The Government of Assam's Department of Revenue and Disaster Management has launched a flagship initiative called "Mission Basundhara," which would help to provide land-related services via a specialised website.
All information will be available on people's cell phones, eliminating the need to visit Circle offices in their respective cities.
By moving services like land record updates and land mutations to the digital space, efficiency gains for both government employees and the general public are anticipated.
Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, is spearheading this effort, and the app's primary goal is to improve the effectiveness of land revenue services and decrease the amount of out-of-date land records
The mission's execution, as outlined by DILRMP, is expected to help in accomplishing a number of digital transformation objectives. Through the Mission Basundhara 2.0 initiative, all of the state's maps will be digitised, land record conflicts could be resolved, and it will become mandatory to integrate maps and update all land registration records.
As a result of this initiative, citizens of Assam will have easier access to real-time land records, and the state's commitment to transparency will be reflected in it.
