Unique Land Parcel Identification Number(ULPIN) System

Unique Land Parcel Identification Number (ULPIN) is part of the Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP). The identification is based on the longitude and latitude coordinates of the land parcel and depends on detailed surveys and geo-referenced cadastral maps. The ULPIN is generated using the Electronic Commerce Code Management Association (ECCM A) standards during the importing of the geo-referenced shape file into BhuNaksha, a cadastral mapping solution of NIC. It is a 14-digit identification number accorded to a land parcel. ULPIN is a Single, Authoritative Source of Truth for information on any parcel of land or property to provide Integrated Land Services to the citizens as well as all stakeholders.

The basic objectives are to identify departments dealing with land & rendering multi-dimensional land-related services to the citizens such as the Revenue Department, Panchayat, Forest, Registration Department, Survey & Settlement Department. ULPIN supports comprehensive information on land and properties and maintains consistency of core data across all departments & agencies of the government nationwide.

Digital India Land Record Modernization Programme

The Land Reforms(LR) Division was implementing two Centrally Sponsored Schemes viz.: Computerisation of Land Records (CLR) & Strengthening of Revenue Administration and Updating of Land Records (SRA & ULR). Later on 21.8.2008, the Union Cabinet approved the merger of these schemes into a modified Scheme named Digital India Land Records Modernization Programme (DILRMP). The main aims of DILRMP are to usher in a system of updated land records, automated and automatic mutation, integration between textual and spatial records, interconnectivity between revenue and registration, to replace the present deeds registration and presumptive title system with that of conclusive titling with title guarantee.

The DILRMP has 3 major components - (a) Computerization of land records (b) Survey/re-survey (c) Computerization of Registration. The District has been taken as the unit of implementation, where all programme activities are to converge. It is hoped that all districts in the country will be covered by the end of the 12th Plan period except where cadastral surveys are being done for the first time.
