Sometime back, Barun Mitra of Liberty Institute did an experiment in the tribal areas of Gujarat with the help of ARCH (Action Research in Community Health and Development) team. This was an attempt to solve the problem of ownership of land in the far-fetched jungle land of those removed from the urban model of governance services. Under the revised Forest Act of India, these tribals could own and cultivate their land but the problem was that they had to prove that they are the original owners of that particular piece of land. There was no authentic government record of their land titles. Whatever was there could have been very susceptible to corruption and money power. There entered these two NGOs. After a painstaking effort, they were able to pinpoint the land ownership through GPS (Global Positioning System) mapping system. They cross-checked the minute measurement details with the respective land-owners so that they can verify and the possibility of dispute is ruled out. Once, it was done, all the property records of nearly 12000 mapped lands were put into public domain at www.righttoproperty.org. Due to this, land claims by tribals were resolved in 90% of the cases as compared to those where such a kind of land-titling was not done.
