Land Records Modernisation in India: Uttar Pradesh

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 Uttar Pradesh studies in detail the approach and practice of assigning a Unique Property Identification Code (UPIC) for every rural land parcel in the state. It also explores the digital integration of various land related applications, datasets and formats across multiple institutions for efficient management of land information. Adapting this to the urban context, the system of such a unique property code may be one of the most significant solutions for the implementation of interlinked datasets across multiple institutions and data formats.
