Land Records Modernisation in India: Maharashtra

Amlanjyoti Goswami, Deepika Jha, Varun Panickar, Dipankar Das | 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.

This volume on Maharashtra brings out the impact of having a historically enshrined system of maintaining property records even in urban areas, created via city surveys. The state also has a supporting legislative framework, which has enabled capturing some details of vertical property, although in a fragmented and decentralised manner.
