The Union Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Puri launched the e-Dharti app and e-Dharti GeoPortal to help the public in getting the necessary information on fingertips and the government to effectively manage its properties.
e-Dharti app :
Under the e-Dharti app, all the three modules- Conversion, Substitution and Mutation related to properties have been made online. The payment system in Land and Development Office, L&DO has also been completely digitized. This enables the public to submit their applications online by visiting the L&DO website. This absolves the need to visit the office for submission of them and for follow up of their applications.
e-Dharti GeoPortal :
e-Dharti GeoPortal enables the lessee of the property to see the basic details of property along with the map showing its location. The lessee can also be issued a Property Card from this office about his property if he asks for it. e-Dharti GeoPortal will also benefit the government by letting it know the actual status of its vacant properties, whether there is any encroachment on the property.
