What is in the Collection?

This Collection will include records from 1887 to 1958. These records are written in Urdu and in Punjabi.

The records include 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 form biographies, some going back 110 generations to 2200 BC.
