Officials of the department of land records said that such a re-survey has been planned for the first time in the state. It is being implemented by the state government under the Union government’s National Land Record and Measurement Programme (NLRMP), which aims to upgrade land records in the country. The project will be launched by state revenue minister Balasaheb Thorat and the state minister for revenue Prakash Solanke at Pirangut in Mulshi taluka, about 25 km from Pune.
Settlement commissioner and director of land records Chandrakant Dalvi said that 12 villages from Mulshi taluka have been selected for the pilot project. The land will be re-surveyed with the help of two advanced techniques — satellite imaging and GPS-based Electronic Total Stations. These techniques will enable accurate measurements of land and will help todraw maps based on data collected during the re-survey. Dalvi said that such a re-survey is being conducted for the first time in the state.
