With the computerisation of land records of 955 villages out of the total 1,005 villages in Jalandhar, the district is set to achieve 100% computerisation of land records soon.
Deputy commissioner Kamal Kishor Yadav said the district administration had been putting its best efforts to achieve 100% computerisation of land records, keeping in mind the importance of the project for the public.
He said that as of now, the computerisation of 95% land records had been accomplished and the remaining work would be completed by April 2015.
Yadav further said the government had started the project to provide computerised copies of 'farads' through Farad Kendras to the common man and to farmers in particular. By providing the services to them, the kendras are replicating the vision of the state government in an effective manner, the DC added.
"People in the district can now get computerised copies of the 'farads' with ease and at affordable rates from the 12 kendras being run in Jalandhar district," he said.
The DC further said that in the month of August, as many as 12,012 computerised copies of the 'farads' had been issued to the applicants by the kendras being run at Jalandhar-1, Adampur, Jalandhar-2, Bhogpur, Kartarpur, Shahkot, Lohian, Nakodar, Mehatpur, Phillaur, Goraya and Nurmahal.
