Guide to Dishaank App Functionalities & Benefits

Is it government land or private land? Dryland or wetland? Not sure about the Khasra boundary? To solve such confusion and dispute of land, the Government of Karnataka has initiated an ICT-based solution for a transparent transaction.

Dishaank, the synonym for horizon and vertices, is a mobile application developed by survey settlement and land records (SSLR) to be used by citizens of Karnataka state. Till now the layman had no idea that the land sold to him is land owned by the private, government, forest, natural drain, etc.

But with the introduction of this application, the data in a consolidated format is present on one platform for all. It was developed under the government program named Karnataka-GIS (K-GIS) and is implemented by Karnataka state remote sensing application center (KSARSC).

Why Dishanak?

The objective was to create a database that enables the user to extract information regarding the Khasra number linked with the owner’s information, the Location of land, and its extent.

Its vision was to create a relationship in Government to Citizen(G2C) interaction with ease to access the data. The information is linked with fingerprints to reduce data-related disputes.

Manytimes this information makes the vital role for successful land deal transaction.

Dishaank Mobile App

The current version is Dishaank app 1.0 and the map available on the site is an indicative boundary and may differ from the actual although an option to report an issue is available on the app.

These maps are available in different scales (1:7920, 1:3960, 1:1980). These maps were digitized in AutoCAD format by KSRSAC, Quality verified, and Certified by SSLR, and handed over to SSLR.

These individual maps have been published by SSLR for public use or reference– as PDF files. The georeferenced 1 cadastral map 2 is available for all the villages of Karnataka and is also used by different government authorities for reference.
