The edited volume is one of the pioneering publications on land titling. Land symbolises wealth, social identity and status, and power. Land title is a security; however, at present it is a ‘presumptive title’.With increasing land acquisition and improper land titling, the major issues faced by the administration are land grabbing, corruption, dispute and other land related conflicts.So it is a matter of high importance for the state as well as the society and citizens of India. Some unfinished agenda of Indian state, such as redistribution land, survey & settlement of forest lands, Government lands, use of wastelands, etc. also demand conclusive land titling. How do we move forward towards ‘conclusive titling’ from ‘presumptive title’ is a central query of this Volume. Neo-liberal state introduced National Land Record Modernisation Programme (NLRMP) in 2008, which incorporates a component of guaranteeing conclusive land titling. Implementation, outcome and impact of NLRMP are varied across different States of India, which has intensified debate on land titling. Various options are available and need to be debated in the context of conclusive land titling, such as whether enacting a law, expediting implementation of NLRMP, adopting Torrens System and suitable modern technology for Survey/Resurvey, Registration, citizen-centric services, integration between different components, etc. This book covers all possible policy and political issues regarding land titling so that the ‘journey towards land titling’ is smoothened and strengthened.
