Subsequently, “Thandaper” details were also digitized. As it stands now, the basic tax registers of 1620 villages out of 1664 villages in Kerala & Thandaper details of 900+villages have already been digitalized through this program.


The paperless office project “e-Office” is planned to be extended from Land Revenue Commissionerate to Village Offices. This is being done in a phased manner and initial steps for implementing the program have already been started in selected District Collectorates, Revenue Divisional Offices & Land Revenue Commissionerate in Kerala.

Integrated online transfer of registry

Pokkuvaravu is the process of mutating the title of property, from is person to another when the property is transferred. The services offered by Revenue, Registration & Survey Dept have been and online transfer of registry is implemented online through ReLIS system. The integrated online Pokkuvaravu system aims to complete the transfer of registry process in a time bound manner. More than 1620 villages have already adopted online Pokkuvaravu in Kerala.
After the online registration of deeds at sub-registrar office, the data regarding the mutation of the property (Form No.1 B) is automatically transferred to the concerned village office. The Village Officer receives all the details of the seller and the new owner in the ReLIS portal. The Village Officer checks for any unresolved disputes with any of the neighbors in terms of the boundaries or any other disputes before the transfer is effected. If the VO is satisfied that there are no disputes and the transfer is found genuine, the transfer of Registry is done in a time bound manner (except in sub division cases which have to be approved by the Tahsildar). The applicant is intimated via sms messages as well. During this process, the ownership of land under consideration will be updated in ReLIS. In cases where sub division is required, the application is forwarded to concerned Tahsildars (LR) with specific remarks. There is an option to put the application on hold in cases of erroneous registration, mismatch in land records, etc.
There are many cases reported where deeds registered are not presented for Pokkuvaravu, and hence the details are not updated in land records in the village offices. In such cases Pokkuvaravu is done only after effecting transfer of registry for all prior transactions. Also, the seller should have an equal of greater extent of land in his TP account as against the extent being transferred. After the completion of transfer of registry procedures, the land details of the new holder are updated in the website. The mutation of land transferred before the implementation of online Pokkuvaravu system can be done through ReLIS system. ReLIS ensures that the transfer of registry rules are followed meticulously, land records updated, ensures consistency and transparency in maintenance of land records and effective service delivery to the public.
