Haryana govt to allot a unique ID to each property in urban areas

The Haryana government is planning to map urban areas and allot a unique ID to each property so that there is no illegal occupation of land. The move arrives after the government mapped 6,286 villages utilising drones and recorded ‘Lal Dora’ areas.

The term Lal Dora refers to the practice of drawing red lines on maps to demarcate agricultural regions from non-agricultural parcels. Lal Dora translates to red thread, and was coined during British rule.

Also, parcels that are referred to as ‘Lal Dora’ are not recorded by the authorities, and the ownership rests with the family that occupies the land. In the absence of any documents to prove ownership, this often led to fights between families. The move to map regions is aimed at recording such plots.

Chief secretary Sanjeev Kaushal said the Centre had so far issued more than 19 lakh property IDs after recording ‘Lal Dora’ plots in the villages. In the urban regions, the government will now design a database of all properties in private colonies, areas under the municipal corporation and HSVP sectors. The data will be shared with the municipal corporation.

The move is part of the government’s Survey of Villages Abadi & Mapping with Improvised Technology in Village Areas (SVAMITVA) scheme. The Lal Dora plots’ owners will get proper documents. This will support us to keep a check on conflicts over land ownership, said deputy commissioner Nishant Yadav.

Officials said since there was no ownership in the case of ‘Lal Dora’ parcels, the Centre got no revenue for these parcels. This led to unplanned development. These regions were not governed by any building bylaw. The creation of IDs will now support the owners of ‘Lal Dora’ plots to acquire loans against their properties.
