All changes in the Record of Right shall be carried only through the “Dweep Bhoomi” software with effect from 15th January 2010. These include various services like mutation, mortgage, sub-division, diversion and acquisition.

Any computerized Record of Right, which has been modified or corrected manually, will not be valid on or after 15th January 2010. Similarly, no photocopy of computerized record of rights will be valid and therefore none of the revenue officials will issue photocopies of Record of Rights. However, manual Record of Right issued prior to 15th January 2010 will continue to be valid till they are replaced by a computerized record.
The computerized record of rights shall be issued from the Ferrargunj Tehsil office in respect of all the villages of the Tehsil under the signature of the Tehsildar, Ferrargunj. The records issued by the Tehsildar shall be treated as the records issued under Rule 138 (1) of the A & N Islands, Land Revenue and Land Reforms Rules 1968.

The data entry of land records of all the villages of the Tehsil is completed and records are prepared in the Form ‘F’ as per Land Revenue and Land Reforms Rules of the Island.
