Land Records Modernisation in India: Delhi

Deepika Jha, Ruby Moun, Vrishti Saini, Varun Panickar, Amlanjyoti Goswami | 2021

During 2017–2020, a team of researchers at the Indian Institute for Human Settlements conducted a series of primary and secondary studies on land record modernisation initiatives in five states and union territories of India. Based on extensive on-ground research, this work is part of a five-volume set that presents findings from Delhi, Maharashtra, Chandigarh, Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh, with a focus on  urban land and property records and the associated complexities.

Delhi has a unique Constitutional position where ‘land’ as a domain is under the Central Government, whereas initiatives to computerise land records and registration are primarily implemented by the State Government. With a multi-layered history and varied property types, records and administration, this land volume on Delhi is among the best examples to understand the institutional complexity in urban land administration.
