transparent land record system is needed for conversion and purchase Earlier this monththe UPA cabinet approved for introduction in Parliament several amendments to the Registration Act1908which governs the registration and documentation of property transactions Most citizens encounter its provisions when they buy or sell land or housing The rural development ministry suggests that the proposed amendments will make ownership of land more transparentland transactions saferand ease the process of land acquisition for industrial projects by reducing the land-title related litigation that has choked the courts It is no secret that Indias land market is opaqueand that it is a den of fraud One reason for this is the antiquity of the Registration Act and the many deceitful practices institutionalised over the decades The two most common sources of problems are under-reporting sales prices to under-pay stamp duty and selling land without holding a clear title to it The former leads to revenue losses and the latter to voluminous litigation and uncertainty among buyers Attention to this arena is welcomebut the rosy scenarios outlined by the ministry may be unduly optimistic Why has the state neglected this problem for so long The primary reason is that land has been an unimportant source of revenue for independent India This was not true throughout history For as long as records have been keptland was the primary source of revenue Taxes were as high as 75 per cent during the Mughal and early colonial periods and the source of much misery for the peasantry Maintaining land records was one of the main tasks of the state But by the early 20th centuryland had become much less important as a source of revenue Mid-centurythe independent Indian state eliminated taxes on agricultural production It focused instead on land reform and land acquisition (for new development projects) Independent India had little incentive to maintain land records because land did not provide revenue any longer This issue is back on the agenda now because of two main reasons Firstland markets in several parts of the country have exploded Land prices in these regional markets all of urban India and large rural areas like Punjab and Haryana are the highest in the world Generating revenue from this market is now a serious concern again Secondthe old process of land acquisition has broken down The state has been forced to develop a new land acquisition bill (circulating for two years now) Private sector players are demanding ever larger quantities of land for purchase or acquisition The entire process of land conversion from agricultural to other use is held up if land titles are unclear or disputed It is not surprising then that the proposed amendments to the Registration Act focus on exactly these two aspects: to systematise revenue generation by closing loopholes and to formalise land ownership by creating a transparentaccessible and digitised cadastre or land record system There are troubling aspects to the first goal A larger state presence and oversight will open up new avenues for corruption But that is an axiomatic argument and could be trotted out to criticise any new law Let us instead focus on the second goal There is a real possibility that a process that tries to formalise land title claims may unleash disputes and litigation on a massive scale Many conflicting claims of land ownership remain simmering Rivals often work out informal arrangementsavoiding full-scale legal disputes But if the situation changes if the claims have to be settled one way or another because they have to be inscribed for good on maps and cadastres that represent finalitya permanent settlement so to speakthen every simmering and adjusted dispute has to come out in the open Because anyone who does not stake a claim then will for ever lose her claim We do not know how many simmering disputes there arenor do we know how many disputes will be newly created But there is good news in that some states like Punjab and Andhra Pradesh have made significant headway in computerising their land records and making them accessible What is not clear is whether this has settled the title disputes This is a very difficult problemwhich is precisely why the state has shied away from tackling it so far One could argue that it had to be tackled somedaythat it could not be allowed to festerthat India cannot take a seat alongside capitalist nations if it does not have a firm grip on the most basic element of private property land One could argue that now is as good a time as any to take on this problem These are reasonable argumentsbut let us not fool ourselves into thinking that it is going to be easy Chakravorty is the author of The
