Bhoomi Karnataka Online Land Records

The “e-Governance (ई-गवर्नेंस)” word in the terms was vogue world at the beginning of the 90s. In the late nineties, the terms came into discussion in the country. Initially, the e-governance means the use of computers in government (सरकारी कामकाज में कम्प्यूटर का उपयोग करने) was considered limited. But later the terms were used with e-governance ICT i.e. Information and Communication Technology (इनफॅार्मेशन एवं कम्युनिकेशन टेक्नोलॉजी) means in the implementation of e-governance these two techniques in the use of computer and communication. In the early nineties, the computerization was started in the railway reservation system (रेलवे आरक्षण का कम्प्यूटरीकरण) in India. Reserving the right to go in the center, and from that time to go anywhere to meet reserve railway was an alien in this country. People began to understand the importance of the e-governance project. But it is taken seriously by the Indian government in the year of 2006, the central government approved to the national e-Governance Plan (राष्ट्रीय ई-गवर्नेंस योजना – NeGP) to started and implement of e-governance in 18th May 2006. This initiative was taken by the Gujarat, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh government of the states. This was the best medium to give government schemes to rural peoples without disturbance. In the Karnataka Land Project “ Bhoomi Pariyaojana (भूमि परियोजना), e-Procurement Project (ई-प्रोक्योरमेंट परियोजना), in Gujarat e-City Project (ई-सिटी योजना), e-PDC Scheme (ई-पीडीएस योजना) of Chhattisgarh all these are examples of an effective system.

Another big advantage of the e-governance is that it is possible to be deployed to transparent governance (पारदर्शी शासन व्यवस्था). With using only the computer does not remove corruption from the administration, but the planning system with the imposition of the e-governance, corruption-free administration (भ्रष्टाचार मुक्त प्रशासन) indirect can be imagined. About two years ago, when the Gujarat government on the e-governance project of 16 thousand school teachers recruited solely through e-governance was just as the process by engineering colleges is the Internet. They had to apply online. They had to verify all certificates from local centers and in which district want to get the job it had to make priorities. Then just they had to wait for the results on the portal of the Government of Gujarat. Narendra Modi was questioned at that time whether direct interview? How anyone can give you a job without an interview? Mr. Modi said How anyone could understand to someone in just three to four minutes a direct meeting? A direct interview is a source of corruption. So it was removed. He said a test will be taken after six months and the poorly performing all of them will be removed.

It was a matter of utmost importance and thus 16 thousand teachers were recruited. There was no corruption of money and there was no dispute. This is an example of the fact that the authenticity of the e-governance projects implemented in all sectors of the administration, corruption will be less certain. For effective implementation of e-governance project at five major parts must be properly implemented.

  • E-Data (ई-डाटा) / E-Records (ई-रिकॉर्ड्स)
  • E-Delivery (ई-डिलीवरी) / E-Distribution (ई-वितरण)
  • E-Procurement (ई-प्रोक्योरमेंट)/ E-Purchase (ई-खरीद)
  • E-Monitoring (ई-मॉनिटरिंग) / E- Surveillance (ई-निगरानी)
  • E-Report (ई-रिपोर्ट्स)

The major source of corruption is the lack of appropriate information available at the time. All information is buried in the files of offices and the whole game of corruption starts from here. Therefore for effective implementation of e-governance digitalization (जानकारी का डिजिटलाइजेशन) of information is required. Land records information (भूमि रिकॉर्ड की जानकारी), determine the property tax (प्रॉपर्टी टैक्स का निर्धारण), vehicle registration (वाहनों का पंजीकरण), etc. information must be available in digital format. In the early days, some state governments implemented the e-governance project without the bases of digital information which plan was failed. Although many states now have made the necessary information digitized.


The revenue department of Karnataka state developed software called Bhoomi with the contribution of RTC. The Land (Bhoomi) related to land records management is the country’s first e-governance project has been successfully implemented for the benefit of the common man. Under the project, each taluk of the Karnataka provided the land record through the kiosks which have been set up in complete state. This Bhoomi project has the following main objects:
