The Bihar state - spread over approx. 94163 sq. Km area, has an administrative setup comprising of 9 divisions, 38 districts, 101 subdivisions, 534 circles and 45,700 mauza(s) i.e. revenue villages. The very first survey of land i.e. Cadastral Survey (CS) of the state was conducted almost a century ago. These hundred years old records have now become fragile. Their day to day handling is critical in terms of loss of information and destruction of paper based maps. Fragmentation of land parcels and their subsequent maintenance regarding updation of records were not timely accomplished. This has posed a great challenge to the government in implementing development schemes, disposal of litigations and land acquisitions for infrastructure projects.

Even in the 21st century India, social status is very much defined by the piece of land one owns. Therefore, it is the obligation on the governments to have an efficient as well as an analytical mechanism to ascertain the ownership, type, and nature as well as cultivation pattern of the land. Manual records of land were never accurate and had been the reason of much discordance in the society. To tackle such situations computerization of the land records is the only answer.
