Land Acquisition is critical for the commencement and completion of construction of National Highways, which begins once the alignment plan and land acquisition plan for a specific project, are approved. The process starts with the appointment of a revenue functionary of the State Government as Competent Authority for Land Acquisition (CALA) for each NH Project. It ends at taking of physical possession of the land by the implementing authority and disbursal of compensation to each affected/interested party.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Govt. of India has designed Bhoomi Rashi as a single point platform for online processing of land acquisition notifications under the National Highways Act, 1956 to accelerate highway infrastructure development projects in India. The transparency introduced by the portal Bhoomi Rashi has fast tracked the entire process of land acquisition and has resulted in greater benefits for all stakeholders. Farmers, landowners, contractors and investors are being benefited in the land acquisition process. The Bhoomi Rashi portal is a new milestone in the nation’s journey towards DIGITISATION and TRANSPARENCY.
