Updating Land Records in Telangana Suggested Amendments to the Rythu Vari Bhu Survey

Varun Panickar | 2018 

Abstract

The Rythu Vari Bhu Survey is the first phase of the Telangana Land Records Updation Programme (TLRUP), focussing on updating certain details of textual land records for agricultural lands. The survey has been hailed as a massive success, but leaving out spatial records and the details of agricultural tenants are major gaps in the initiative. This policy brief draws attention to these drawbacks of the survey.
