PUNE: In a bid to streamline the 7/12 land extract records, the state government is running a pilot project in Mulshi taluka of Pune district regarding online land record management system, which would be later replicated across all 358 talukas of the state, a top government official said on Monday.
The online land record management system is being implemented in Mulshi taluka on a pilot basis. Through this facility, a land owner will be able to get the latest certificate of 7/12 extract within a period of 15 days. Not only this. The owner will be able to view the status of the certificate. But he or she will not be able to take a printout.
“Earlier, the certificate issuing process was done manually. It took two to three months or even two years to get the certificate. Getting the certificate was at the sole discretion of the Talathi. This encouraged malpractices. Now with the online system, there will be greater transparency as the land owners can view the progress of the certificate and cut issuing time to mere 15 days,” Chief Secretary of Maharashtra, J P Dange told reporters.
He said this project will be upscaled and implemented across Maharashtra. There will be horizontal and vertical connectivity. This meant that the Mantralaya will be internally connected and all the local administrative offices will be connected with Mantralaya.
“Using this facility, the chief minister himself will be able to keep an update on the progress of this project and monitor the certificate issuing process in all 358 talukas of Maharashtra,” he said.
He said that the government is looking to meet the target of generating 3000 MW energy from unconventional resources in next five years. It is looking at implementing Maharashtra Energy Development Agency (MEDA’s) hybrid project of integrating wind with solar energy.
“We will have one such facility in one district of every revenue division. These facilities will also be set up at major public places like Dehu, Alandi, Pandharpur and Shegaon,” he said.
The chief secretary also added that the government is aiming at generating 260-300 MW energy, fuelled by methane gas generated from urban kitchen waste.
