After the successful launch of Rythu Bandhu scheme, the State government has now shifted its focus to the launch of ‘Dharani,’ a one-stop solution website for all revenue needs replacing ‘Maabhoomi.’ The trial run of the website will be conducted on Saturday in 30 mandals across the State.
The Revenue Department has been working rigorously for the launch of the unique website which would facilitate both government and land owners utilise it for revenue related matters. After purification of land records, the State government developed a new website with latest technology.
Unlike the Maabhoomi website, the State government will be giving digital keys to revenue, agriculture, irrigation, cooperative and banking sectors to access the website to know details of farmers or land owners. “If a land owner mentions his Khata number, officials concerned can get all details of the land at the click of a button. Extension of services such as bank loans to farmers, irrigation facilities and crop pattern would become much easier now,” CCLA director and Dharani website in-charge Vakati Karuna told Telangana Today.
The website also contains provisions such as mutation of land records within 24 hours after registration without any request of the property purchasers besides getting documents such as I-B, ROR, Pahanis, among other things. Dharani will also ensure transparency in revenue transactions, unlike in Maabhoomi portal, where revenue record changes were carried out without obtaining any approval of RDO or MRO. However, with the launch of the new website, biometric recording of officers is mandatory to ensure changes in the online revenue records, she said.
No Need to mortgage passbooks
The government will allow banks to access Dharani website and directed them not to mortgage farmers passbooks for sanction loans. If bankers want to know details before approving loans such as total extent, crop pattern, irrigation facility, arrears and title clearance, the details would be available in the website.
Website in Telugu
Unlike Maabhoomi website which was available only in English, this time the government has developed website in both English and Telugu languages for the convenience of rural farmers. The website developers recently extended training to Tahsildars of 30 mandals and explained about the functioning of newly developed website including implementation of biometric system.
After taking feedback form 30 mandals, the government is likely to launch Dharani website in full-fledged manner from June 2 in entire State.
