How E-Dhara has changed Gujarat land records system

E-Dhara is Gujarat’s e-governance portal for land record-keeping. You can also view the ROR, 7/12 document for official purposes

Gujarat has led the way when it comes to infrastructure and economic development. Its online land record system is also winning accolades from the government of India. Also known as E-Dhara, the land record digitisation system has won the award for best e-governance project. The system enables the user to access land records instantly online and update it as and when required, be it for obtaining crop loan or for getting electrical connection or subsidies. In fact, all 7/12 documents of 1.5 crore land records have been digitised. Landowners can access these land records from a dedicated counter in Taluka office by paying a nominal fee.

Here are some of the processes that have changed after the launch of E-Dhara:


ROR Issuance process

If you are a landowner, you can get the print of Record of Rights (ROR) online without submitting any manual application from the Taluka office. With the E-Dhara portal, you can obtain the 7/12 document even if you are aware of only one of these things- survey number, khata number, farm name or landowner name. The operator will be able to search the database and will confirm the details with you, before printing the document.

If you want to use the ROR for official purposes, you can get this printed document signed by the Mamlatdar or the designated person. The landowner also has to pay user charges of Rs 15 to get the ROR issued.

Since the entire process of land mutation has gone online, follow this procedure step-by-step to get your mutation done:
