Latest news regarding Jamabandi
Certain functions of the online Jamabandi website remained non-functional after the lockdown that followed the Coronavirus pandemic. There were errors in the database and irregularities in owner names, as well as plot details. Due to all this, the registration process has been on hold for sometime. However, senior officers have maintained that discrepancies would be looked into. On July 22, 2020, after many complaints, the land registration facility was temporarily stopped, to give the authority some time to upgrade the software. The new software was launched on August 31, 2020 and applicants could get an appointment to register their property online. However, the authority is still looking into some issues pertaining to jamabandi services.
Amendments in the Haryana Land Records in 2021
To check disputes in the state, the government has brought about changes in the Haryana Land Records Manual. Henceforth, in the remarks section of the jamabandi or RoR, you will also be able to see a list of khasra numbers, in various notifications that are issued from time to time under various land-related acts.
This note, as per directions, should be made by the patwari in his own copy and Web-HALRIS system from the ‘roznamcha waquati’ (diary of daily incidents relating to land) or the online system of the department concerned.
Further, the responsibility of preparing land records also falls on the field kanungo, circle revenue officers, SDM and the district revenue officer, as well but in the case of entering the records, including appellate orders in mutations, sanctions, ‘farad badars’ (error correction in jamabandis) and various orders of revenue officials and courts in the Web-HALRIS, it is the sole responsibility of the concerned patwari.
Any changes made in the kind of land and girdawari during the preceding five years of each revenue estate, will also be entered in the Web-HALRIS.
The authorities have also limited the requirement to visit a patwari office, for verification of digitally-signed copies of jamabandis, mutations and farad badars.
