About Dishnaak app
Talking about the Survey Settlement and Land Records (SSLR) unit of Karnataka’s revenue department is ensuring easy availability of original land records through an app called Dishaank.
The Dishaank app is developed under the Geographical data system (GIS) program of the Karnataka State Remote Sensing Applications Center (KSRSAC).
The KSRSAC provides satellite data to agencies like the SSLR unit for innovative use.

Availability of digitized, scanned & geo-referenced maps, made it easier to create the app.
Data available on the app
The Dishaank app provides information about the land, which has the name of the landowner, the extent of land, sort of ownership, variety of land, litigations, land category, and it is also reported that the other active transactions being done on the land.
Advantages of Dishnaak app
Citizens can easily avail themselves of the data about the land as recorded within the Bhoomi database. this may help in reducing land disputes and can bring transparency within the maintenance of land records. However, consistent with the Karnataka government, the Dishaank app’s purpose is merely to produce clarity on the first status of land and therefore the app shouldn’t be used for legal purposes in any land-related disputes.
