Land Ownership 0% open


What data is expected?

Data should include maps of lands with parcel layer that displays boundaries in addition to a land registry with information on registered parcels of land. The Index focuses on assessing open land tenure data (describing the rules and processes of land property). Responsible use may enable tenure security and increase the transparency of land transactions. The assessment criteria were developed in collaboration with Cadasta Foundation. For more information on land ownership datasets and where they're located, check out Cadasta Foundation's Data Overview.

  • Parcel boundaries (inc. latitude and longitude)
  • Parcel ID
  • Property value (i.e. Price Paid, Property Tax Value)
  • Tenure Type (ie. leasehold, freehold, protected lands, public lands, customary lands)

How open is the data?

Data is not available in the format we look for but we were pointed to resources that go in that direction. >Land registration is a State Subject according to Constitution of India. However, under e-Governance initiative, the Central government has put in lot of resources to ensure that all land records are computerized at state level, which are in advanced stages of implementation. Links to the land records system/websites of the states i.e. Goa:; Odisha :; Uttarakhand :; Uttar Pradesh :; Madhya Pradesh :; Gujarat :; Rajasthan :; Tamil Nadu :; Karnataka : Public dialogue can be found [here](
