HYDERABAD: In tune with changing times, the Hyderabad district administration will use Tabs (tablet phones) to keep tabs on government land in 16 mandals. Hyderabad could be the first district in the state to use Android-based tablets to get land details.

Hyderabad collector Mukesh Kumar Meena has taken an initiative to provide Tabs to tehsildars working in 16 mandals in the district to update status of government land. “The government is keen to develop a land bank in each district. Though the revenue department has information about status of government land, it is not up-to-date. We have alienated government land to various departments like education, SC, ST, BC welfare, minorities and housing for various purposes. In fact, the district administration does not have exact status of land usage. Though we have allotted the land, the departments have not utilised it for the purpose for which it has been allocated and it has been lying vacant,” collector Meena told TOI.

According to revenue authorities, several parcels of government land have been lying vacant in various mandals under protection of local tehsildars, but a few got caught in legal tangles. “To develop the land bank and know status of the government land in the district, we have decided to use Tabs. A few days ago, we have imparted training to tehsildars of the 16 mandals in using Tabs. In a day or two, we will provide them the gadgets,” he added.

A suitable application has also been prepared by the district administration to feed land-related details like survey numbers, status of land (vacant/used), ownership (whether it is in government possession or in litigation), images of land etc. “The tehsildars have to feed details of the land. They have to take images of the land position on the spot and send it along with land details (mandal wise) to the main server. The land status will be updated once in 15 days,” the collector said.

The server would be linked to the collectorate and the Chief Commissioner of Land Administration (CCLA) office. Senior officers dealing with government land at both the collectorate and CCLA could get exact status of the land, he said.

“To identify government land, we will use data provided by the GHMC to us. They have developed data around 53,000 survey numbers based on ‘Town Survey Land Records’ (TSLR),” added the collector. The government has already sanctioned Rs two crore to construct compound walls to the existing vacant land to check encroachments.

“With the Tab, our task will be simplified,” said Khairatabad tehsildar. Another tehsildar working in Secunderabad mandal, N B Vishnu Sagar, said: “This is a new kind of work entrusted by the district administration and it is innovative.”
