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.
To overcome the maladies affecting the manual system and to reduce the workload and to increase the efficiency, transparency, visualization; SPIDER & e- MANCHITRA portals have been developed and integrated. The integration of SPIDER & e-MANCHITRA Geo portals has made information visualization easier, transparent and useful.
