First Edition
Edited by:

May 2005 | 315 pages | SAGE India
This is the tenth volume in a major series which studies the status of land reforms throughout the country. It examines the progress achieved and the difficulties encountered in the computerisation of land records in various states.

In 1988, the central government sponsored the Computerisation of Land Records (CoLR) scheme to tackle the recurring problems thrown up by inadequate land records system. Providing a critical appraisal of CoLR, the 20 articles in the volume are divided into three sections: Computerisation of Land Records; Digitisation of Cadastral Maps; and Land Information System.

Based on empirical data and field studies, this volume is an important contribution towards understanding the socio-economic realities and social dynamics of contemporary India in the framework of land reforms.
