Case Study of the Day: Maha Land Bank System

Context: The Aspirational District of Washim has created a unique repository of Government Land on a Portal, as a part of a State-wide programme in Maharashtra.

About the Maha Land Bank System

  • The Maha Land Bank system is a digital platform launched by the Government of Maharashtra in India in 2018.
  • It is an online system for managing and maintaining land records in the state of Maharashtra. The platform is aimed at creating a single-window system for all land-related services in the state.
  • The Land Bank serves as a repository of information for taking policy decisions on the allocation of Government Land such as:
    • Provision of Affordable Housing
    • Irrigation
    • Public Supply
    • Self-supplied Industries
    •  Aquaculture
    •  Mining
    • Tree Plantation, etc.
  • It is also a citizen-centric effort.
  • It provides information about all types of Government Land (class of land viz. E, F, G, C, Nazul, City survey, etc.).
  • It is a major step towards bridging the information asymmetry on land records and providing valuable information to the citizenry.

Situation Prior to the Land Bank System

  • Prior to the launch of Maha Land Bank, the land records in Maharashtra were maintained in a fragmented manner, with multiple departments and agencies involved in the process.
  • This led to delays, errors, and corruption in the land administration system. Land disputes were also common due to the lack of transparency in land transactions.

Benefits of the Measure

  • Transparency: The platform brings transparency to the land administration system by providing access to accurate and up-to-date land records.
  • Efficiency: The system allows for faster processing of land-related transactions, reducing delays and corruption.
  • Centralized database: The platform creates a centralized database of land records, making it easier for citizens, developers, and investors to access land-related information.
  • Ease of use: The platform is user-friendly and can be accessed online from anywhere, making it convenient for citizens and businesses to use.
