Officials of the Land Record Department said that the heir of a property keeps on changing and some times, the names of heirs are not reflected properly on the 7/12 documents and so it was necessary to save the records in the digital format, which cannot be tampered easily. 

Deshumukh said that the project has been initiated on a pilot basis in Mulshi taluka and some villages of Maval and Khed taluka. “Around 161 7/12 documents have been provided to Mulshi villagers. We will start providing this facility in five villages of Mulshi, Maval and Khed taluka. While uploading the document online, 24 parameters are being checked so that there are no errors in the document,” added Deshmukh. There are 1,911 villages in Pune district according to the district administration.
