Mumbai: As part of a programme to modernize land records, the Maharashtra government will launch an online 'mutuation system' in 73 talukas of five districts.
   
Under the system, computerised land records data will be updated and the district collector will verify and validate the upgraded records.
   
Computers for the online mutation system will be provided at the district collector office, district superintendent of land records, tehsildar and other offices, state revenue secretary Swadheen Kshatriya said.
   
Digital signature and SMS technology has been used for the online mutation system, he said.
   
All revenue offices will be connected through the MPLS VPN (Multi-Protocol Label Switching, Virtual Private Network) connectivity, and this will help in minimising disputes related to land titles. With this connectivity, computers at taluka level will be linked to the state data centre, he said.
   
In the current year, the mutation system will be implemented in Kankavali taluka of Sindhudurg district, Dindori taluka of Nashik, Ausa taluka of Latur, Buldhana taluka of Buldhana district and Savner taluka of Nagpur.
   
At present, the system is in use on pilot basis in Mulshi, Haveli and Pune city talukas of Pune district.
   
To bring about revenue reforms in state, the government plans to pick up innovative measures implemented by district collectors in rest of the state under the 'Suvarna Jayanti Rajasva Abhiyan', Kshatriya said.
   
"We want to make the revenue department more people friendly," he said.

Under the revenue department, as many as 95 services are provided for various works related to common man's daily life.
   
"All districts will need to have separate website of their own for the purpose. The guidelines prepared by the Nanded collectorate have been forwarded to all districts and employees have been trained to provide the services online. The aim is to reduce crowding at the tehsil office," he added.
   
Similarly, another scheme is to start E-seva centre for villages. Nanded district had pioneered this scheme.
   
Besides, camps will be organised for providing certificates required for education, jobs and availing various benefits under government schemes.
   
In Kolhapur and Pune, 1,54,077 certificates were handed over in a single day, immediately after applications were made in the camp for three days.
