Unique ‘Thandepar’ system will start in Kerala from Monday

Thiruvananthapuram: In a milestone in the land registration process, owners of multiple landholders will be allotted a single ‘thandepar’, i.e., a unique revenue record of the property instead of several as has been the practice till now. The unique Thandpar system with Aadhaar linkage will come into effect from Monday, May 16, with its launch in the state capital.

With one person being allotted a single Thandpar number for all land holdings, it will become easier to trace the land ownership across the state. The single thanpar number will allow the revenue department to trace the land holdings of an individual, even if his assets are scattered across the state.

Under the Unique Thandpar system, a 13-digit unique Thandpar number will be provided to a parcel of land owned by an individual in the state. Currently, most of the villages are providing single to five digit numbers, and if a person has land in more than one village, he will have different thandapar.

The objective of the department is to ensure convenience and transparency in getting the land related details with the new system. The new system is expected to curb illegal land transactions.

Module for Single Thanpar system has been developed on ReLIS software of Revenue Department of Kerala. (ReLIS stands for Revenue Land Information System.)

As part of a radical change in the land registration process nationwide, land records will be linked to Aadhaar – the biometric ID system according to which a 12-digit random number is assigned to all Indian residents.

Kerala Revenue Department officials, however, confirmed that the unique Thandar system would come into existence even without Aadhaar linkage.

Officials said there is no need to link Aadhaar in a hurry.

The state’s move to link Aadhaar with Thandar, for the first time in the country, is also intended to implement the guidelines laid down by the Supreme Court on Aadhaar.

At present, in Kerala an individual can own up to 7.5 acres and a family can own up to 15 acres. Additional land, if any, in the possession or family, can be taken as additional land, and can be distributed to the landless under the Land Reforms Act.

In case of collective ownership of a single property, the Aadhaar numbers of all the owners have to be linked with Thandar.

The formula used to identify the land for assigning a single Thandpar number will be based on the percentage of the total area.

how to link aadhar with thandapar

A landlord can easily link Aadhaar with Thandar on his smartphone. Make sure it is done using the same phone number used for Aadhaar registration.

Linking can be done by verifying one’s identity with an OTP sent over the phone immediately after initiating the linking process on the revenue portal.

Linking can also be done at the village office. Here first of all the fingerprints should be scanned on the biometric system. The Village Officer will allot the Unique Thanedar after investigation. Thereafter, the details of all the properties in one’s name should be linked to the unique Thandpar.

Landowners who have not yet received Aadhaar can continue to use the existing Thandpar. Land records should be linked after Aadhaar is obtained.

Unique number different from Aadhaar

Revenue department officials said the plan is not to link the 12-digit Aadhaar number as it is for Thunderbird. Instead, once the Aadhaar details are linked to a specially created module on ReLIS, the system employed will automatically generate a new number.

The department clarified that the system will not save the Aadhaar details of the owner(s) of the land. The details will be used to identify the owner(s) using KYC submission.
