JMC-Heritage to digitalise all land record maps

JMC-Heritage plans to digitise all land records because the pitiable condition of the 70-year old city survey maps is giving people a hard time recognising their properties.

JMC-Heritage commissioner Avadhesh Meena told the media that they would digitise all land record maps. After the process is concluded, people can access the photocopies while the originals will be kept securely to stop further paper decay.

The whole project will cost more than Rs 70 lakh. Experts believe the city required a new survey, and the civic body would have to increase its budget to provide it. In 1948, the Jaipur Maharaja had held a property survey of the Walled City listing the length, width and owner’s name of each property. Those maps have not been revised as per the increasing population.

Maps were formed of all 10 Chaukaris of the Walled City stating every household. These maps are beneficial even today, and they help distinguish original owners of properties. They are also acceptable in court. The JMC Heritage office has about 66 maps present for the whole Walled City.

But, many of these maps are torn from the sides and in the middle making it challenging for people to locate properties. The government did conduct two surveys after 1948, but later those surveys were annulled for not being specific enough.

Qasi Kudartullah, a map reader at the corporation, told the media that sometimes, they are able to determine the property by recognising its neighbourhood. In the Walled City, properties are normally sold by recognising the chain of owners to identify the original owner of the property to deter tenants from selling properties.
