Nagpur: In a significant development, the Divisional Commissioner Anup Kumar on Thursday launched a computerized Satbara (7/12) ATM vending machine that would provide great relief to farmers. Now, the farmers would not have to make rounds of Talathis for 7/12 extracts. The path-breaking Satbara ATM vending machine is the first in Maharashtra and would be installed in Nagpur Rural Tehsil Office.
Farmers would now procure the 7/12 extracts released from the ATM vending machine. One has to enter the requisite details like survey number etc and deposit Rs 20. The machine would then deliver the extract in print.
“This is Republic Day gift for farmers from District Administration’s path-breaking project. The 7/12 extracts would be available to farmers online within one minute. This system is easy and non-complicated. The machine would be the first of its kind to be set up anywhere in the country for providing information pertaining to land ownership record. The District Collector Sachin Kurve deserves a pat for this venture,” said Anup Kumar.
Speaking on the occasion, Kurve said, “Now, the Nagpur District — State’s first digital district – can now boast of an ‘ATM’ that can release 7/12 extracts just like an ATM spits out money. One has to enter the requisite details like survey number etc and deposit Rs 20. The machine would then deliver the extract in print,” he said.
A farmer from Godhni, Sidheshwar Kale deposited Rs 20 in the ATM and received the 7/12 extract. Kale said that earlier he used to make rounds of Talathi for Satbara. But now there is no such need. The ATM vending machine is doing the same job.
The 7/12 extract is the portion from the Land Register of any district in Maharashtra, which gives complete information about a certain piece of land. It is named after the 2 forms that are used to collect the information for the extract:
1. Village Form VII which records the details of the owner and rights.
2. Village Form XII which records the agricultural aspects of the land.
