Portal ready to provide details of Bengal land info

‘Banglar Bhumi’, a portal on land records of West Bengal, is ready to provide all land related information to people, particularly entrepreneurs, sources in the state’s Land and Land Reforms department said.

The land have been divided into various zones like agricultural zone, industrial zone and tourism zone for easy spotting of target lands.

‘The basic idea behind marking the zones is that industrial and other big projects of the state government and the Centre will be located in the appropriate zones without disturbing food security in the state,’ the sources said.

The block-wise land use maps show single, double and multi crops land, dry and barren land, forest land, metal roads, national highway, state highway, railway network, industrial area, area under infrastructural development and water bodies etc. ‘This will help the entrepreneurs intending to set up industries know the actual infrastructure available at the proposed sites,’ the sources said.

However, the concept of zoning in block-wise maps of the districts was introduced in May 2011 to identify agricultural zone, industrial zone and tourism zone, townships and wetlands. The block-wise land use maps of five districts -- West Midnapore, Bankura, Purulia, Burdwan and Birbhum -- have been prepared and formally published in March 2010.  The soft copy of the maps with zoning of these districts will be launched formally by state finance minister Amit Mitra on Friday and chief minister Mamata Banerjee.
