Karnataka Bhoomi RTC: Latest news
Update on March 15, 2021
The frequent crashing of the ‘Karnataka Bhoomi’ portal server, is causing a lot of trouble at various state government offices, including those of the sub-registrar, tahsildar and the Common Service Centres (CSCs). The work is being held up owing to a recurring problem with the ‘Bhoomi’ server, where all land records are compiled on an integrated database. Officials have said that the portal is being upgraded, to bypass a few minor glitches, adding that the upgrading process is 99% complete and the entire system would be streamlined in a few days.
Update on February 18, 2021
To ensure that all land records are available easily, the Karnataka State Remote Sensing Applications Centre (KSRSAC) is helping the survey settlement section of the revenue department to digitise the maps. KSRSAC has been given the task to digitise the hissa (plots which are a part of main survey numbers) maps. They will be taking up a two-year-old project at a cost of Rs 25 crores. This exercise is different from uploading all maps on Bhoomi.
According to the government data, around 1.25 lakh applications are pending to be updated on the RTC portal from the last three years. The authorities say that the pendency is due to mutation and transfer of the ownership of the property over and beyond its original sizes. As per media reports, Bidar has the highest number of applications seeking corrections in RTC (26,200) followed by Chamarajanagar (10,825). Bengaluru urban has over 9,600 applications pending. Currently, RTC correction cannot be done online. Hence, a lot of work has to be done manually, after verifying the information furnished by the applicant.
