Bhoomi Rashi Portal | 14 Mar 2020

  • The Bhoomi Rashi Portal is an e-Governance initiative of the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways.
  • The portal intends to expedite the process of land acquisition for National Highways.
  • It has fully digitized and automated the entire process of land acquisition.
  • It has helped to make land acquisition error-free & more transparent with notifications at every stage being processed on a real-time basis.
    • Earlier, the acquisition of land for the purpose of National Highway projects, payment of compensation to the landowners etc. was done manually by physical movement of documents.
    • It had some constraints viz. delay in issuing land acquisition notification, errors in the land/ area details etc.
  • The portal is integrated with the Public Financial Management System (PFMS) for depositing the compensation in the account of affected/ interested persons on a real-time basis.
