    Land related discrepancies are extremely complex. The fact of the land available in the area and based on solid facts can be understood properly by experienced officers. But since most of the land issues are directly relevant to agriculture dependent people, their state, especially rural areas, are linked to questions of peace and order. Poor and uneducated farmers involved in land disputes, without unnecessary legal formalities them confused, inexpensive, speedy and accessible justice, to meet all these expectations and beliefs the Revenue Department under the Government of Rajasthan, Ajmer has created an installation court. For the settlement of revenue disputes this is the high court of Rajasthan and the decision of this court only can be challenged by the appeal in Supreme Court Jodhpur / Jaipur or in the Supreme Court Delhi. Its chairman and members can settle all disputes relating to the land by studying together for land records.

    Revenue Department Lawsuits Settlement Process:
    The Rajasthan Revenue Board has it’s headquarter in Ajmer and the circuit bench is located in Jaipur. The revenue board members put a moveable court in the state divisional headquarters so that the people of rural area can avoid their visit to the Ajmer or Jaipur and their trial will be at their closest.

    1947 Land Related Facts in Rajasthan
    At the time of joining India Union the state Rajasthan was having the population of 201.5 lakh of which 8.95 lakh was educated citizenry recorded in 1951. Only 0.01 lakh sq km urban area was recorded in the total area of 3.40 lakh sq km are of entire state. At that time 83.7 percent population used to live in 32240 villages of Rajasthan state. Of these, only 76.7 percent of the population was engaged in agriculture works. In these total villages approx 67 percent villages were populated with the less than 500. Approx 56.8 percent land of Rajasthan was covered with very dry desert land. Rajasthan literally was the state for thousands of small danion, guvadon and dispersed village population. The survey and land – settlement (bhumi – bandobasti) was not taken by the revenue department for a big land part of Rajasthan state. At the time of establishment of Directorate of Land Records (Bhu-Abhilekh Nideshalaya), only 213642 sq km area found under the settlement (bandobasti) from total area of 338794 sq km. Even the patwar institution was available only in 173602 sq km.

    Landlordism (Zamindari) System and Exploitation of Farmers in Rajasthan
    Before the independence, the king or rural was the final court of appeal. He appoints and removes judges as per his own choice. 60.7 percent of all the land was given to Vassals (jageerdar) and the remaining 39.3 percent part had possessed by the Khalsa or rural. In fact, all the farmers were the source of the problems associated with vassal (jageerdar). Other middleman – jameendar (landlords) and bisvedar were also the medium of their exploitation. Unjust revenue rates, taxes and ransom like persistent atrocities were common farmers. 207920 sq km part of new state was in possession of various vassals (jageerdaron). In Jodhpur and Jaipur respectively have 82 and 65 percent of those states was covered by the intermediaries / middleman. Most of the rajputana states were having their revenue law and rules before they merged Union of India, but this was the system only for legitimize to these exploitative polices. The tenant farmers (kashtakar) did not know ABCD about the accounts (khatedar) rights protection, tability and suitability of lagaan at that time. The highest bidder was given the land for agriculture and farming, which resulting was in unfair competition, the maximum revenue recovery (lagaan vashooli) and soil quality deterioration. Various princely states had different laws. In some states, the bid then mixed civil and revenue offices leased for the year was been picking up. The person taking lease or contract was supposed to take arbitrary collection from tenant farmers. When the wider public censure against his misdeeds becomes, the ruler raised the refund to the lessee takes prisoner. Then he only can be released after paying heavy fines, which he had collected from tenants who are already poor. Often he or his heir was re-appointed. Virtually ruler himself was partner in the exploitation of tenant farmers.

