This has now been made mandatory. All the previous changes that reflected in the khasra will need to reflect in the bhu naksha, as well. Map rectification module, Map number / attribute update, Map number exchange, Map number update and Map clipping / update modules, are now available to facilitate this.

Bhu mafia in Madhya Pradesh
Various instances of land-grabbing by private land owners have come to the fore. The authorities have cracked down on numerous cases but across 1,000 police stations in Madhya Pradesh, over 150 cases still remain pending. Some are of the opinion that this number does not accurately show the extent of land grab in the state.
Instances of crimes by the bhu mafia became obvious even in the state’s capital, Bhopal. In a recent incident, an accused, Vijay Srivastava had started construction in violation of the authority’s decision. In place of a G+1 structure that he was permitted to build, Srivastava constructed a four-storey building and 12 shops on the lower two floors, on two EWS plots in Rishi East City located in Barkheda Pathani. The authority came down heavily on the bhu mafia across Bhopal in 2019 and has been taking action against big and small offenders. Srivastava’s illegal construction has been demolished.
