PUNE: In a novel initiative, the State will be facilitating 'e-Mojani' (e-measurement) in its land and city survey offices in a bid to end the endless trips of land holders to these offices.
As of now, people have to apply for getting the land measured which is necessary in case of land transfer and such other matters. After a few days of applying, the applicant is asked to pay the requisite fee, but, after paying, the actual work of measurement is kept hanging causing much inconvenience to the applicant who has to make endless trips to the revenue department to pursue the matter.
The work of installing the software has been completed and the implementation will commence within the next 15 days or so, Land Settlement Commissioner Chandrakant Dalvi said at a function in Satara, recently.
The software was distributed to land and city survey offices on January 1. Since filling up the online forms is a tedious task in view of the technicalities involved, the staff has to be properly trained. Within the next 15 days it would become possible to fill the online forms, Dalvi said.
At the time of filling the application, the applicant will come to know the amount of fee that is required to be paid, the day on which the actual measurement would be undertaken, and also the identity of the staff who would be carrying out the task.
