TN revenue dept begins drive to rectify errors in digital land records

The Revenue Department of Tamil Nadu began an extensive exercise to correct the mistakes in the names and details of people in the digital land records.

Various landowners, even those who hold modest land, complained to the department that they had to wait for a very long duration of time to correct the mistakes in the digital records and were dealing with huge issues due to this.

Murugan M R, who sold his ancestral 2.5 cents, had to run from one place to another to get a few minor errors corrected in the spelling of his late father's name. He told the media that it was an agonising experience, and even after producing his father's death certificate with the right initials, the officials refused to permit it, and he suspects that they wanted a bribe, but he was unwilling to give it. He mentioned that correcting errors is essential for the general public and would relieve the trauma they have to go through when approaching a tehsildar or village office.

The records have been digitised in Tamil Nadu a few years ago. It covered corrections in almost all the records except for a few, creating problems for the unfortunate landowners.

A senior revenue department official told the media that the land sale is more in cities, and as a result, there will be a massive time log needed for correcting the records of digital land. For example, Chennai has a vast backlog, and the time frame will be more, but in rural and remote villages, things would be easy, as there are negligible land transactions.

The official said that the department would scrutinise each digitalised record against the copy of the document and correct the entries, consequently leaving less room for mistakes even in the future.

The department of revenue spoke to the department of state registration to give details of all buyers, including their contact numbers, to send SMS for the name transfer of pattas.

The department also began automatic name transfer of land records, or 'pattas' after-sale deeds have been carried out in the registration department. The automatic transfer of name commenced in February 2021 previously by linking the records with the Department of Registration.
