    Published on July 7, 2019

    Vice President, M. Venkaiah Naidu, has called for a comprehensive and model law to make land deeds, transfers and registrations litigation-free. Mr Naidu also called for the digitization of land records so that every transaction is hassle-free. He was speaking in New Delhi after releasing a Book titled ‘Land Registration, Global Practices & Lessons for India’ written by the Chief Secretary of Himachal Pradesh, B.K. Agarwal.

    The Vice President suggested that the Centre and the State governments should act together in a Team India spirit to bring out a comprehensive law on land-related issues. Observing that land is the basic source of livelihood for about 50 per cent of the Indian population, Mr Naidu stressed the need for a legally-binding document on land ownership.

    The Vice President called for ensuring the minimal interface between the people and the officials dealing with land issues, including registration, to eliminate corruption. Mr Naidu urged the Centre and State governments to move in the direction of simplifying the procedures and making them totally transparent.
