10 minutes. “My uncle gifted me one acre and five guntas of lands, and the entire process of adding this piece of land to my account and deletion from my uncle’s account was done in no time,” she said. She recalled her family’s ordeal before the introduction of Dharani, given the entire process took three months then.
B Prashanth Kumar, Tahsildar, Nizamabad Rural mandal, observing that Dharani was both land owner and official-friendly, said farmers now were relieved since they didn’t have to make the rounds of various offices for registration and mutation. Gangadhar, a farmer, said this system would prevent several irregularities such as double registrations since the land sold gets deleted from the seller’s account immediately. “This will also reduce real estate frauds,” he said.
