The Government has taken several steps as below:

· Computerization of Defence land records- Raksha Bhoomi Software: The computerization of defence land records under the project ‘Raksha Bhoomi’ was undertaken by the Defence Estates Organization in association with NIC. Defence land records contained in General Land Registers (GLRs) for defence land inside cantonments and Military Land Registers (MLRs) for defence land outside cantonments were entered in the Raksha Bhoomi software which was made operational after verification and authentication of database in July, 2011. The data is updated periodically and shared with user services.

  • Digitization of Files and Documents for Protection and Preservation of Land Records: The Department also undertook scanning, indexing and digital preservation of defence land related records. As on date approx. 4 lakh files have been scanned and digitized. The digitization of records has been made a continuing process.
  • For physical verification of Defence Lands: Demarcation, physical survey of entire defence land, outside Cantonments and detailed polygon survey of defence land inside Cantonments have already been undertaken. About 98.95% and 100% survey work has been completed for defence outside cantonments and that inside Cantonments respectively. 1154 survey reports have been finalized/issued in respect of defence lands.
  • Integration of Land Survey Maps with BHUVAN: The maps of defence land pockets generated in the recently carried out land surveys (2012-13 to 2016-17) are being integrated with satellite maps of National Remote Sensing Centre under ISRO (NRSC) i.e. BHUVAN for assigning geo-coordinates and integration with Raksha Bhoomi database.

· Archival Unit and Resource Centre (AU&RC): As part of a multi-pronged approach and disaster management strategy, a central facility has been created for preservation and back up and to provide access to all user organizations. An Archival Unit & Resource Center has been operational since 2012 in Raksha Sampada Bhawan New Delhi. Another AU&RC constructed in Kirkee Cantonment for Southern Command is also functioning.

This information was given by Raksha Rajya Mantri Shri Shripad Naik in a written reply to Shri BhagwanthKhuba in Lok Sabha today.
