Sources say that the commissioner noticed how slowly the land records were being digitized and gave orders for the job to be done before the deadline. So far, 84% of the mouza (village) records have been put on computers. Girdawari, which is a record of crop inspections, also needs to be digitized.
A senior district administration official who did not want to be named also said that digitization was going slowly because new housing societies in several mouzas were not yet computerized. People were told that the government wanted to digitize land records so that people wouldn’t have to go to the office.
