India, now the world’s most populous country with 1.4 billion people, faces the critical issue of limited land per person as an immediate concern. Efficient land administration is the solution, driving economic activities and overall progress. Land and property are central to the economy and society, impacting various aspects of human life and development. Land policies, national schemes, and sustainable practices are vital for harnessing these benefits while ensuring fairness and environmental responsibility. India is implementing central-level schemes like the Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP) and SVAMITVA scheme. These initiatives empower citizens with 'Record of Rights' to their land. Geospatial technology, including Geographic Information Systems (GIS), high-resolution satellite imagery, GPS, drone surveys, and Continuously Operating Reference Stations (CORS), is revolutionizing traditional land administration methods, enhancing efficiency and accuracy.
