Haryana Revenue and Disaster Management Department is rolling out cloud-based centralised online system Web-HALRIS to manage property registration and land record in the state. The system is presently being pilot tested.

This was disclosed in a meeting presided over by Revenue and Disaster Management Minister Captain Abhimanyu to review the progress of digitisation of land records, property registration and other e-governance initiatives taken to ease the interface of the public with the department in all districts.

Abhimanyu directed officers of the department to roll out new initiatives and pilot projects in a time-bound manner. During the meeting, the Minister was informed that Haryana was the first state to integrate property registration, mutations and jamabandi (revenue settlement processes using HARIS and HALRIS software. This integrated system automatically verifies the ownership and share of the seller prior to the registration of the sale of land. It also facilitates the sanctioning of the mutation of the land thus registered.

Abhimanyu expressed appreciation for several new initiatives taken by the Revenue Department since October, 2014, such as e-Registration, e-Stamping and online appointment for deed-registration to ease the process of land registry.

The appointment could also be made through the common service centres in villages across the state. The e-Registration has been seamlessly integrated with an e-Stamping system using e-Gras System of the Finance Department, which is a unique initiative in the country, he added.

The minister was also informed that details of all lands under dispute have been made available in the public domain for the pending revenue court cases.

The Department has also developed an e-Khasra Girdawari Mobile App and is also implementing a pilot project for Aadhaar linking with land records and Aadhaar-enabled property registration system. The e-Registration has been linked with Urban Local Bodies, Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) and Haryana State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (HSIIDC) properties in urban areas. Digital signatures are also being introduced for digitally signing the registration deeds and copy of the Record of Rights.
