The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has recently launched the Bhoomi Rashi portal.
In the past years, acquisition of land for the purpose of National Highway projects, payment of compensation to the land owners etc. were done manually by physical movement of documents in the form of files.
However, in that procedure some constraints viz. delay in issuing notification, errors in the land/area details etc. were being faced.
In order to overcome these issues, to cut short delays and avoid parking of public funds with the Competent Authority for Land Acquisition (CALA), Ministry has developed a web based Utility –Bhoomi Rashi to fully digitize and automate the entire process of land acquisition.
