Materializing Block Chain Technology to Maintain Digital Ledger of Land Records

In most of the administrative sections of the government, the enormous amount of digital data is generated. As expected, there will be continuous data insecurity in different forms like tinkering university marks of students, making up of certificates which are bogus, changing or erasing the digital ledger of land records. We need a reliable method that makes this digital data immutable to generate trust between administrative sections of the government and the citizens. To do this, we can materialize the “Block chain, a peer-to-peer software technology” which is an inherent concept from “Bitcoin” crypto currency (Heng in The Application of Block chain Technology in E-government in China, 2017) . To hedge the digital records insecurity, block chain supports a distributed database which clasps encrypted ledger in a decentralized fashion. Upon the occurrence of a transaction, the transaction should be verified and then placed inside distributed encrypted ledger. Afterward, a set of “N” digital transactions are taken into account to calculate hash and kept in a block along with the timestamp. If the hash, timestamp along with transactions placed in a block, it is challenging to change or expunge transactions inside the block, considering that cryptographic block hash is irretrievable. The recently validated block is then connected and appended after the earlier block of block chain using earlier cryptographic block hash value. We have introduced the different schemes for materializing block chain technology in administrative sections of the government, e.g., in the department stamp and registration duties.

We are really glad to the staff of SRO Office, Patamata, Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh for giving us information about attributes of land registration.
