Updating, Reconciling and Certifying Railway Land Boundary
About the project
Indian Railways owns large acres of land. Owing to the changing land boundaries, certain zones of this land have become encroached. Hence, it has become important to view the encroached areas for taking appropriate measures. This project is being conducted for South-Western and Central divisions of the Indian Railways to identify the encroached areas, synchronize and certify the changes in the land with the existing land records and develop an efficient land management system for easy updating and maintenance of land-related data.
Objectives of the Project
The existing land plans are quite old. Land has been acquired and relinquished since then. But the land plans have not been updated accordingly. Land plans for several areas are in damaged conditions and in some cases, the plans are missing. Also, land boundaries have not been updated. As a result, there has been illegal encroachment in multiple areas. Hence, the purpose of this project is to:
- Reconcile the boundaries with the records available with the State Revenue Department and to prepare an updated land map duly authenticated by the State Revenue authority
- View the encroachment pockets within the railway boundaries
- Identify the railway's land ownership records and update them according to the existing situation
