The Andhra Pradesh government has put the synchronization of databases of revenue and registration departments on the fast track. The integration of data of these two departments will enable sellers and buyers to not only register their immovable assets from anywhere in the state, but also will minimize the risk of malpractices at the time of registration.


According to deputy chief minister and revenue minister KE Krishnamurthy, the synchronization of the two largest departments in the AP government would be possible only after complete computerization of the land records. The deputy chief minister reviewed the progress of the implemen tation of reforms with the senior department officials on Wednesday .

Once data integration takes place, registration department can use the land ownership information available in the revenue department database to verify deeds before registering properties. “The list of prohibited survey numbers and plots will be made available to the registration officer. Only genuine transactions will get registered after data synchronization,“ he added. At present, the two departments are separate entities without any data interchange. “Computerization of land records and synchronization of these two departments will facilitate electronic data interchange and elimination of many undesirable practices from the system,“ he said.

While simplification of law and language is to be handled by a committee headed by retired IAS officer D Chakrapani, the integration of revenue and registration departments is being taken up with the help of the IT services department.