    Land Related Disorders in Rajasthan after 1947
    After the attainment of independence and context of a merger of the princely states into the Indian Union, the middlemen began to see rights holder farmers’ cruelty to oust autocratic ways. Fights, conflicts and disputes and law & order situations were beginning to move in wrong directions. To see farmers were evicted in droves, the Rajasthan government issued several ordinance and regulations for their escort. Officials themselves were not sure about their meaning and interpretation. Equity in bhulekh (land records) and the implementation of the organization was the lack of effective administrative officer. The integration of princely to India Union was a daunting task in itself. Also there was the lack of symmetry in the nature of work, service conditions of employees and salaries. There was chaos in financial matters. The capital of Rajasthan also been changed from one location to another location. Although Indian government was the main source of integration, but in the absence of powerful political organizations patriotism new state government had internal weak. The boards of subjects (prajamandal) were found to accumulate to deeply root in the lives of the general public. They were divided into clans and feudal, was filled with envy and spite. Actually speaking, India's independence in the early years’ vassals on tenants and landlords had reached new heights of tyranny.

    Internal Constitutional
    Responsibilities of Heads of States and Land Related Law:
    Integration – It forms a subject section was added that “the head of state and the cabinet will function under the control of given instructions periodically by the Government of India”. Accordingly, the efficiency of the complete integration of Rajasthan and the democratization process has started. The sub, who was promoted from the consent of the popular leaders, the central government in the interim period, the integration of Rajasthan, reinforcement and provided an opportunity to establish good governance. It is envisaged that the methods, budgets, Chief Justice of the High Court, members of the Board of Revenue, and the appointment of members of the Public Service Commission approval will be taken by the Government of India. The government appointed consultants (advisors) to discharging the responsibilities of law and order, integration, finance and revenue departments. They were brought from Uttar Pradesh and neighboring provinces. All India these departments in matters of importance to them through the decision were taken. They also participated in cabinet meetings and express their opinions on important matters used. They were not given the right of vote. Slowly native states of the Union of India as Rajasthan, like other provinces, became a unit. India's new constitution was presented to the Heads of States to accept authority. On 23 November 1949 the heads of state announced that the constitution was made by the constitution assembly would Rajasthan constitution and its provision would be paramount.

    Revenue Board Established in Rajasthan

At that time the department was having only one officer who had served in many forms, such as settlement commissioner (bandobasti ayukt), director of land records (bhu – abhi lekh nideshak) and Rajasthan inspector of registration and stamp superintendent etc. After a year, in March 1950, land records (bhulekh) and registration and stamp department has been isolated from the department of settlement (bandobasti vibhag). The director of land records (bhulekh vibhag nideshak) was appointed as the inspector of stamp and general registration department. For the help of director of land records in Rajasthan three assistant directors was appointed. For these all these bodies were formed. It said revenue board (rajaswa mandal). The work promises revenue was fear and unbiased judgment on the highest level.

    After the establishment of United Rajasthan state the Excellencies heads of the state by ordinance proclamation the Rajasthan Revenue Department (rajaswa mandal) was established.

    This ordinance was promoted on 1 November 1949 and it was replaced the Bikaner, Jakpur, Jodhpur, Matasya and former Rajasthan revenue boards. The Revenue Board estates were working under various statutes. These worked till the making of integrated methods for the entire Rajasthan. These revenues chambers stopped functioning from 1 November 1949. The outstanding disputes were transferred to the additional commissioner of other divisions. The appeal of these disputes which were related to the revision, they were transferred back to the new board of revenue and Rajasthan. Thus the revenue department becomes the Supreme Court of appeal, revision and reference of revenue board, Rajasthan, revenue matters.

    How to Check Land Records (Bhulekh) Online / Apna Khata by District / Tehsil / Village Name by Khata / Khasra Number or Owner Name
    After many years of revenue board establishment and digitization of government works the department started to provide their services through online mode. The main object of starting this service through online mode under the e-governance is to save time and money of farmers and all land owners. In past time the land owner was forced to visit in the tehsil office to get the information about his / her property and land after the starting revenue board and tehsil wise services for land records. But after starting the online service the revenue department made all the records available online 24 / 7 for all citizens under the Right to Information. For making all the records in digital mode the Rajasthan government asked for help to the Central government. The central govt. established a National Informatics Centre (NIC) for all states which was given the responsibility to make all works of departments in online digital mode. The department of revenue under the Rajasthan state government got the help through the NIC for building online website so that people can get easily access for their property related information. The NIC worked hard for making online software where all common people can check their land information by their district, tehsil and village wise. The department improved its software where the land owner can check all the digital information about his property through using his / her khata nmber, khasara number or with his / her own name.
