Digital re-survey: Phase One nearing completion; 9(2) notification issued


THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The first phase of the digital re-survey, which started in November 2022 in the state with the objective of documenting every piece of land, is nearing completion. The survey process has been completed in 158 villages out of the 200 villages included in the first phase and 9(2) notification was issued. With the addition of seven more villages in the second phase, a total of 165 villages have already been notified.

Digital re-survey will be done in 1550 out of 1666 villages. 116 villages were earlier surveyed using RTK technology. 3,35,732.16 (86%) of the 3,90,293 hectares included in the first phase were surveyed. Notification was issued in all the villages included in the first phase in Kollam, Ernakulam, Kottayam, Kannur and Kasaragod districts. 1500 surveyors and 3200 helpers are employed on contract basis for survey work. 858.42 crore is being spent on digital re-survey.

Will be made available in village offices

9(2) notification shall be issued once the digital re-survey is completed in a village. It will be made available at the village offices for inspection by the public. Complaints can be filed online to the Assistant Director of Survey if any defect is noticed. This will be resolved and final notification will be issued. The final notification will be made after the survey is completed in all the villages.

Goal will be delayed

It is aimed to complete the re-survey process in four years. However, the goal will be delayed even further, as many of the instruments for the survey arrived late and the work in the first year could not be completed on time as expected. Digital re-survey is done with the help of modern systems like drones, Real Time Kinematic (RTK) Rover, RTS (Robotic Total Station) and CORS (Continuously Operating Reference Station).
