Yogi govt to launch anti-land mafia App

Muzaffarnagar (Uttar Pradesh), Jan 12 (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh government has developed an anti-land mafia software called ‘Dhara’.

The software will help in the prevention of duplication of revenue records, which will prevent manipulation of records by officers.

Based on GIS, the software will include all the land of gram samaj, ponds, grasslands, green-belt, including properties under litigation.

“Once Dhara becomes operational, no land mafia will be able to transact any land which belongs to the government or that in the category of green-belt. It will come to the knowledge of the revenue department if some fraudulent deal takes place,” a government spokesman said here on Monday.

The master plan of the district and development authority can also be incorporated in the software.

District Magistrate of Muzaffarnagar Selva Kumari Jayrajan, who is instrumental in developing the software, said the stamp data will also be fed into the mapping so that people can roughly know the stamp rate of the plot they are going to buy.

The government plot numbers can be viewed by stamp officials and wrong ‘benami’ can be prevented at the initial stage itself.

She said the primary aim is to prevent any wrong transactions of the government land and expose the land-mafia, which has also been the top agenda of the government. The software will be formally launched on Makar Sankranti — January 14.
