Title in the Language of the Record

بھارت، پنجاب، Moga میں لینڈ ملکیت Pedigrees، 1887-1958

Record Description

This Collection will include records from 1887 to 1958.

This collection contains land ownership pedigrees (Shajjra Nasb), kept by the state at the district level. These pedigrees show familial relationships of individual’s land ownership as it was passed from father to son. Records appear to be written in Urdu script, which is read from right to left.

The Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Government of India, has initiated a centrally sponsored scheme to computerize land records. The centrally sponsored scheme on Computerization of Land Records (CoLR) was started as a pilot project in eight districts/states:

  • Rangareddy (Andhra Pradesh)
  • Sonitpur (Assam)
  • Singbhum (Bihar)
  • Gandhinagar (Gujarat)
  • Morena (Madhya Pradesh)
  • Wardha (Maharashtra)
  • Mayurbhanj (Orissa)
  • Dungarpur (Rajasthan)

Families and pedigrees are recorded in the land records. Extended pedigrees from biographies, some going back 110 generations to 2200 BC. 

This collection of land ownership pedigrees from Moga covers the years 1887 to 1960. 

For a list of localities currently published in this collection, select the Browse link from the collection landing page.
