Ranchi: Aadhaar will be mandatory as proof during land deals in Jharkhand from January 1, 2014, an official release said on Wednesday.
The decision was taken to bring in transparency in the sale/purchase of land and prevention of registering the same land more than once, the release said quoting Chief Secretary RS Sharma.
Now onwards land could be registered showing Aadhaar or other relevant documents, but from January 1 Aadhaar alone would be taken as proof in land deals, the release said.
Along with sellers and buyers of land, the witnesses too would have to produce Aadhaar. The land registration department has been asked to follow the directive, the release said.
The state has set December as deadline for Aadhaar enrollment for all the people in Jharkhand.
